Once you define your basic layout and styling, you can drag and drop the following form palette elements onto your form:
You can also modify the default toolbar and create custom transition controls. Refer to the following sections for details.
The figure below shows an example of the default toolbar controls for a form in Serena Work Center.
You can customize the tool bar on custom forms for primary and auxiliary tables. For example, you can remove the Add Item Link item from the Actions drop-down list and instead map that action to a clickable image on the form. You can make individual information and actions only available on certain forms, or remove the tool bar, button bar, or action bar entirely.
You can add custom transition controls to custom forms for primary and auxiliary tables. Custom transition controls can be used in addition to the standard transition buttons in the button bar at the top of the form. For example, you might want to put a custom transition button in the middle of a form, so the user can click it without having to scroll to the top of the form, but want to keep the standard button for that transition in the button bar.
A custom transition control can also be used instead of a button in the button bar. For example, you might have a state with two outgoing transitions, Get Info from Submitter and Begin Work. You could keep the button for the Begin Work transition in the button bar, but remove the Get Info from Submitter button from the button bar and instead add a custom button for it on the other side of the form, separate from the button bar.
