Description

The Input control allows a single line of input text. It has optional headers, footers and other features.

Note that Input (Bootstrap) does not have .text property. Use .value to get the value of the control.

To disable an Input at runtime, do the following:

  Input1_contents.disabled = true

To highlight an Input control with an error (and return it to normal):

  $("#Input1").addClass("has-error")
  $("#Input1").removeClass("has-error")

To hide and show the Help text:

  $("#Input1 .help-block").addClass("hidden")
  $("#Input1 .help-block").removeClass("hidden")

Popovers and Tooltips are supported.

Standard events are supported. For this control, the onfocusout event will be useful. It gets called when the user changes the focus to another field.

Example

Call a function when user is done editing field.

// JavaScript
Input1.onfocusout = function() {
    NSB.MsgBox("Value is " + Input1.value);
};

' Basic
Function Input1_onfocusout()
  MsgBox "Value is " & Input1.value
End Function


To respond to a click on the optional icon:

// JavaScript
Input1_icon.onclick = function() {
  NSB.MsgBox("You can display a message or take other action when clicked");
};

' Basic
Function Input1_icon_onclick()
  MsgBox "You can display a message or take other action when clicked"
End Function

To change the datalist at runtime:

// JavaScript
Input1.datalist = ["Monday" , "Tuesday" , "Wednesday" , "Thursday" , "Friday"];

' Basic
Input1.datalist = ["Monday" , "Tuesday" , "Wednesday" , "Thursday" , "Friday"]
