Textarea Input

This form element is used to hold multiple lines of arbitrary text.

During display, the first non-empty formatted line of the contents of a textarea input element is shown enclosed within "#" characters, e.g.

#The second line of____________#

The text can be modified by activating the textarea input element which causes a helper window that contains a text input area and the two standard buttons to appear. The contents of the text area can be edited in the usual way, and additional assistance is provided by the pop-up menu "Edit Menu". The resulting value may finally be accepted or discarded.
