DelayIf "Send on Delay" is true, then the value in the text input will be send after this (ms) delay.
Send On "Focus Leave"Sends a msg when the text input loses focus. Will only send if the value has changed from the last msg sent
Send On "Press Enter"Sends a msg when the user presses the enter key. Will always send, even if the value has not changed.

Dynamic Properties

Dynamic properties are those that can be overriden at runtime by sending a particular msg to the node.

Where appropriate, the underlying values set within Node-RED will be overriden by the values set in the received messages.
