About the Visual Designer Text Field

This component corresponds to a standard text field on a form. It uses the following input properties:

  • FieldName (required): This string links the Form Template Part to a Field in the form's entity. For this input property, replace the <Required> default with Name of an Entity Field that meets the requirements for a standard text field. See Standard Text Field for more information.
  • ShowLabel (required): When set to 1, the specified LabelCaption appears on the form. When set to 0, the LabelCaption does not appear. This input property defaults to 1.
  • LabelCaption: This string specifies an optional caption that can appear on the form to the left of the field.
  • FontName: This string specifies the font used for the caption and the field value. It defaults to Tahoma.
  • LabelWidth (required): This property specifies the width of the LabelCaption in pixels. A typical LabelWidth in Aptify is between 79 and 99 pixels.
  • ExtendedType: If the entity field supports an extended attribute (such as Email or Repository Object), specify the appropriate extended type for this property to enable the extra functionality for this field. See Extended Attribute Fields on and Extended Type for more information on the support Extended Types.
  • DisableGeDataTransfer: This is an advanced setting for forms that include a layout control. In Aptify 6.0, this input property is updated so that when it is set to 1, the component value comes from the bound control, and when it is set to 1, the component is updated from the generic entity or is it refreshed from another data access method. The default value is 0.
  • LabelCaptionCultureString: This string specifies the culture string that can be used to localize the field's label (if applicable). For this input property, specify the base string for the applicable Culture String record. See Working with Culture Strings for more details.
  • CharacterCasing: This property determines how the characters are cased. When set to 1, as the user enters text within the field, the characters are converted to uppercase and remain uppercase when the record is saved. When set to 0 (the default value), the case of the characters are left unchanged.
