Textbox Query

Apr 30 2011 | 2:44 pm

Whenever I click off or out of a textbox, it outputs the text within it, how can I stop this?

I want the text to only be output from the textbox when I send it the message to do so.

I have disabled the enter on tab and enter on return options within the textbox inspector but there is nothing to stop it outputting when clicking away from the textbox.

I am trying to create a Username/Password login interface for an installation for university…

Kind Regards,

you could have [textedit] to the right inlet of [message] and then bang the message as needed, but i'll bet this approach may be more what you are after:

a [zl reg] after the textbox could also help.

Gates with triggers can do the trick too.
