Messages



  None.
  EVENTS:
  All events are handled internally unless the keywords CR_EVENTS or FOCUS_EVENTS are used.
  If the CR_EVENTS keyword is used, the event structure returned to your Event Handler routine
  is defined like this:
      {ID:Obj_New(), TOP:Obj_New(), HANDLER:Obj_New(), NAME:self._name, $
        EVENT_NAME:'FIELD_CARRIAGE_RETURN_EVENT', VALUE:Ptr_New(), TYPE:""}
  If the FOCUS_EVENTS keyword is use, the event structure returned to your Event Handler routine
  is defined like this, where ENTER is 0 if focus leaves the text widget and is 1 if focus enters
  the text widget:
      {ID:Obj_New(), TOP:Obj_New(), HANDLER:Obj_New(), NAME:self._name, $
        EVENT_NAME:'FIELD_CARRIAGE_RETURN_EVENT', VALUE:Ptr_New(), TYPE:"", ENTER:0}
