There are two types of text fields in the VAC Configuration
Dialog: the single line text field is usually used to specify
a single parameter while the multiline text field is used
to specify several parameters, i.e. menu items in menus and
messages in scrollers.
There are single and multiline text fields
in the VAC Configuration Dialog.
When specifying parameters in the multiline
text field you must specify each message on its own line.
To specify a URL on the Internet, write http://www.yourhost.com/
and not just www.yourhost.com
To specify a file in your hard disk, write file:///C:\MYCATALOG\hello.html
and not C:\MYCATALOG\hello.html
You can also specify relative links, such as
In some cases, if you do not fully specify the
links, they will not work.
Applets using several text fields or file fields:
If you are specifying items in an applet that
is dependent of several text fields or file fields, then make
sure that each field has the same number of rows. Let's say
that you have a message applet. In it you specify the text
messages and an URL for each message. If you delete one row
in the text items field and forget to do it in the URL field,
then the VAC Dialog will insert and empty text row that corresponds
to the URL-item. This is also the case with the file fields.
The VAC Dialog defines a row as a linefeed character which
means that if you have pressed the ENTER key too many times
you may have "invisible rows" after the text rows.
In that case use the PAGE DOWN key to get to the last line
and delete them with the BACKSPACE key.
