Application Options

The Application tab on the Composer Options is divided into sub-tabs. Options are discussed in the following sections.

Form Options

Element Description
Editor Specify preferences for behavior in the form editor:
  • Show insertion point during drag-and-drop operation even when invalid
  • Show cell handles when control is selected
  • Preserve form zoom level and position
New form Size Guide default settings Specify default settings for the size of new forms. The values you specify are displayed in the Property Editor for the new form.
Preview Select the Enable JavaScripts check box to specify whether JavaScripts that are included in forms are executed or suppressed during form preview. By default, this check box is selected.
Note: Some scripts are too complex to show during form preview; you can override this setting for individual forms on the Form Preview Dialog Box.
Enable HTML5 features Select the Enable HTML5 features option to enable advanced HTML features. For example, this check box enables or disable the Rich Text Editor for formatting default values for Text fields. Choose to preview the form in the SBM User Workspace (Classic) or Work Center.

This setting also determines the appearance of preview mode for the "Classic" style. When this check box is selected, form preview uses a modern theme. When this check box is cleared, form preview uses a legacy theme.

External Forms Specify whether new custom forms can be based on tables that are in another application in the same process app or in a referenced application in another process app.

HTML and Script Options

Element Description
Font Specify the name and size of the font used in the Javascript editor and Script editor, in the Message Detail dialog box in the Common Log Viewer, and in the Content tab of some form widgets (for example, the HTML/JavaScript and Google Gadget widgets).
Syntax Highlighting The current color and font style of the syntax elements are shown in the Preview box. If these values have never been changed, or if default values were restored, the default color and font style are shown.
  • To change the syntax highlighting, select a syntax element and adjust the color and font style. The changes you make are immediately reflected in the Preview box.
  • If you change your mind, click Restore selected style to default to change the selected syntax element back to the default color and font style, or click Restore all styles to default to change all syntax elements back to the default color and font style.

Table Options

  • Immediately rename new fields
Warnings Specify preferences for warnings related to tables:
  • Warn when allowing selection by group for Multi-User fields

Workflow Options

Event Options
