Text Block Edition
Objects: Web Panels, Transactions
The in-line text block edition is disabled and a new option in the contextual Menu is added to modify it.
The text modification associated to a Text Block was done directly in the form.
From now on, the text blocks cannot be edited directly in the form, they are read-only and have to be modified using the Properties option of the right button contextual Menu.
Historically, the edition in-line of text blocks caused several problems at design and runtime.
Besides, several modifications done in the text (such as font, fill, color) were not taken into account in runtime.
Disabling the edition in-line the following benefits are obtained:
- Simplicity: The modification of the propierties of the text block is done through the associated properties.
- Uniformity: The modification of text block properties in done in the standard way (Right Click --> Properties).
- Funcionality: the no edition of text blocks automates the translation of texts.
- Minimize Errors: no modifications are allowed to be done in the Form, minimizing possible problems.
