The Radio Button consists of individual options combined
in a group. Only one of the options may be selected by the user in the
browser. The value of the selected option will be saved as text in the
linked data field. Double-clicking the group border of the Radio Button
will open its properties dialog.
Checkboxes save Boolean values. If
a checkbox is marked, it will return the value Yes;
if it is not selected, it will return the value No.
This value will be entered to the connected Boolean data
field when the data set is saved.
With the Image setting, a checkbox
view element will be shown in the browser as a checkbox. As with the
button, images can be loaded to show
selected or not selected status of the checkbox. A checkbox counts as
selected when its connected data field returns the value Yes;
with a value of No , the checkbox will be
displayed in the browser as not selected.
The Line view element can be used
to help structure a page.
Basic Controls - Lists
Drop-Down lists will be used to display entries in list
The listbox offers the same functions as the
Drop-down list (with the exception of data assignment), but shows the
entries in the browser as an open list.
With the Multiple Selection edit element, multiple values may be selected.
Here you can see the edit page of an application in which customer-specific tasks are distributed to employees.
In the upper selection list, the customer will be selected; in the selection list underneath it, the type of task will be
selected. In the multiple selection, all employees will be listed. In the Available field, you can search for employees,
and move them to the Selected list with a double click or a click on the arrow button.
You can also select multiple Entries in the Available list by holding the CTRL key and then move them with the
arrow key to the Selected list.
In addition, you have the possibility in the settings of the multiple selection the ability to create a filter with images that you
can select freely, which will be shown above the entries. Clicking on an image activates the filter and only shows the entries that apply for the criteria set.
The values that have been entered with a multiple selection can be shown with the view elements Multiple selection view and View table.
Users and Groups
With this setting, the multiple selection will be used for the selection of users, user groups, and additional objects from the Intrexx User Manager.
In the search field, one can search for the object name from the user manager.
Filter buttons are found underneath this field, with which the filter for the search can be restricted or expanded for
users, user groups, distribution lists, organizational units and roles, depending on whether the corresponding button is activated or deactivated.
With a double click, the objects that are intended for the distribution list will be entered to the
Selected field. Upon saving the data set, the GUIDs of the objects will be entered to the connected longtext data field.
By clicking Create New Distribution List, new distribution lists can be defined.
The structure of the User Manager will be shown here. Select the location of publication and click OK.
Enter a name for the new distribution list. A description may be entered as well.
By clicking Add Members, objects from the User Manager will be added as recipients to the distribution list.
On the Permissions tab, you will define which users and/or objects from the User Manager will
be allowed to change the recently created distribution list. You can define permissions holders by clicking
Add Members here as well. Click OK to save the settings.
The distribution list has now been entered to the browser, as well as in the User Manager. With Edit Distribution List, all existing distribution lists can be edited.
The distribution list can be implemented in the e-mail configuration of a button
Upon clicking on this button, each member of the distribution list will then receive the e-mail. The distributor can also be used in filters.
Multiple Selection View
The Multiple selection view shows values from
fields of the data type longtext or from
subordinate data groups.
Sortable List / Sortable List View
The order of entries in the sortable list can be changed however you
wish in the end device via drag & drop.
With a view table, data records will be displayed in
table format. For each connected data field, a table column will be
created, and for each data record, a row in the table will be created.
The sorting of the table can be changed in the browser by clicking on
the column header. A view table can display data of the same level,
data from super- ordinate data groups, and data from the immediately
subordinate data group.
Free Layout Table
In the Free layout table, a view
page will be integrated, which will be repeated to display the existing
data records. The view page can be structured with high production
values with images, headers formatted any way you wish, and texts.
Tables can not be used on view pages that are displayed in a free
The calendar and resource controls can be inserted into an application of your choice.
The control can be used either as a calendar or as a resource chart - the difference between those
two controls are the presets that can be set for the different presentations of the data.
Overviews - Tree Controls
Tree / Tree View
Hierarchical structures will be displayed with the tree element.
These control can exclusively be used in Exchange applications.
Path navigation for tree
For the tree, there is the ability for both edit and view elements to set up a path navigation. In this
way, you can navigate through its structure using either the tree
control or by entering the path.
The Filter information shows the current value
from the selected controls on the same page at run time, and offers the facility
to reset these values. All of the elements, that are used in a
dependency and the settings of which are displayed, can be assigned.
This enables the user to see a much clearer indication which filters
are currently applied.
With the filter type Value Range, the lower and
upper limits of an area can be defined. The filter will be used for the
types Date, Date & Time, Integer, Currency, and
floating-point. It consists of two edit fields, in which the
lower and upper values can be entered. This allows, for example, for
tasks to be filtered that have begun in a specific time frame. Here you
can see both edit fields of the filter in the browser and underneath
the view table that is connected with the filter.
With the Value Selection filter, data records will
be filtered by the selected entries. In this example, tasks have been
filtered by priority (high, middle, or low).
The Boolean Values filter is specially designed
for filtering checkboxes. With this filter type, you can, for example,
filter by completed or incomplete tasks. Various modes are available as
This filter control consists of three fields. In the first selection
list of the filter, the data field will be selected, the values of
which will be compared with the entered character string. Depending on
the data type of the selected data field, various operators can be
selected. In this example, the values of a data field have been
compared with a search term. The operator selected in the middle filter
list is definitive for the type of comparison.
With this filter type, data can be filtered via an index of letter and
In this example, the values in data fields will be filtered by the
option that has been selected.
This filter allows for the definition of checkboxes, which can be given
static values. Here, for example, tasks will be filtered by priority.
With the calendar filter, data records will be filtered by the date
that you conveniently select from the calendar control. In this
example, tasks have been filtered by the date Start.
