Setting Dialog Control Properties
/pages/Server/Guide/Design/Data/FieldRules/Setting Dialog Control Properties.xml
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.
Record Navigator and Grid Toolbar
/pages/Guides/Mobile and Web Components/Grid/Grid Properties/Record Navigator and Grid Toolbar/index.xml
The Record Navigator lets you design how users to move through the records shown in your application. It also lets you change the appearance of the navigation part of your grid. If you want your record navigator to take the form of a tree-control there is a section in the properties for this here. Included in the Record Navigator properties is the Help Window property. This will allow you to build Help for your application, check out this page to see more information on building a Help system.
