Text Boxes

``Text boxes are edit controls into which the user types information. The user can accept the current text, edit it, delete it, or replace it. The LEFT ARROW and RIGHT ARROW keys move the insertion point within the text in a text box; when combined with CTRL, the same keys move the insertion point to the beginning and end of the text.''
