Fields Basics, Creating and Deleting


Fields are main elements of the form. Basically, all fields can be divided into

Creating New Fields

Use the Add Elements Toolbars to add new elements:

To add an element to a form:

  1. First click the corresponding toolbar button;
  2. Click anywhere on the white space of the form;
  3. Depending on the type of element, you may be asked to enter main element parameters, for example, define a script for a button.
  4. Enter the name of the element.

Deleting Fields

To delete one or several elements on the form:

  1. Select it (or them) on the form.
  2. Click the "Delete" button () .

Important: When a field is deleted, you will lose all data stored in this field. However, the data will be removed from the database not at once, but little by little in the process of work with the database. For example, if you delete a field for storing images, all images available in the database will become inaccessible, though will not be removed from the database. To remove old data stored in non-existing fields from the database, use "Database Optimization".
