Determines the default Web form to be generated (Web Abstract Editor or HTML editor).


Responsive Web Design The object's form will be generated using the Web Abstract Editor. As a result, the design will be responsive.
Previous versions compatible The object's form will be generated using the HTML Editor. This is the default value.


Objects: Transaction
Generators: .NET, .NET Framework, Java
Level: Work With for Web Pattern Instance


When there are Transaction forms and objects automatically generated by the Work With for Web pattern, you can decide whether the web form is going to be initialized using the HTML Editor or the Web Abstract Editor. If the initialization is done using the last, the resulting design will be responsive.

The property at the Transaction level and at Work With Pattern instance level inherit their values from the value set at the version level. This value can be changed for each Transaction and Pattern instance.
