With WEBCON BPS, you can color the background of the item list form field. This functionality can facilitate data interpretation and increase transparency when presenting a lot of data.
This article will present the available options for coloring the background of the item list.
Go to the coloring settings, open the item list form field, and then go to the advanced settings. After switching to the "Layout" tab, you will see available options for coloring rows under the Color mode. You can choose from three color modes:
• for the entire row,
• for selected columns,
• defined in the query.
WEBCON BPS compact forms adapt the application's main form to work on mobile devices and small screens. The compact appearance may differ from the main form in the layout, order of the fields, and other aspects. When you create an application with the main form on the WEBCON BPS platform, the system automatically creates its compact version. It can be used after pressing the Save button.
WEBCON BPS 2020 uses compact forms on mobile devices and in the element preview window.
This article describes compact forms and how to customize them.
The WEBCON BPS program allows you to build advanced form templates. One of the features that can be especially useful is showing or hiding form fields depending on the value of another form field. For example, you can decide that some fields won’t be shown on the form unless the user checks a field that makes them visible. Thanks to this feature, you can make your form more readable and easier to use by hiding groups of form fields (or single form fields) that don’t need to be immediately visible.
Read this article to learn how to hide a group of form fields based on the value of one of the forms fields.
In WEBCON BPS, your forms can be ergonomic and comfortable to read, no matter how big they are. It is possible thanks to the feature that allows you to organize your form fields into groups and configure how they work and what they look like. To create a new group, open WEBCON BPS Designer Studio, go to the form fields, right-click on them, and choose "New group." Alternatively, left-click on Form Fields and choose a "New group" from the right menu. Once a group has been created, you can drag form fields and drop them on the group icon to add them to the group. Then, inside the group, you can order form fields by dragging and dropping them into their desired position. Please note that you can't move form fields outside of the process in which they were created.
The form menu in WEBCON BPS allows you to define additional options available at the top of the form of a given application. Except for standard options such as “New”, “Save”, “Refresh” or “Delete”, you can also control the workflow paths directly from here. This article describes how to configure the application and add a list of available paths in the form menu. By default, buttons used to change the workflow steps are located at the bottom of the form. When forms are complex with many different form fields, it is often necessary to scroll to the bottom of the form to go to the path buttons. A good solution is to add a list of the available paths in the form menu.
The form is the basic element of the workflow process. Thanks to it, users have insight to information included in attributes or attachments, they work on them entering new information/ modifying previous ones. For users to communicate with the system, they need to get a suitable interface. This article shows the concept of “Field matrix” – a mechanism responsible for presentation of data from the system. In the second part, information about detailed Form field configuration was attached and configuration of over saving of matrix configuration was discussed. The ability of managing the visibility, editability and requiredness of form fields in WEBCON BPS has been provided to cover the possible business needs of the form. The matrix of form fields and functionalities available on the described tabs enable the advanced configuration and dynamic forms.
In WEBCON BPS you have the ability of changing the format of displayed form fields – “Date and time” and “Floating-point number” type. The format of displaying these fields also depends on the browser time zone settings and the selected WEBCON BPS system language. The format of displayed data also depends on the WEBCON BPS portal language. Remember that the impact of browser and portal settings on the format of the displayed data applies only to the actual date fields. When the field is only text completed e.g. by a business rule using the SQL query – the format will be transferred through the configuration of this rule.
