Bloc Layout and Visibility Settings
This is a replica of the setting that can be found at the top the Bloc Form Preview called used Use Full Width Layout.
Please note, we are investigation the disconinuation of the feature to improve the performance of the data being displayed on the bloc. Due to the availability of more powerful counting field rules this feature is more redundant than it has been in the past.
When editing a form in a bloc, you can see dashed white lines to allow you to have better visibility of the fields in the bloc and their location. This feature is mostly not necessary on the front end. However there are sometimes more complex Blocs where users may still want to keep these white dashed borders. This settings enables that.
Front end of a bloc with the setting turned on, note the light borders.
Once you have submitted the form, or updated an existing record, with this setting turned on the form will close.
This option will hide the Advanced Report section from the front of the bloc:
Removes the Submit Button from visibility on the bloc.
Hint: A bloc is more than just a form, it is quite normal to want to use blocs just to display some information or pictures.
Removes the Update Button from visibility on the bloc (i.e. when Editing a record)
Removes the Delete Button from visibility on the bloc (i.e. when Editing a record)
This is the text that will replace "Submit" in the form, e.g. "Create it Now"
This is the text that will replace "Add New" in the form, e.g. "Add New Staff Member"
This is the text that will replace "Update" in the form, e.g. "Update Invoice"
This is the text that will replace "Delete" in the form, e.g. "Remove Staff Member"
Sometimes we may just want to see data or the form on the front end. This hides the "Add New" button on the front end if the form is closed.
This hides the form when you load the page so that your display will only show data.
Hint: Using this along with the "Hide Add New Button" will allow you to create a page where you can only see data and not enter anything into a form.
