Getting to know the Web Controls

Lesson 17 - WebEdit

In this lesson we will look at the WebEdit control in DataFlex. The WebEdit can be used to enter some notes or long comments. For example for adding additional comments on a holiday reservation. Let’s have a look at an example.


  • This example demonstrates a simple page of a web application for booking a vacation.
  • We can fill in all the information. At the bottom we can fill in some notes or extra information.
  • As you can see, a scrollbar is activated when there is more text to show in the occupied height of the control.
  • This control can be used with or without a data binding. Of course the datatype text is very suitable for this.
