PeopleTools 8.57 – Page field property window in Application Designer
One of the newest features in PeopleSoft development area is ‘Page Field property window’ in Application Designer. This feature added in PeopleTools 8.57 is an excellent addition and is sure to improve developers’ productivity as it comes in really handy and provides easy access to ‘Page Field Property’ information.
When you open a page in application designer and select a page field, property window will start to show the page field information as it’s shown in below example.
It displays the details of page field such as type, definition, record name, field name, style, action type, related control.……. and so on. Property window shows up adjacent to the page in the development window.
All this information was always accessible by viewing the Page Field Property dialog box via Edit > Page Field Property or pressing the Ctrl + Enter Key.
Page Field Property window not just shows the information about the page field but also lets you update any of the values.
Here is a side by side comparison of the existing Page Field Properties dialog box and the new Property window for Page field properties. As you can see, all the fields on the original properties page are also present in new property view window.
If you don’t wish to see this page field property window, you have the option to disable it. It can then be enabled when you need it. To enable/disable this property view window, go to View > Property Window in your PeopleTools 8.57 Application Designer or simply press ALT+2 on your keyboard.
