- Table Functions
/pages/Ref/Api/Functions/Document Types/DBF/Table Functions/index.xml
Alpha Anywhere provides the following table functions.
- Flow Layout Settings Properties
/pages/Guides/Mobile and Web Components/UX/Controls/Props/other/Form Properties/Form properties/Form Layout/FlowLayoutSettings/index.xml
Settings for defining the behavior for an item in a Flow Layout container.
- Reports with Different Left and Right Margins
/pages/Guides/Report/Design Techniques/Reports with Different Left and Right Margins.xml
It possible to format a report, so that alternate pages will have different left and right margins. This technique requires two steps:
- Table Properties
/pages/Guides/Mobile and Web Components/UX/Controls/Props/Data/List Properties/listprops/Detail View/Table Properties/index.xml
Properties available for a table.
- Number of 'Layout' Columns
/pages/Guides/Mobile and Web Components/Grid/Grid Properties/Layout Options/Number of 'Layout' Columns.xml
The Number of 'Layout' Columns property takes all the information contained in a single record and displays it across a specified number of columns.
- Default Named Layout
/pages/Guides/Mobile and Web Components/Grid/Grid Properties/Multiple Named Layouts/Default named layout.xml
The 'Default named layout' property determines what layout will be used as the default when you run your application.
- Send/Receive Individual Layout Definitions
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/View/Layout/Send and Receive Individual Layout Definitions.xml
In Alpha Anywhere, Layouts (Reports, Labels, Forms, Browses and Letters) are all stored in the data dictionary for the table or set on which the Layout is based.
In the case of a table, the data dictionary files have these extensions: .ddd, .ddm and .ddx. In the case of a set, the data dictionary files have these extensions: .set, .sem and .sex.
Because all of the Layouts for a particular table or set are stored in the same physical data dictionary files, it is difficult for a developer to send a client an individual Layout. You can easily send a client a new copy of the data dictionary (.ddd, .ddm and .ddx files in the case of a table, or .set, .sex and .sem files in the case of a set), but doing so will overwrite any Layouts that the client created, or modified.
Now, you can simply right click on any Layout and select Send Layout.
- Number of "Layout" Columns
/pages/Guides/Mobile and Web Components/Grid/The Detail View/Detail View Properties/Other Customization/numberoflayoutcolumns.xml
Set the number of logical columns to display in the layout.
- Panel Layout Properties
/pages/Guides/Mobile and Web Components/UX/Controls/Props/panel/Panel Layout Properties/index.xml
Panel Layouts are containers that can contain Panels, Panel Navigators, and even other Panel Layout containers.
The Panel Layout Properties section allows you to define how the sub-containers inside a panel layout will act.
For example, the direction that the containers will flow in, what method of animation will be used to display
panels, what buttons reveal hidden panels, and more.
- Password Protecting a Layout
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/View/Layout/PasswordProtecting a Layout.xml
If you want to ensure that only authorized users can change a layout, you can define a password for it. When a user attempts to edit a password protected layout, they must supply the password before the layout appears in the editor.
