The TextBoxMode enumeration represents the different display options for TextBox controls.

SingleLine mode displays the TextBox control as a single row. If the user enters text that exceeds the physical size of the TextBox control, the text will scroll horizontally.

MultiLine mode displays the height of the TextBox based on the Rows property, and allows data entry on multiple lines. The text will automatically wrap if the TextBox.Wrap property is set to true. If the user enters text that exceeds the physical size of the TextBox, the text will scroll accordingly and scroll bars will appear.

The behavior of Password mode is similar to SingleLine mode except that all characters entered in the TextBox control are masked and are not saved in view state.

The remaining options correspond to type attribute values for the input element in the HTML5 specification.
