Create a form template

  1. Navigate to User interface > Form templates.

    The Form templates page appears.

  2. Click New.

    The New form template dialog box is displayed.

  3. Enter a Name for the form template.
  4. The Category of the form template defaults to your working category. However, you can change the category that the form template should be associated with.
  5. To include the touch related controls and properties for a form template, select Touch enhanced. (Default: Clear. It implies that the template will be created for the non-touch forms.)
  6. By default, the width mode set in the system settings is displayed for the form template. To change the default setting, select either option for Width mode:
    • Fixed: Accept the default width (1300px) or specify the required width in the Width field.
    • Percentage: Set the width in percentage (default: 100%) to display the form template relative to the browser window.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Click Yes in the confirmation message.

    A blank template opens.

    • A form template only supports one column.

    • The controls in the Toolbox are available based on the Touch enhanced setting.

    • The Column control, Mobile capture, and Mobile bar code capture controls are not available for form templates.

    • You can also specify the Width mode on the Properties panel of a form template. Change the Width as per the configured Width mode setting.

    • For a form template in which the Touch enhanced option is enabled, the Design width and Height are set as per the tablet settings, otherwise the Design width and Height are set as per the desktop settings.

  9. Add rows, cells, controls, actions, events, and resources as needed and define the following general properties and settings:


    • Name
