Use this builder to create a newspaper-style column display of the fields generated by Page Automation builders, such as the Data Page builder.
This layout in an application conserves vertical space by displaying a long form in a more compact horizontal presentation.
To use this builder, you select the container field that holds all the fields that you want to place in columns. Usually this will be the field that corresponds to the variable selected in the Data Page builder.
Next, you choose the number of columns you want to be displayed.
Once you have determined how many columns to display, you can have the builder automatically divide the elements equally among the columns, or you can place elements manually among the columns. When you place elements manually, you can drag and drop fields as required within the List of Fields.
This builder creates additional nodes in page automation trees. You can see these nodes if you add a Data Field Modifier builder to the model and use it to select fields within the page. You will see that additional hierarchy has been created in the Page Automation contents. This change in content exists only after this Form Layout builder's position in the builder call list. Therefore, a Data Field Modifier builder located below (after) this builder should take this new hierarchy into account. A Data Field Modifier located above (before) this builder will not reflect the modified hierarchy. When editing a Data Field Modifier Builder located before this builder, disable this builder to avoid confusion.
