About the Visual Designer Rich Text Field

Rich Text Field Component
This component creates a field that can store text in Rich Text Format (RTF). In general, you will want to place a Rich Text Field on its own tab on a form. See Understanding the Common Field Types for information on using this field type.

The Rich Text Field component is suitable for large text fields, such as a field that uses the nvarchar(max) data type. This component uses the following input properties:

  • FieldName (required): This string links the Form Template Part to a Field in the form's entity. For this input property, replace the <Required> default with Name of an Entity Field that meets the requirements for a multi-line text field. See Multi-Line Text Field for more information.
  • ShowLabel (required): When set to 1, the specified LabelCaption appears on the form. When set to 0, the LabelCaption does not appear. If the Rich Text Field will appear on its own tab, set this property to 0.
  • LabelCaption: This string specifies the caption that can appear on the form to the left of the field.
  • FontName: This string specifies the font used for the caption and the field value. It defaults to Tahoma.
  • LabelWidth (required): This property specifies the width of the LabelCaption in pixels. A typical LabelWidth in Aptify is between 79 and 99 pixels.
  • Multiline: A value of 1 specifies that this is a text field supports more than one line. If this property appears as an input property, leave it at its default value.
  • LabelCaptionCultureString: This string specifies the culture string used to localize the label. For this input property, specify the base string for the applicable Culture String record. See Working with Culture Strings for more details.
