Pages - Headers

Headers are usually used to provide information about a data segment and control actions to assist with navigation or management of a data grid. the example shown here shows a header "timesheets summary" on a single entity data segment and the "..." indicates that there are header actions or navigation available. There are two tabs that need to be considered for a header:
  • Header General

  • Header Actions

Header General
The Headers General area allows you to select a header and identify it. The options in the header general area are:
  • Has Header (checkbox) - checked indicates that the selected segment has a header, unchecked means the current segment does not have a header

  • Header Text - The text that appears in the header

  • Header Text (tabbed) - The text that appears in the header when it is adapted to the "tabbed" view

  • Header Text (alternate) - The text that appears in the header when an adaptation is used to show the alternate header text

  • Has Header Actions (checkbox) - when checked the Header Actions tab will appear and and actions elypsis will be displayed in the header

  • Actions Description - the help/descriptive text that will appear in a "tooltip" that is displayed when the app user hovers over the action elypsis in the header


Headers Actions
The header Actions area is where you can define actions that are accessed via the header of this segment. There are two seperate areas of Actions:
  • System Implemented Actions

  • System implemented actions include a number of standard, single function actions that can be applied to most Segments.
    Tick Select adds an action to a list of items such that, when selected, displays an additional column (see image left) with check boxes. This allows multiple items to be selected and further actions performed on them e.g. delete all selected, etc.
    Other common actions available, that can be selected from the standard system implemented actions are:
    • New - creates a new empty Entity in the selected Data Source

    • Show New Button in header - same as New but displays a + symbol in the header next to the Elypsis

    • Delete - deletes the currently selected Entity from the selected Data Source

    • Show Delete button in header - same as Delete but displays a - symbol in the header next to the Elypsis

    • Nudge Up/Down are supported - allows for re-ordering lists - Nudge up function moves a selected item up 1 place in a list and Nudge down moves the item down 1 place.

    • (Custom) Refresh - provides a link in Visual Studio for custom table/grid/Data Source refresh if this is required.

  • Custom Actions (which include Evoke Click Actions)
