Modes

ActionIcon Description

This node is included as a child of General and ParallelTransaction nodes. In it, it is possible to configure how standard actions will be treated in the corresponding General or ParallelTransaction interface.

The developer may choose to disable some of the standard actions in design time, or include conditions that will determine the presence of the action in runtime.

Note that these conditions are not to be used as a security mechanism, but as a usability improvement for the end user. Even with these conditions in place, if the user acceses the transaction directly in one of its modes, the condition will not be evaluated and the user will be able to perform the operation.

To disable a transaction completely use the K2BTools security mechanism.

Runtime appearance

The effect of using this node are visible in the generated interface in the actions that are presented to the user. By default, all actions are visible, in the following example, the update action is disabled.
