1. Basic information
1.1. Description of the control
1.2. Create a new control
1.3. Edit or delete a control
- For each existing control, a pencil icon appears on the left side of the edit form to change or delete the control's settings.
- Individual controls can be moved vertically in the edit form using the Drag&Drop method. Moving consists of grabbing the control, preferably behind its name located in the left column of the edit form, and then dragging it to the desired position in the edit form.
- For security reasons, it is important to have the function of moving controls enabled using the “Drag&Drop” check box located above the toolbar with controls. This field is unchecked each time you log in to the application.

- A detailed description of the variables is given in a separate manual “Variables”.
- A detailed description of the server functions is given in the separate “Server Functions” manual.
2.2. “Help” tab
2.3. “Rights” tab
- Rights define a list of user groups and users who have permission to view the control on the edit form.
2.3.2. Replace rights to other controls
- The “Replace rights to other controls” function is used to unify the rights within the entire edit form for controls that are related in terms of rights.
- Thanks to the “Show…” link, it is possible to display a list of all controls in the edit form, including setting the rights of these controls. For each control, a check box is displayed that allows you to select the control. When you save a control, the same rights are then set for those selected controls.
- An alternative for unifying rights within the entire edit form is to display the report available from the “Subordinate object rights” tab in the edit form settings.
2.4. “Administration” tab
- The “Administration” tab is only displayed for existing controls.
- Dictionary search is used to design the correct form of user messages and to maintain the consistency of nomenclature throughout the application.
