Text Box A5W Directive

Syntax

%A5W%

Description

The %a5w% flag makes the text box behave like an editor for Alpha Five web pages (e.g. .a5w pages). The html tags are color coded. The text inside the <%a5w ... %> tags are interpreted as Xbasic and all of the bubble help and auto-complete for Xbasic works correctly.

dim txt as P
dim txt.object as P
txt.text = <<%a%
<body>
this is the body
<%a5
'this is Xbasic code
dim tbl as P
tbl = table.open("customers")
%>
</body>
%a%
ui_dlg_box("",<<%dlg%
[%A5W%.75,15txt];
%dlg%)

This code produces the following dialog box.
