3.3.1 Text input panes

When you want to enter a line of text -- for instance a search string -- a text input pane can be used.

(setq text (make-instance 'text-input-pane
                          :title "Search: "
                          :callback 'test-callback))
(contain text)

Figure 3.4 A text input pane

Notice that the default title position for text input panes is :left .

Text may be placed in the text input pane itself by giving the :text keyword a string argument.
