Use an ExpressionEdit control so users can edit a TestStand expression with syntax coloring, popup help, and statement completion. Although you typically do not need to edit expressions in a user interface application, you can connect a manager control to a read-only ExpressionEdit control to display text information about the application state, such as the pathname of the sequence file selection or the name of the current user.

You can also use ExpressionEdit controls in dialog boxes for step types and in tools in which you prompt users to enter a TestStand expression.
