# Input Text Boxes

ImHex contains a number of different input text boxes that expect different input. This page describes their functionality.

Input fields as seen in ImHex

**Mathematical Input**

This field expects some sort of mathematical expression such as

`-1234.5`

or `0xABCD`

or`5 + 7`

or `log(e) / 2`

.Important to note is, when trying to enter a hexadecimal value into these fields, the value

**must**be prefixed with`0x`

.

**Numerical Input**

This field expects a numerical value. This can either be a floating point number, a decimal number, or a hexadecimal number.

**Binary Pattern Input**

This field expects a binary pattern string in the form of

`0F ?? A?`

. The characters 0 to 9 and A to F specify the fixed value of that nibble while question marks specify a wildcard value. For more information on this, check the Binary Pattern page.

**Regex Input**

This field expects a regex-formatted input string. For more information on this, check the Regex cheatsheet.

**Text Input**

This field expects any valid UTF-8 string and doesn't expect any special formatting.

Sliders can be modified by simply sliding around the drag bar or by CTRL-Clicking on it and using it as a regular input text box.
