Field Value



An Edit control can be used as a standalone control or as a subcontrol in another control type. For example, the area where a user can type in a value in a combo box control is an Edit control, and in this case the control is not part of the content view.

Edit controls can also represent controls that contain passwords. The IsPassword property enables products such as screen readers to know whether to reveal the contents.
