Editing indicators

The status of the editor is displayed using graphic indicators. They inform the user about things such as:

  • Editing mode (numeric/alphanumeric, language-specific modes)

  • Character case

  • Predictive Text status

  • Available space

When the editor is in the main pane, the indicators are located in the Navi pane. A Data query that resides in a pop-up window has its indicators within the window.

Using editing indicators in applications

The API to use for editing indicators is the Indicators API. For the navi pane, use the Navigation pane API.
