Complex Section

Use

The node type Complex section is a real all-purpose node. It allows you to combine the tab pages of the node types Folder, Template, Table, and Loop in any way.

We generally recommend not to use this node type any longer. The node types Folder, Template, Table, and Loop directly offer the correct tabs and, in addition, within the navigation tree, you can recognize these node types immediately.

Procedure

  1. Create a node of type Complex section in the navigation tree of the Form Builder.
  2. Enter a unique name for the node and a description (for example, template with data).
  3. Determine the general purpose of the complex section. To do this use the General Attributes tab:
    • Select U nstructured if you need only the Events tab to display header and footer areas. In this case, you can use the Data tab for repeated processing.
    • Select Table if you need the Table tab. In this case, you can use the Data tab for repeated processing.
    • Select Template if you need the Template tab. In this case, you cannot use the Data tab for repeated processing.
  1. To read data from an internal table using the Data tab mark the Repeat Processing field in the Data box.

If, due to changing the selection, tab pages would disappear, the Smart Builder offers a warning beforehand.

Result

You can now use the selected tab pages.
