This section configures the input form it will be shown for users to introduce new records or to edit a single record. You can freely use the html editor in order to build a custom layout for your form. At the place you want to show an input field, you need to write ##yourfieldame##, or, drag&drop your fields from the left panel into the html editor.

If you prefer to configure the layout automatically, just click on the top menu buttons to build a 1,2 or 3 column layout automatically using bootstrap 5 library.

Pagination

At this page you can set up the number of pages to be shown at the pager widget, the elements to be shown at the combobox to switch the number of records to be shown at the page (you can set an option with value '0' that will show 'All' elements), and the number of records per page to be shown by default. Don't forget to add the pager widget to your final front-end configuration (check table front-end view settings section below)

  • Text: a free input text for users to type in their search

Table front-end view (Data layout)

The front end view is highly customizable using the widgets you have previously created, and the dynamic toolbars you can add to your front-end view.

You will have the 'Table' section, that you can move around across the different sections, that is placed by default at the center of the page.

Then you can add as many toolbars as needed at the different sections (top,left,middle, right or bottom), and finally you will add your widgets and all the elements (like buttons, options, etc) to any of these toolbars.

The widgets you can add to the toolbars are:

  • Filters: the ones configured at the 'Filters' configuration explained in previous section
  • Pager
  • Items per page
  • Search
  • New
  • Delete
  • Edit
  • Bulk update
  • Export PDF
  • Export PDF Filtered
  • Export Excel
  • Export Excel Filtered
  • Detail
  • Export Detail
  • Apply Filter
  • Clear Filter

Just drag and drop the different widgets from the 'options' catalog inside the desired position of the layout. You can move around the elements inside the toolbar if you want to reorder your widgets afterwards.

Detail layout

If you configure your list to show a detailed view of each record when selected, here you will need to set up the layout of this view.
