Dialog Element Types

enaio® editor 10.10 »

The following element types are available:

The element type 'Text field' is a field where the user enters values for indexing and for queries.

For text fields, you specify the type of database field and the length.

You can specify properties and set up catalogs to support the user in indexing or to make searches easier.

The text fields can be single line or multiline, and the name can be shown or not shown in the form.

Checkboxes can be selected by the user on the index data form.

The associated database field is predefined: the type is 'small integer', the length is '1'.

The hit list in enaio® client has the default value Yes for selected and No for not selected.

You can edit this default via the properties window.

The user can use the radio buttons to choose exactly one option from those available.

The individual options are set up as separate dialog elements. The associated database field is predefined: the type is 'small integer', the length is '1'.

In order to assign radio buttons to each other they have to be created within a group field. First, you create a group field and then you insert the radio buttons into the group field one after the other.

In the hit list of enaio® client the name of the group field will be used as the column name and the name of the selected radio button will be displayed as the value.

Group fields are used to visually combine other fields into one frame so that large indexing and search forms remain uncluttered. They have no assigned database field.

Group fields are also used to assign radio buttons to each other.

With the element type 'Image' you can attach images to a form. Images do not have an assigned database field.

Images have to be available in PNG or bitmap format (*.bmp).

The element type 'Static text' is also a dialog element which is only used for configuring the form. There is no associated database field. You use it to place text at any location in the form.

Users can execute 'events' using the buttons. 'Events' are designed specifically for you by OPTIMAL SYSTEMS or are created using enaio® editor-for-events.

On an index data form you can manage the information in tables. You specify the number of columns for the table and assign a database type and database length for every column.

The element type 'Page control' is used for configuring the form. This allows you to combine tabs and other dialog elements in a clear manner.

On a tab of the element type 'Page control' you can create a maximum of 240 dialog elements; however, no further elements of the type 'Page control'.

You can place windows on an index data form in which URLs are displayed.

You can enter a URL for the following contexts:

create, edit indexing, query, and view.

Scripts can be used to display document files or previews, too.

The rights group control opens a dialog, from which users and user groups can be selected.
