Overview of Layout Tools
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/View/Layout/Overview of Layout Tools.xml
Layouts are the primary means by which data is entered, viewed, and printed in Alpha Anywhere. There are five different kinds of layouts: Forms, Browses, Reports, Letters, and Labels. Layouts let you display and edit data. Form Layout:
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.
Specifying the Layout Filter
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/View/Layout/Specifying the Layout Filter.xml
When using the Report, Label and Letter layout editors, you can click the Select Records icon on the toolbar to specify the filter and order expression to select the records to be printed.
Recent Layout Menu
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/View/Layout/Recent Layout Menu.xml
In a large application with many Forms, Reports, Labels, etc. it can be time consuming to find the Layout that you last edited in the list of Layouts. Now, every time you edit a Layout, Alpha Five automatically adds the Layout to a 'Recent' menu. You can right click on the white-space in the Control Panel, or on a Layout name to bring up the 'Recent' menu. In the screenshot below you can see that the 'Products' Form was the most recently edited Form, and prior to that, the 'Edit_Customer_Info' Form had been edited.
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.
