Working with Managed Form Table

A form may contain table(s) intended to view a dynamic list with multiple columns. The assortment of columns is determined by the purpose of the specific form while rows represent data viewed in the list and in some cases available for editing.

Viewing Table Rows

You can use your mouse and keyboard to view the list of table rows. To navigate table rows and cells and scroll them, follow standard MS Windows procedures.

For convenience, you can resize column width by dragging separator between column titles. To do so, point your mouse at the right column border. The cursor will change into . Drag the border to the left or to the right. When you resize a selected column, the columns to the right from it will be resized as well. If you press Ctrl while resizing a column, only the width of this column will change.

If column width does not allow to see the entire field content, you can view it by doing as follows. Locate the mouse pointer above the required column in the row you need and wait a little. In one or two seconds the entire field content will be displayed near the pointer.

Point your mouse to the column header, left-click it and drag the column to a new location. In some forms columns are arranged in such a manner that column values in every row are displayed in multiple levels (two or more). This allows to simultaneously display large volumes of information in a row without horizontal scrolling.

When you view a table, you can reorder the columns. To do so, use list setup.

The settings may provide for conditional appearance. In this case the data that meet certain specified conditions will be displayed in compliance with the conditional appearance settings. For example, a special font, font or background color may be used to highlight text in a cell or in a row. If color is used for conditional appearance, the color of current cell (the one with the cursor) or the row will differ from that of normal data that don't meet the specified conditions. For example, if the text was red (for a product that is out of stock), it will be displayed as bright red when the cell is highlighted.

If a table contains data of a tabular section (e.g. for a Product Sale document it is the list of sold products while for the Contacts catalog it is family members) and the data may be changed in the table directly, to add a new item it is possible to press Ins or press Down Arrow in the end of the list. If a new row does not have data entered yet, it is possible to simply navigate to another row to cancel input (Up Arrow or Esc).
To remove the entered row, press Del. The row will be removed without a confirmation request. Alt+Shift+Del makes it possible to delete even an edited row.
For navigation in a table use PgUp and PgDn (page flip), Ctrl+Home and Ctrl+End (navigation to the beginning or to the end of the table).

Working with the clipboard

When you work with a table, the value in the current cell can be remembered as a clipboard row using standard procedure.
