When using /did -a on a box control in a dialog, it does not append, it simply replaces/overwrites.

This is inconsistent with how -a works for others control.
The help file does not describe this difference and only documents -a as 'adding line of text at the end'.

Not an annoying bug, not preventing functionality (easy workaround is to use did -a name $did().text $+ newtext) and probably here since its implementation, so no fix required, but the help file should definitely be talking about this difference.

Code:
dialog testbox {
  size -1 -1 100 100
  box "text", 1, 5 5 90 90
}
alias testbox {
  dialog -m testbox testbox
  did -a testbox 1 text2
  echo -ag $did(testbox, 1).text
}
/testbox

Thanks for your bug report. This is indeed intentional. The -radio switches were originally added to support multi-line listbox/combox/editbox controls. Using these switches with any other controls results in default behaviour of either setting or clearing text. This has been the behaviour ever since these features were added, so unfortunately cannot be changed now.

Right, I mentioned I wasn't asking for a change in behavior, just that the help file should be updated.
