View page - HTML

1. Basic information

1.1. Description of the control

HTML is a control that allows you to embed any HTML code.

1.2. Create a new control

A new html can be created as follows from the preview page using the toolbar with controls:

  • First, clicking the mouse on the view page determines the position in which the new html should be placed. This will highlight the selected position with a gray horizontal line. Then just click on ” HTML” in the toolbar of the preview page, fill in the attributes of the new control in the newly opened dialog, and then save. This will insert a new html at a pre-selected location on the preview page.
  • If the required position is not determined before inserting a new html, the new html will be inserted at the end of the view page.

1.3. Edit or delete a control

  • For each existing control, a pencil icon appears to the left of the control page to change or delete the control's settings.
  • Individual controls can be moved vertically on the view page using the Drag&Drop method. Moving consists of grabbing the control, preferably behind its name, and then dragging it to the desired location on the view page.
  • 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.
