Configuring the Location Dialog

You can configure each country record to display all or some of the above-mentioned fields, as well as the order in which they will be displayed and if they are mandatory or not.

When you are logged in with the System role in iDempiere, open the Country Region and City window and navigate to the record of the country you want to configure, for example, United States.


Capture Sequence

The Capture Sequence field represents the order in which the location values will be displayed in the dialog, to configure it just add the codes shown in the above table in the order you wish them to be shown to the users.

@A1@ @A2@ @A3@ @A4@ @A5@ @C@ @R@ @P@ @CO@ will display the following fields in the following order


If we want to show the Country, Region, and City first, hide Address 4 and Address 5, and show the comments field you can simply change the Capture sequence to:

@CO@ @R@ @C@ @A1@ @A2@ @A3@ @P@ @Com@


If you want any of the fields to be mandatory, just add a ! after the field code, f.i. @A1!@


If you want, you can show hints or extra text in the fields with the help of Placeholders.
