AttributesIcon Description

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.

Runtime appearance

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".
