Tile Display

The tile display edit type displays an object instance in a tiled view. The layout and appearance of the values is defined in a separate screen set and its detail screens. This separate screen set is used by the tile display field, with its detail screens displayed within the tile display field as a tab control.

Prior to defining a field with an edit type of tile display, the separate screen set it is to display must be defined. This screen set must be defined to display the object type desired for display in the tile display field. The separate screen set can contain a single detail screen. The fields of this detail screen display the property values of the selected object type.

When the detail screen containing the tile display field is displayed on the client, the separate screen set and its detail screen are displayed within the viewable area of the tile display field. These values are read-only.

The tile display edit type does not support the following general field attributes:
  • Object Property
  • Read-only
  • Format
  • Change Focus
  • Update Rule
  • Special Value

Tile Display Attributes

The following attributes are specific to the tile display edit type. These are in addition to the common field attributes:

  • Tile Display Screen Set: This attribute specifies the screen set to display the object instance within the tile display field. This screen set can contain one detail screen. The fields of this detail screen are displayed within the tile display field. The screen set must be defined to display the object definition specified in the Tile Target attribute.
  • Tile Target: This attribute specifies the object instance targeted by the tile display field. This object instance must be of the type the Tile Display Screen Set is defined to display.
  • Modify Row Height By: This attribute specifies the rows within the screen being displayed by the Tile Display field be modified by the value set in this attribute.
  • Display Single Screen: This attribute forces the Tile Display field to display only a single screen from the selected screen set. Otherwise each screen in the screen set is displayed within the Tile Display, with a tab control displayed for each screen.
