Child Elements

 

Element Description

<labels> (FormXml)

Contains form label definitions.

<control> (FormXml)

Specifies the control to display within a form cell.

<events> (FormXml)

Contains all the event definitions for a cell or form.

Parent Elements

 

Element Description

<row> (FormXml)

Specifies a row used to organize form elements.

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.

The auto attribute is not used. If you want the control in the cell to expand to use all the available space, set the height attribute of the parent row element to auto.

If the rowspan is greater than 1, the number of row elements within the rows element must be equal to or greater than the value of the rowspan attribute.

The ispreviewcell attribute can be used to define dashboard templates. This attribute is not valid for forms.
