Advanced Designer properties features
January 17, 2014
The topics in this section describe options when using the Advanced Designer perspective.
The Advanced Designer perspective is available for users with advanced form design experience and shows additional tabs and features. These tabs and features include:
— contains additional items for form design.
— allows you enclose file resources, such as JAR files and schemas, within your form.
— allows you to define the XML template for the data that will be collected from the form.
— allows you to navigate between forms in your workspace. If you choose to change to a different form, it opens in a new tab.
— allows you to manually modify properties of individual items. The Properties tab provides you with more options than the Properties window that opens when you drop an item into the form, but some items require you to have XFDL coding knowledge.
— displays errors and warning messages to help you build a form that runs correctly. The Problems view is activated by an icon.
— allows you to view the XFDL source code for your form. If you have coding experience, you can write your form in the Source view rather than using the Design view.
— allows you to add XForms support and manage XForms data models.
XML Model view
— allows you to create and manage XML models.
XML Model Instance view
— lists the XML data instances in your form.
