Note: Make sure that HTML Document Type property is set to HTML 5.
- Create a Transaction, and apply the Work With Pattern to it : Apply Pattern -> Work With for Web.
As a result of these configuration settings, web transaction default forms, Work With Pattern instances, and prompts, will use the Abstract layout.
The form of a web panel generated by the Work With Pattern will look as follows:

- Rebuild the application.
- Then, run the application!
At runtime, it looks as shown below. Note that label controls automatically change their position in order to adapt to the size of the screen.
