Panel Attributes

Learn to edit the panel attributes.

To change the settings of a panel, click on the panel's header. Use the Panel Editor on the right part of the screen to edit the panel's attributes:

  • Label: The text displayed on the tab/as header of the group. The texts are saved in the net_configtab_text text group. For further details, see Texts. Group names are only visible if more than one group exists.
  • Name: The name of the panel (i.e. the panel's ID).

    In the panel list Label and Name are displayed in each panel's header.

  • Display as Group: Checked for groups, unchecked for tabs. Check this option to create a group.

    Nested panels are always displayed as groups.

    In the panel list tabs are indicated by the , groups by the icon.

  • Add Fields to Panel: When creating a group from a tab, enter the panel to which the content of this tab is to be appended. The fields of the tab are appended at the end of the tab/group.

    If you don't specify a panel, the fields are appended at the end of the first panel.

  • CRM Processes: Assign one or more CRM processes to the panel. For further details, see Roles & CRM Processes.

You can specify additional attributes by clicking (Add) and entering a name and value. Available attributes:


Defines the initial state of group panels in a Details control. If set to true the group is initially displayed in collapsed state. This setting is overruled by the user's settings.

This setting is ignored for tab panels but is applied as soon as the user changes a tab panel to a group panel via drag&drop.


Defines the default number of columns for the selected panel. Label and text of a field count as one column.

Default = 2


If set to true, field names are displayed above the fields in one column instead of displaying them in front of the fields.


If set to true, the tab order is set to vertical (top to bottom) instead of the standard left to right tab order.

Note: You can define the columns, labelsAboveFields and verticalTabbing attributes for the entire control and for specific panels. The panel attribute overrules the control attribute. For further details, see Control Attributes
