The image cell is a child definition to a field
with an edit type of image. The image cell definition represents
a cell for the parent image field. A cell definition can define
an action to execute or a value to assign to the field’s target
property when the cell is selected. Actions may be executed from
detail screens for objects. Values may be assigned to properties
from detail screens for transactions or fetches.
allows for a single image cell to be edited within the image, or
to edit multiple cell images at the same time. This is accomplished
using the layout view for the image field. The grid will overlay
the defined image in this view, and the cells may be selected and
edited via right-clicking a cell. Multiple cells may be selected
using Ctrl+Click. A single cell can be defined

be defined to be the same as that cell. This allows for multiple
cells to be combined to define a region of the image, based on its
