Using General HTML Editor Layout Object

Objective

There are cases in which developers want to change the disposition of elements inside General objects generated by K2BEntityServices. For this purpose K2BTools has a default layout that can be modified by the user. Using this object the developer can change how all General objects are generated. The developer can also create a copy of the object to change how some objects are generated.

This page shows how to modify the Layout Object used in the generation of Web Forms when the HTML generator is used.

How it works

In General nodes there is a property named "Layout Object". Its default value is "GeneralLayoutModern". You can edit the "GeneralLayoutModern" object or create a new web panel and set it as the "Layout Object".

Customizing Layout Objects

In order to customize the layout object, you must know which components K2BTools expects to be in the Web Panel.
