Common Layout Item Properties

Updated 10 months ago by Steven Garand

One or more items must be selected before setting their common properties. Click the 'Select Group' button on and mouse drag select the item or items.
Select all desired items before changing their common properties to apply the properties to all selected items at the same time.
If items are overlapped, the most recently added item will appear on top. To move underlying items to the top, export them as a selection, delete them, then import them.

  3. Color: Used to either show a user can edit an item or to allow the background image to show through the item.

  4. Border: Used to shows a border around or line under an item.
    1. sides: Displays a border around the item.
    2. bottom: Displays a line under the item. Typically used with text boxes if no background image lines used.

  6. Group: Do not use. Used on layout order forms only to indicate a grouped item.
  7. Data: Determines how the data is connected to the database.
    1. none: No connection to the database.
    2. equip: Do not use. Used on layout order forms only.
    3. database: Connected to a database value. The connection details are determined by the information entered in the 'Set Database Link Info' window shown when the 'Edit Database Type' button is clicked.
  8. Edit database type button: Opens the 'Set Database Link Info' window to allow setting the database connection details.
    1. Menu Buttons
      1. OK: Saves the link information and closes the window.
      2. Cancel: Does not save the link changes and closes the window.
      3. New Row: Adds a new database link. There must be at least one database link. Editable items must have only one link. Multiple links can be used to calculate a composite read only value for the item. For instance a link to a city, and another link to a state. A specified delimiter specifies the characters to separate multi link values. In this example a comma could be specified resulting in the city followed by the state and separated by a comma.
      4. Delete Row: Deletes a database link.
      5. Add Filter: Only used with a Link Type of 'orderLevel'. An order level link is a user defined database connection name for an order. If the link type is 'orderLevel', any previously user defined database connection names actually entered on any form are listed in the Filter column of the grid. If the name is not listed in the Filter grid column, click on the 'Add Filter' button and enter the missing name when prompted. Make sure to use a unique descriptive name that fully identifies the data it will hold. Failure to do this might result in data corruption. A good name would be HandStrenghtOnMyCustomEvalForm instead of HandStrength. The entered name should now appear as an option in the Filter grid column.
