Child Elements

 

Element Description

<labels> (FormXml)

Contains form label definitions.

<columns> (FormXml)

Contains the columns within a tab.

<events> (FormXml)

Contains all the event definitions for a cell or form.

Parent Elements

 

Element Description

<tabs> (FormXml)

Contains the tab definitions for a form.

If you create a new <tab> (FormXml), <section> (FormXml) or <cell> (FormXml) element by copying from an existing form definition or by manually editing an exported customization.xml file you should create a new GUID value for the id attribute. You should use a tool like guidgen.exe to guarantee a unique valid GUID value. The guidgen.exe is included as part of the Windows SDK.

If you do not specify a new GUID value for the element id, you must create a new GUID value for the labelid attribute and add the labelid attribute. If you have duplicate element id values AND do not specify a unique labelid attribute value you will not be able to uninstall your solution. To address this issue you must export the default solution containing the form definitions, edit each element in the existing forms to add a unique labelid value, and then import those modified form definitions.
