Textblock (Dynamic Layout Definition)

TextblockIcon Description

This node defines a textblock in a Dynamic Layout’s metadata. When a textblock is included a button will be added to the object’s form, initially in the “Unused Items” section.


The developer may move or copy the textblock included in the “Unused Items” section to the “User Region”, where it will be taken into account when generating panels based on the layout.

When using the SD generator, the “User Region” may include more than one copy of this textblock. To do this, simply add an “Textblock” control from the Toolbar and select the corresponding “Control Name” (which should be set to “Textblock_{Name}”).

When using the dynamic layout, all occurences of the textblock in the layout will be replaced with its final values. Only the “Caption”, and “Control Name” properties will be updated. All other properties will remain as defined in the layout object, so the developer can choose any value for them.


Category Name Value
General Name (Id) Identifier for this Textblock. Must be unique inside the layout’s metadata.
