Editing Text

To edit the text within the Text Box, click the Edit button in the Editing group on the Design ribbon tab of the Text Box Tools contextual tab set or use the corresponding item in the context menu.


This adds the Text Box Editor context category to the Dashboard Designer’s ribbon and allows you to modify the content within the Text Box.


To learn how to edit the content within the Text Box, see Rich Text Editor. After you change the document, click Edit again to finish editing.

To access the formatted content of a Text Box in code, use the TextBoxDashboardItem.Rtf property. To access the plain text, use the TextBoxDashboardItem.Text property.


Note that the Text Box can be bound to data. To learn how to do this, see Providing Data.
