Adding the formatting toolbar to a multi-line text box

To enable you to format text that you type into a multi-line text box, you can use the formatting toolbar. You can also copy and paste into this control, and all formatting is retained.

A control can only be a multi-line control if it has a Data Type of String and has a Max Length of -1, and a String Sub Data Type of HTML.

To add the formatting toolbar to a multi-line control:
  1. Start the Window Manager component.
  2. On the Business Objects tree, navigate to, and open the required window. For example, Incident.
  3. Select the relevant multi-line control, for example Details, then expand the Properties grid ().
  4. Within the set of Display Option Settings properties, alongside Show Toolbar, select True.
    The toolbar appears at the top of the control.
  5. Click .
