Each page normally displays a list of records from a data table. These records can be updated by calling an update form using the "update" (3) buttons. Depending on the type of data, other tools may also be available to the user.


Example of a standard data page





1.Data filters - display records matching the selected filters
2.Data links - display related data for the selected record
3.Update buttons - call an update form to add new record or to change/delete the selected record
4.Data sort - when clicked, data fill be sorted in that column's order
5.Data search - clicking on the "search" icon enables users to enter a search value in the column heading
6.Data export - displayed data can be exported to MS Excel, MS Word, PDF or XML
7.Close the page


Example of an Update Form
