Moving Fields

To move an object type field:

  1. From the Workbench shortcut bar, select Deployment Mgmt > Object Types.

    The Object Type Workbench opens.

  2. Open an object type.

    The Object Type window opens.

  3. Click the Layout tab.

  4. Select a field.

    To select a range of fields, use the Shift key. You cannot use the Ctrl key to select nonadjacent field names.

  5. Use the arrow pointers to reposition the fields in the layout builder.

  6. To switch the positions of two fields:

    1. Select the first field, and then select the Swap Mode option. An S is displayed in the option section of the selected field.

    2. Double-click the second field.

      After the fields change positions, the Swap Mode option is cleared.

  7. To open a window that displays a preview of your layout, click Preview.

    Note that:

    • If all the fields are one column wide, then all displayed columns automatically span the available section whenever a user views a package line of the given object type.

    • Rows that contain no fields are ignored. They are not displayed as blank lines.

    • Any fields that are not displayed do not affect the layout. They are considered the same as a blank field.

  8. Click OK.

    The changes to the object type are saved.
