Setting Dialog Control Properties

IN THIS PAGE

Description

Select each control in the Control Types list to display its Control Properties menu. There are many optional properties for each control. The default values for these properties produce a useable starting configuration for your dialog. This means that you can largely ignore these optional properties when you are learning to build dialogs or you expect to gradually refine your design in later revisions. A dialog component has few requirements. You are free to add and format controls (of any type) as you wish. The ((|#Data_Type|Data Type)) setting informs the page how to validate input to a control. It does not affect the type of data generated by a control, which is always "character" data.

Select the Control Type 

The types of controls that you can place on a dialog are:

  • ((|#AdvancedButton_Properties|Advanced button)) - a free form button that can set a variable's value or run a script

  • Blurb - a static text control that does not have a heading

  • ((|#Calendar_Properties|Calendar)) a monthly calendar

  • ((|#CheckBox_Properties|Check box)) - allowing a selection from a list of values

  • ((|#Custom_Control_Properties|Custom)) - allows you to define the content of the dialog cell with Xbasic and HTML

  • ((|#DropDownBox_Properties|Drop Down Box)) - a list box that may appear as a list or combo box, and allowing a selection from a list of values, which is often retrieved from a table

  • Heading - a static text control without a heading that spans the width of the dialog

  • ((|#Hidden_Control_Properties|Hidden)) - a mechanism for creating and storing variables in the dialog component

  • ((|#Label_Properties1|Label)) - a read-only control suitable for character, numeric, and date/time data

  • ((|#Image_Properties|Image)) - displaying either embedded or linked images

  • ((|#Link_Properties|Link)) - a hyperlink, which may open another page or select a record to display

  • ((|#Lookup_Properties|Lookup)) - a variation on a textbox or textarea control that retrieves one or more field values from a grid

  • ((|#RadioButton_Properties|Radio button)) - allowing a selection from a list of values

  • ((|#Tab_Control_and_Tab_Pane_Properties|Tab Control)) - a control that allows you to selectively display and hide other controls

  • ((|#TextArea_Properties|Text area)) - similar to a text box, but with multiple lines

  • ((|#TextBox_Properties|Text box)) - an editable control suitable for character, numeric, and date/time data

Purpose
Action
Date field

To create a control appropriate for s a date, set the control type to "textbox" and then modify Date picker properties.

Image or image reference field

To display a picture, set the control type to "Image".

True/False choice

Set the control type of the field to check box and define its Choice properties.

Short list of choices

Set the control type of the field to radio button and define its Choice properties. Choices can be static or dynamic (retrieved from a table).

Long list of choices

Set the control type of the field to drop down list box and define its Choice properties. Choices can be static or dynamic (retrieved from a table).

Select the appropriate display format 

An In-Line style overrides the formatting of the cascading style sheet. If you wanted the text to be bolded, or in a different font, point size, or color, this is where you would define the formatting. You may also want to define validation rules to improve the quality of user input. You may want to allow only certain users to see a field. To do this set a minimum user security level required before the field will display.
