SmartIcon To Help Test Text and Rich Text

To help me and my clients when testing fields that should be either text or rich text, or to see the effect of coloured text on forms with coloured backgrounds, I knocked up this simple SmartIcon to insert text into the current field. It uses two 'standard' fonts and colours when inserting the test text. It's a noddy solution, but it saves a lot of time. Just paste this into a new SmartIcon.


REM "SI: Test Text." ;
REM "To assist with testing text and rich text fields." ;
REM "To also see effect of text colour on a coloured background." ;

@If( ! @IsDocBeingEdited; @Return(0) ; @Success );

@Command([TextSetFontFace];"Helv");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[Black]);
@Command([EditInsertText];@NewLine+"Test Text" + @NewLine );
@Command([EditInsertText];"Helv - standard Notes font." + @NewLine );
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC ");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[Gray]);
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[Red]);
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[Yellow]);
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[Green]);
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[Cyan]);
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[Blue]);
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[Magenta]);
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[DarkRed]);
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[Brown]);
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[DarkGreen]);
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[DarkCyan]);
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[DarkBlue]);
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[DarkMagenta]);
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC" + @NewLine );

@Command([TextSetFontColor];[Black]);
@Command([EditInsertText];"Wingdings - different appearance in RTF to that in Text only." + @NewLine );
@Command([TextSetFontFace]; "Wingdings");
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[Gray]);
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[Red]);
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[Yellow]);
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[Green]);
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[Cyan]);
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[Blue]);
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[Magenta]);
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[DarkRed]);
@Command([EditInsertText];"TC");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[Brown]);

@Command([EditInsertText];"TC");
@Command([TextSetFontFace];"Helv");
@Command([TextSetFontColor];[Black]);
@Command([EditInsertText];@NewLine+"Test Text" + @NewLine )
