Mmmm, I didn't mean that... I referred to typing in a textbox and halfways, all I wrote dissapears and is replaced by something else.

What I wanted to say is (in a different wording) that for example a textbox that the user can or must type in text should not be a direct view of the application's data. There should be only one possible source for changes in that box, either the user or the application (and in the latter case, the box should be read-only).

I think it should be common-sense, I think my explanation was clumsy.
