Using Screen Designer

The available fields and elements in Screen Designer are contained in panes located by default on the right side of the Screen Designer interface. Depending on the project and object type, the following types of items will be available for your custom block:

  • System Fields
  • Custom Fields
  • Elements (including Advanced Elements, HTML Elements, and JSP Elements)
  • Reports
  • Wizard Parameters
  • Java Classes

Click on the corresponding pane tab to see the list of available fields or elements of that type.

The general process for adding, moving, and deleting fields or elements of any type is described below. For more information on specific types of elements or fields, see System Fields and Custom Fields and Elements and Reports. For more information on properties and adding further functionality to your custom blocks, see Editing Properties and Interactions.
