Nodes of this type can be used in panels created with K2BTools to include sections displaying variables and/or attributes.
The main scenarios for using Attributes nodes are the following:
- Viewing the result of an operation.
- Having a view of a transaction different from the transaction's display mode.
- Viewing the result of a query
- Inserting, Updating or Deleting a record using the business component.
- Selecting parameters to call a procedure or report.
It is important to distinguish between this type of node and the Grid (WPD) type. The difference lies in the fact that Attributes nodes display only one instance of the variables or attributes displayed, whereas grids show multiple instances of them.
Frequently the structure of an Attributes node is similar to the structure of a transaction. To simplify the process of creating Attributes nodes like this, the "Add Attributes From Transaction" was created.
There is no visual characteristics inherent to the Attributes node. Its appearance in runtime depends entirely on the appearance of its children. A lot of flexibility is provided when working with Attributes nodes, as they accept many types of nodes as children. For more information in this aspect, see the section "Child nodes".
||An identifier for this section. This name can be used to reference the section in the Events part.
||The string to place as this section's title.
|Layout Slot Name
Contains the name of the Attributes (Dynamic Layout Definition) node in the dynamic layout object referenced by this node.
This property is available only when this node's parent is a LayoutContent node.
||Determines where to place the variable's and attribute's descriptions on the screen, relative to them.
||Determines the alignment of the table in which the attributes and variables are placed. Note: Only available in Web Panels.
||Determines the layout of the items contained in this control according to the screen size of the device used in runtime. For more information, see Introduction to Responsive Web Design and Using Responsive Sizes Properties.
||Based On SDT
||Determines the SDT that is used in this attributes node (if any). See Using the Add SDT Action for more information.
|Based On SDT Level
||Contains the name of the SDT level that applies to this attributes node (if any).
