[ALLY] Text in and out of an area

From: gregco:pressroom at: 13-Sep-2000 22:00

I haven't been able to come up with a way to send a string of text to a view area for editing and then retrieve it for further processing. In other words, I want to: 1. Create a face with a text area. 2.Create a string of text programmatically. 3. Send that text string to the area for manual editing. 4. Retrieve the edited text for further program manipulation. No doubt there is a simple answer to this, but I haven't found it in the docs or by trial and error. Any ideas? Greg Coughlan
