Data Control Properties


Properties that are specific to data controls. These properties only appear when a data control is highlighted on the UX controls page.

Button List Properties

A button list is a series of buttons that can be placed horizontally or vertically on a component.

Properties for configuring the options for a CheckBox control.

Control Type

The Control type property can be used to change the type of a Data control to any other Data control type, including Add-in controls (found in the 'More...' option in the Data Controls toolbox.)

Data Binding

You can use data binding to create new tables with fields that can then be used within the UX component. This is done on the '[Data Binding]' page of the UX Builder. Once the data from a new or existing table has been bound to the component you can use the properties in this section to bind a control to one of the fields in that databound table. It is also possible to [match controls to a data bound table] on the Data Binding page itself.

If you add a calendar control or a text box with a time type (Date or Time) to your component, the Date/Time Picker properties can be used to configure the calender/time control.
