Lesson 4. Using Dialog Boxes > Using Text Boxes

Using Text Boxes

You use a text box to enter the information that Windows NT or a Windows application needs in order to complete a command. This information is usually a file name or folder name. Figure 4.1 shows a text box and list boxes in the Open dialog box (accessed from the Windows WordPad File menu).

To activate a text box using the mouse, position the mouse over the text box (the mouse pointer changes to an I-beam) and click. The I-beam pointer shape indicates that the area you're pointing to will accept text. Look for the I-beam when you want to enter text in a dialog box. Notice that the insertion point (a flashing vertical line) appears in the active text box.
