Overview

This page describes the XML attributes for the XUI text entry widgets. These are some of the XML elements and attributes used within the floaters, panels, and so forth, that make up the viewer user interface. They are used by the XUI files in the \skins\default\xui folders.

Many XUI elements share the same attributes. Rather than repeatedly describing them, we just list their names here and describe them at Skinning HowTo/Common XUI attributes.
