Floating Data Field Layout

The new floating layout of data fields allows automatic hypertext-like display of data fields in Web Site Factory applications. The floating layout can be applied to any data field category in a form view. You can see this in action at http://dev.codeontime.com/demo/websitefactory1/pages/employees.aspx if you select an employee record.

The layout is useful when you have a large number of fields in your database tables. The forms will automatically adjust themselves when you edit the record or resize the window. Here is the same form in edit mode. Notice that the field composition is not the same this time.

You can make this form even more compact if you request the field category to start the new column.

Here is the same record with the floating category of data fields that was configured to start the new column.

You can instruct the code generator to start all form view categories in the new column and use the floating field layout on Features page of the project settings.
