Everything you wanted to know about Text object in NiceForm

Basics

Text object displays text. You place a text on a form when you need to identify or annotate another object such as an edit field or when you want to include text on a form. It can contain fixed text or it can get its contents from variable or database field. If it is connected to a variable it will change automatically every time variable value changes. The same happens if a record in a database changes and text is connected to a field from that database.

Style

For every text object you can set a different font properties (like size, style, color and character set) and background color. If you want to fit the bounding box around the text element closely to the object select the “Best fit” option in the “Text Properties” dialog box (BTW – you can open object properties window by double clicking the object or by pressing F2 after selecting the object).
