Static text


Static text is a window control for the purpose of placing text on the screen. A static text control cannot receive input focus, but the user can interact with it by pressing the text hotkey, if one has been defined.

Static text can be drawn using the style and colours of the current Windows theme, or its appearance can be specified by the programmer.

A static text control is defined using the form:

+|–text text_id at x, y {
