Object List

Description

Icon

NETIGMA objects are modified views of the database. All objects can be acces from Object List that is an meta dit interface. Most of the metadata of the application is created through the Object List. The main operations can be listed as:

  • Data field definitions( columns list)
  • Form (Viewin existing forms belong to the object, create new ones or edit)
  • Query(Viewin existing queries belong to the object, create new ones or edit)
  • Report (Viewin existing reports belong to the object, create new ones or edit)
  • Authorization roles can be specified, on object basis authoriations can be set.
  • Module definitions,
  • Action definitions can be made quickly with Object List screen.

This help section focuses on Object List interface and operations that are performed within it.

Object List Screen

To open object list first go to Management> Framework Operations>Object List and select the object you want to define:

  • On the left side, you see list of all the objects defined in the database . At the bottom of the object list there are general operations related to the objects.
  • On the right side, there is a shortcut to all the operations and definitions that can be made related to the selected object. For example in the picture below, world object is selected from Object List and on the right side of the panel you see sections that defines the world object. Everything on the right side(Column List, Forms, Queries etc), is belong to the object, e.g. world, thus define it:

Click on Settings under Object List, then click on default data viewers button. Data viewers can be used in order to set the same view for query result view for all objects. The topmost view type is defined as the global default setting. 

 

 Global Reports

Global Reports

Icon

Sometimes, an object-independent general report is needed that can be called by the application itself.  

Global reports,unlike other report objects. do not depend on any database table. Since they are not linked to any tables, these reports are managed from the global reports key under the object lists, not from the report options of the tables.  


  1. When you click on Global Reports button, you'll see a default global report, named: New global report. To add different report, click on Add button. 
  2. And enter the information, enter the report name, then you'll see it in the global report members list.




  3. Click on Report Design Tool to design the report.
  4. Unlike the report design tools for reports that are attached to the object, this report design tool of global report does not include all fields belong to the objects.

  5. Report fields that have a direct link to the object can not be added in global reports. 
  6. Users can adjust the settings of the fields, as adding new fields with Add button under the fields. 
 Workspaces

 Title Format

Title Format

Icon
  • The Title Format allows you to make the tab head of the information cards of the object as dynamic.
  • When the title format is written as {F @ columnname}, that is, when it is defined by the column information of the object, the tab title is arranged as "data contained in the relevant column".
    For example; In the following image, the Title Format is defined as representing country name. Thus, the object's Information Card tab appears on the screen with the name of the country.
  • Also, if there are side tabs on the object's information card, then the title of these tabs is also will be columnname used in title format.

 

Example. Type {F@country} to the Text Format field:

To check its result: select info card from the query result list. (Info Cards have been defined and placed in the query result list):

Result, Info card tab with country name:
