As with all field types, to choose a textbox for one of your fields just go to the Edit Form » Fields tab. There, select the Textbox field type on the main page, or click the Edit icon and select it there. As with all other field types, the first tab of the Edit Field dialog contains the same information and is discussed here.
- Size: this controls the width of the field.
- Max Length: this lets you control the maximum number of characters that people enter into the field.
- Field Comments: this setting lets you add some comments to the field. Sometimes it can help to provide a little explanation to what information a field is storing - the field label (Display Text) may not be enough. Comments appear underneath the field.
- Highlight: this displays the textbox in a particular colour: red, orange, yellow, green or blue. Sometimes it can help to draw emphasis to particular important fields.
