Rich text Rich text controls display an
input field in which users can create, edit,
save, and display rich text on a page. Rich
text fields are more versatile that plain
text fields because they can contain
objects, file attachments, or pictures as
well as text with formatting options such as
italics or boldface.
At run time, rich text fields look similar
to edit box or multiline edit box fields,
but they also display a formatting toolbar
with options for changing fonts, inserting
tables, aligning text, inserting links and
file attachments, and more.
