Note: This is a work in progress and will be formatting errors. Read more about the project on the home page.
HyperCard sends the
closeField message to an unlocked field when, after editing, a user (or handler) performs an action that closes (that is, removes the insertion point from) the field. HyperCard sends
closeField only when the text actually changes.
The following actions close a field, saving any changes that were made to the text:
- Clicking outside the field
- Moving the insertion point to the next field with the Tab key
- Pressing the Enter key
- Pressing Command-Shift-Z to revert the field to the last saved version
- Going to another card
- Quitting HyperCard
Any return-separated list of built-in commands, user-defined handlers, or keywords that are part of a message or function handler.
put "Hello world" -- built-in command
get total(field 1) -- function call
global HelpInfo -- keyword
