The Expert Mode

Here you will find an overview of the additional features of Intrexx that are available in the expert mode. In the United Planet Support Center you can inform yourself about available seminars from the United Planet Academy, which will allow you to deepen your expert knowledge of Intrexx.

Applications can, under certain circumstances, be made nonfunctional if incorrect settings are entered in expert mode. Please note that United Planet cannot offer support if this occurs.

Menu Extras / Options

In the menu Extras / Options you can activate the expert options.

Expert Options in the module Applications

Expert Tab

If you Enable expert options on this tab, you will find the additional tab Expert in the properties dialog of elements.



Attributes can be changed or defined here, which describe a corresponding element in its XML application file. You can find the documentation on individual expert attributes in the United Planet Support Center.

You can change an existing attribute by clicking on the corresponding line in the Value column.

Settings

Expert attributes facilitate control of the implementation in the web. Settings, on the other hand, control the behavior of the server or of the controls. The names of the settings are designed to make clear on which elements the setting may be applied.

By clicking on the Settings button in the lower part of the dialog box, individual settings may be defined.

Details



The Details dialog is also available when expert options are active, via the context menu of an element or by pressing the F4 key.

Info

On this tab you will find the title, type, GUID, and name of the currently selected element in XML. The GUID (Globally Unique IDentifier) is a unique identification of each element in Intrexx. The link to Show information allows you to reach additional information for all elements that are superior to the currently selected element (such as the page that contains an edit field, or the grouping that contains an edit field).

XML



On this tab you will find an XML editor, in which the XML with the current settings for the selected element will be shown. Click Edit to change these attributes.

Filter Editor

Filters can also be directly edited in expert mode. Click on Expert, in the filter dialog in order to open the filter editor.



The source text for a filter that has been already defined in the standard dialog will be shown in the Filter Editor and can be further changed from there. The changes can be saved by clicking Save Filter and Close or via the File menu. The filter will be made active after publishing the application.

Indexes

If the Expert options have been activated, in the properties dialogs of data groups the additional tab Indexes will be available. Here indexes for database fields can be defined, which will improve performance when filtering or sorting tables in applications.

Conditional Display of Buttons and Groupings

In the expert mode, buttons and groups can be shown depending on a value.
