Visual Editor - Page Elements

 

All changes that user has done on the previous steps are immediately reflected on the Visual Editor page. According to these changes the number of elements on the page may differ. Let's consider the possible types of the elements.

List page:

visual_editor_2-1

Add/Edit page:

visual_editor_2-2

1. Header. The special element on which place the header of your pages may be inserted. By default there is no header. To add/edit header double-click the header element or select Header from the Tables list panel at Visual Editor page.

  You can add your custom ASP code to the header. For example:

<%

  Response.Write "Logged in as: " & Session("UserID")

%>

2. Master table info. The special element on which place information about the master table may be inserted. For that user should set the corresponding master-detail settings on the Datasource Tables page.
3. User message. The special element on which place a message may be inserted. It is allowed to add a message only to some pages where users may need to get some notification, e.g. notify a user about unsuccessful login.

To insert the message, go to the Events page, select an event with message parameter in the function definition (e.g. Login page: Before login event, Add page: Before record added event etc.) and add the following code:

message="Type your message here!"

yellowbulbNote: The message will be displayed on the web page in place of "message" element.

4. Fields. Each field selected on the Choose Fields page is presented on the web page by corresponding element and user is able to control its appearance with the help of "View as" or "Edit as" settings. You can set width and height of any field on Add/Edit pages simply dragging it's edge. On List/Print pages you can resize column width.

5. Pagination. The special element that provides for the numbering of pages. It gives users the ability to step through a large number of database rows in manageable chunks instead of the whole lot in one go.
6. Message. The special element on which place a system message is displayed (e.g. "No records found").
7. ASP code snippet. The special element on which place custom ASP code may be inserted. For more information, see Adding ASP code snippet topic.
8. Footer. The special element on which place the footer of your pages may be inserted. By default there is no footer. To add/edit footer double-click the footer element or select Footer from the Tables list panel at Visual Editor page.

  You can add your custom ASP code to the footer. For example:

<%

  Response.Write "Logged in as: " & Session("UserID")

%>

9. Map. The special element on which place the Google map is displayed. For more information, see Insert Google Map.
10. TabGroup. The special element on which place the Tab is displayed on the Add/Edit/View pages. For more information about ordering fields using tabs, see Fields order and totals.
11. Section. The special element on which place the Section is displayed on the Add/Edit/View pages. For more information about ordering fields using folding sections, see Fields order and totals.
12. CAPTCHA. The special element on which place the CAPTCHA test is displayed. For more information, see Adding CAPTCHA.
13. LegendBreak. If you have any required field on the Add/Edit page, the message '*  - Required fields' is displayed on the place of LegendBreak element. Otherwise, this message is not displayed.

Sometimes users need to go back to previous steps to make new changes after they have changed the initial view of the page. In this case after repeating return to the Visual Editor page an alert window will appear with the suggestion to reset the page.
