The Windows Phone SDK includes three controls designed for text entry:
RichTextBox. Text can be entered either by using the onscreen keyboard known as the Software Input Panel (SIP) or by using the hardware keyboard if the phone has one.
TextBox control displays content as well as allowing the user to type or edit content. A
TextBox can display text on a single line, or on multiple lines. A multiline
TextBox wraps text to the width of the control.
Text is stored as a
System.String, using the
TextBox.Text property. The alignment of the text can be changed using the
TextAlignment property. Text is displayed according to various font-related properties, shown earlier in Table 6.1.
