Static items

A static item defines a simple form item as a final grid element that does not change.

A static item is a form element, such as text (typically, a field label), that is defined directly in a GRID (or SCROLLGRID) container in the form LAYOUT section.

Static items are identified by the fglform compiler and converted to an AUI tree node element in the resulting .42f file.

Simple texts

It is possible to define simple texts and field labels in the form layout:
LAYOUT
GRID
{
A simple text
}
END
END
Note:

To simplify internationalization, consider using named static labels instead of hard-coded text in the form layout.

Horizontal lines

You define a horizontal line with a sequence of hyphen-minus (-) characters in a grid:
LAYOUT
GRID
{
This is a horizontal line: ------------
}
END
END
Note:

Horizontal lines are mainly provided for TUI mode applications. While horizontal lines will be represented by some GUI front-ends, it is not a typical practice in common graphical applications.
