Special features

Table like Formatting of Record List View

In the mobile user interface you can see a list of records and choose which one to edit. With this new feature the list of records can look like a real table. You can create a line with a fixed font size that contains several columns of the record. The result can look like the grid view of the zk interface.

  • New Features: Be able to select how to see the multi row view when you open a window and records are displayed
    • Choose between show the info Vertically or Horizontally.
    • Select the data you want to see in the multi grid view and how you want to see it.

Mobile Format Configuration

To set up the format content feature, login via WebUI or Mobile as System and go to "Window, Tab & Field" and select the window you want to format, go to the "Tab" tab and you'll see a new field (Mobile Format).


If you leave this field in blank the info will be shown as default (identifiers and selection columns). First row in bold font, second row in a normal font and from the third on a smaller one (as shown below).


If you want to choose what you see. Fill the "Mobile Format" field as follows (See the images below):

  • By default the content is shown vertically, if you want to see it horizontally write "HL=" at the beginning. If you don't do this it will display everything vertically
    • Additionally the default font style is bold. You can choose the style you want writing it after the HL tag between double quotes (eg: HL"secondary"=...). These are the style's options:
      • "primary": Bold font (just as default).
      • "secondary": Normal font.
      • "selectioncolumn": Smaller font.
  • To select the info you want to see write the column's names separated by comma (eg: ad_org_id,description,name).
    • To give a specific format to the text, write the format between '<>' after the column (eg: grandtotal<#,###.##€>).
    • To set a specific size for each field write the length between '()' (eg: description(10),grandtotal<#,###.##€>(-8))
      • Note: If you put a number > 0 it fills the string with blank spaces at the right. A number < 0 fill it with blank spaces at the left. f the string is longer it cuts its content
