This example illustrates the use of string input. The subject is presented with a question and is asked to type a response. The subject's response echo's to the display, so that they may see
their response as they are typing.
String input in E-Prime is currently supported by setting the MaxCount parameter on the Advanced property page of the Duration/Input tab for the object collecting the response. The
MaxCount parameter allows you to set the maximum number of keys allowed for input. The Termination Response property designates the input to be used to terminate the input mask prior
to reaching the maximum response count set in Max Count. This example uses the Enter key as the termination response. The Echo tab in the Advanced Properties permits the user to specify the
device to which input will be echoed, and to set properties for that device. In this sample, the response is echoed via the Display device, and the properties are set to echo black text on a white
background below the question presented to the subject.
For more information on the properties related to string input please refer to the Advanced Device properties heading under section 184.108.40.206 in the E-Prime Reference Guide.
