returnInField command places a return character at the position of the insertion point in a field.
autoTab property of the field is
true and the insertion point is on the last line of the field and the field is any type except scrolling, the
returnInField command does not insert a return character but instead sends the
tabKey command to the field.
HyperCard automatically sends the
returnInField command to a field when the user presses Return and the insertion point is in the field.
You can handle the
returnInField message as follows:
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
