Editing an Enumeration List

Enumeration lists are used in the 1C:Enterprise system to describe permanent sets of values that do not change as the configuration is used. Unlike a catalog, the values of enumeration lists are specified at the configuration phase, and cannot be changed at the execution phase.

Typical examples of enumeration lists are payment types (cash, noncash, barter), client status (permanent, one-time), etc.

One major feature of enumeration lists that distinguishes them from catalogs is that the set of values in an enumeration list does not change as the end user works with the program. For example, a configuration algorithm can be designed so that each client has one of two statuses, either permanent or one-time; in that case, the client's status is specified by selecting one of the enumeration list values. The user cannot add a new enumeration list entry to the list.

Unlike enumeration list entries, catalog entries are normally entered by the user working with the program at run-time, for example: product description, trading partner, etc.

Editing an Enumeration List

A document is edited in an editor window. Enumeration list editing consists of creating a list of enumeration list entries, as well as list and selection forms and print layouts.

For each form you can create an enumeration list, pertaining to this particular form.
