Adding a dependency control

The dependency control is added to a summary form for the each applicable item type. For each dependency control, you need to create a custom summary form for the Dependency Creation dialog; essentially, this dialog is the user interface that is presented to users when they are adding a dependency to the grid.

To add a dependency control

  1. From the top-level navigation, open the Admin module.
  2. Select Customization.
  3. Select the View Designer tab.
  4. Under View Layout, select the item type, its associated view, and the form on which the dependency will appear.
  5. Under Controls, click and drag the Investment Dependency control to the layout pane. Size and position the control as necessary.
  6. Under Properties, click the button for the Configuration attribute to open the Investment Dependency Configuration dialog box.
  7. In the Side drop-down, select Source or Target.
  8. In the Dependency Type drop-down, select the dependency type that will appear in the view. This list shows only those dependencies whose source or target includes the item type selected in the view layout.
  9. Move the attributes that you want to display in the view under Column Attributes.
  10. Click Save Save.
  11. Under View Layout, click Save Save.
