# Behave - Multiline Text

A block of text after a step enclosed in """ will be linked with that step. Here, the indentation is parsed. All the whitespaces at the beginning are removed from the text and all the succeeding lines must have at least a minimum whitespace as the starting line.

A text is accessible to the implementation Python code with the .text attribute within the context variable (passed in the step function).
