I’m curious about when someone would choose string over text as field types, or vice versa. Here:
the definitions are circular:
|string| Used to ask the user a question and allows them to enter a string.|
|text| Used to ask the user a question and allows them to enter text.|
I can google how these types are typically defined, such as here:
But, other than deducing that
text may allow formatting and such and
string seems to be a more fundamental data type (in java at least), here we are defining a data type for storage in a table.
In what contexts (or use cases) might one choose one of these prompt types over the other?
Thanks in advance,
