The Edit control defines the contents of the Edit view when creating new records (Edit control in New mode) and when updating existing records (Edit control in Update mode).
If no Edit control is defined for an info area, the Details control is used as a fallback.
You can define the following:
The header text "Edit Details" uses text no. 1 from text group Details_core.
You can group the fields on the control by defining group panels (), >> Panels.
The panel's Label is displayed as sub-heading for the group, e.g. "General Information", "Company Details", etc.
Add fields and set their attributes as in Aurea CRM web, >> Customizing a Control in the Aurea CRM web Administrator Guide.
When using hierarchical catalogs, ensure that both the parent and child catalog fields to the control were added. Users need to save the record before being able to select a value from a child catalog.
For detailed information on all available input controls used for the different field types (Boolean, catalog, date, etc.). For more information on input types, see the article “How To configure expand edit mode” at https://support.aurea.com.
Combined fields are displayed separately in Edit mode.
Z-fields without a Select-Function are automatically hidden in Edit mode.
The Edit control is used when you assign the following actions:
If no Edit control was defined and the Details control is used as fallback, the following restrictions apply:
PARENT & MAP panel types are not available.
CHILDREN panel type is not available. If the Details control is used, these child panels are removed.
Images cannot be displayed for Document fields.
Fields that were set to Readonly in the Details control cannot be edited. Link fields are automatically read-only.
If the ColSpan field argument was defined: If the field can be edited, at present only the first field is displayed. Only if a date field is followed by a time field, these two fields can be combined and only one edit field is displayed.
ColSpan can also be used for dependent catalogs where the parent and the child value can be selected in one control.
If fields are set to ReadOnly, ColSpan behaves exactly the same way as in the Details control, >> Combining Field Values.
