Description

This command adds text to the text buffer for the current method stack: note the Method Editor will enclose the complete text in curly brackets automatically, so these do not need to be entered.

The Text: command supports leading and trailing spaces and can contain square bracket notation, that is, you can include or add the contents of a variable to the text buffer. You build up the text block using the Begin text block and one or more Text: commands. The Carriage return, Linefeed, and Platform newline options add the appropriate character(s) to the end of the current Text: line. When you have placed one Text: line and you press Ctrl/Cmnd-N to create a new method line, the Text: command is selected and the current carriage return and line feed options are copied to the new method line automatically. You should end a block of text with the End text block command, and you can return the contents of the text buffer using the Get text block command.
