Defines how to specify a text field in an activity entry.

To specify a text field, the type attribute of the <snx:field> element must be set to text. For example:

<snx:field

...

type="text">

...

</snx:field>


An <snx:field> element of type="text" can contain the following child elements.

Table 1. Child elements of the <snx:field type="text"> element

Element
How treated on input
Description
<summary>
Required
The text contained in the field. The first 2 KB of text are stored in his element. If the description is larger than 2 KB, the remainder of the description is stored in an extended description file.
<link>
Optional
Specifies the URI from which the extended description file can be accessed. If the content of the text field is greater than 2 KB, the server stores the extended description as a file. This element specifies the URI of that file.

 


The <link> and <summary> elements are in the Atom namespace.
