Static Text Widget

Inputs 8-11: data inputs (all the same).
Input 7: address (standard interpretation).

Displays text on the screen. The text may not be edited by the user, but the program can change it.

Behavior

Inputs get concatenated with implied synchronization into a single input value. However, "Asynchronous" simply routes input messages to an input value.

Never produces an output.

Appearance

Read-only textual display of internal data initially and then input data as it arrives.

"Use heading as caption or status message" places the task's caption to the upper-left of the button as a heading.

Interactive Demonstration

Press to invoke static.net.

The text "Internal data..." comes from two static widgets. Note that static widgets draw on the background without any outline or other delimiter.

Type into the outline and "defocus" to change the lower static text. You can defocus with the tab key or by clicking the mouse on the background.
