Tookit’s text routines enable you to view (display) or edit text in a window. They support margins, word wrap, and scrolling (when the window view is smaller than the entire window).
- The view function supports both horizontal and vertical movement within the window, as well as character, word, and line movement.
- The edit function gives you editing capabilities such as character, word, and line deletion, inserting a line, joining lines, and toggling insert and overstrike mode.
If desired, the text routines can store text entries in a compressed format, which can be stored to, or loaded from, either a text window or an array. Text windows also can be loaded from an array.