If you click with the right mouse button on the head of the small
calendar, you can switch the control to the year view mode. In the year
view, the filter can be set to quarters or months.
Additional calendar controls
The additional controls for calendars can, aside from the appointment series, only be used if a calendar or resource element is located on the current page.
This additional control inserts two grouped button elements that enable navigation through the calendar.
If multiple calendars or resource elements are located on the current page, a dialog box opens when the Previous/Next element is created,
allowing the control to be assigned to the desired calendar.
Selection of the view
This element allows you to switch the display of the calendar or resource element, such as from a daily to weekly or monthly view.
This additional control creates a small calendar that can help select a date in the chart for a calendar or resource element.
Date display Area
This element displays the title of the calendar when the corresponding calendar or resource element is entered to the Calendar selection list.
The title is dynamically generated, depending on the view mode chosen by the user (such as November 2014 in the month view, or Monday, Sep. 29, 2014 in the day view).
The Recurring appointment allows appointment series to be created. This element is used on edit pages.
The plugin selector allows users to subscribe or unsubscribe to calendar plugins from other applications in the browser.
Appointments can be categorized by users. The legend lists these categories with their corresponding background and font color.
Selection of resources
With this additional control, you see a list of all resources in the browser that were
created in a resource application. The resources can be unselected from this list if you, for example, want to reduce the complexity of your resource chart.
New resources can also be chosen for display in the chart.
Images and Files - Image Controls
With the Image element, a static image of your choice can be saved on the server and displayed in the application. The element can also be used to prevent entries by bots.
The Gauge control control is designed to show speeds, sound level, values of pressure, temperature or toner levels, and so on.
This view element allows values of an application to be graphically displayed.
The chart control provides many different templates, enables the number of data records to be limited,
integration of dependencies, manipulation of all chart properties, and the ability to
export charts as jpg, png, svg, and pdf.
With the gallery, you can integrate image galleries into your portal
applications quite easily.
Images and Files - File Controls
The File selection edit element gives you the ability to drag-and-drop files or
to select them from directories in order to transfer them to the server, making them available for download there.
Field Selection View
This view element shows the files that were uploaded using the File selection edit element.
Exchange File Selection for Attachments
These control can exclusively be used in Exchange applications.
This element allows the order of files in the browser to be changed via drag-and-drop.
Search and Navigation
In all Intrexx applications, you will find a main page
with the title Search, on which one may search for terms within the
application. In addition, other searches can be created with the help
of the Search view element.
With the Research view element,
complex queries about the data of an application can be made.
The FileWalker view element can
access files on the network. This requires a connection and sufficient
rights to the network to function. The connection can be set up in the
properties of the view element or in the Tools module.
This view element allows a user to page through existing
data records. The navigation element will give the number of the
current data record automatically upon loading the page. It consists of
four individual buttons. The view and edit elements of the page on
which the navigation element is positioned will be refreshed after each
movement, and display the values of the data record to which it has
With relationships, related information can be very easily and
transparently displayed in the portal. In the Application Designer, the
element will be used in order to show the relevant data on an
application page. You can drag it onto the workspace, just as with
every other element, and there position it however you
wish. Please note that the element can only be placed on pages
underneath a data group.
After saving the application, the element will be available. The page on which it is configured can, as in this example,
be loaded in a tooltip via a button in a table, showing customer data. The view element here shows, to the right of the table,
all data that is defined in the connected relationship diagram â€“ activities, contact persons, and external coordinators of the selected customer.
With the arrows to the right of the main entries, the individual areas can be shown and hidden, in order to list or hide the
relevant data. Upon mouse contact with an entry for a relationship, a symbol will be shown to the left of the entry,
with which one can open the application page configured in the relationship diagram.
Static Text for Programming
Shows static text generated by Velocity.
VTL stands for Velocity Template Language.
Velocity is an open source development of the Jakarta Apache Project
and allows the direct addressing of Java objects based on an easily
learned script language. The comprehensive language used by Velocity
takes up about 2 DIN A4 pages.
In the location where you place the VTL include element on the
workspace, your VTL file will be later executed. The entire process is
comparable to the inclusion of an ASP file with Visual Basic
To use this element, you need to have experience with scripting languages and ideally also in Java development. United Planet does not provide any support for the use of VTL in Intrexx.
The calculation element allows formulas to be used in applications.
Calculation in view tables
A calculation can be configured in view tables. The result of this calculation is shown in a special area underneath the view table â€“ such as the total invoice amount shown here.
The calculation area is set in the column configuration of a view table.
Tagging - Bookmarks
The Tagging – Bookmarks edit element allows
bookmarks to be set for any kind of entry. An evaluation and comment
for the entry is also possible.
View Tagging - Bookmarks
This view element will
show the tags that you or other users have entered using the Tagging
– Bookmarks edit element.
Web Service View Table
The Web Service View Table can, as
with the view element Duplicating Group, be
implemented to list data records that are returned by a web service.
A request with multiple values can be transmitted to
various web services simultaneously. The view element Repeating
Group offers an easy possibility here to enter a variable
amount of input values. The element can be used like a normal grouping
for the grouping of edit elements. Edit elements that are placed in a
grouping have no link to a data field. If you move an edit element to a
repeating grouping, any link to data fields will be removed, if one
Elements, which are grouped with sortable grouping, can be moved
up/down or right/left, using drag and drop within the sortable
grouping. Additionally, an icon in the right hand area of the title bar
enables individual sortable elements to be hidden from display in the
browser when the information they contain is not required.
Sortable grouping vertical
Sortable grouping horizontal
Thus, for example, an application may have an extensive range of
filters setup. Users, who only want to use a selection of the available
filters, can use these controls to hide individual elements from their
displays, and thereby create a customized workspace for themselves.
If any element, for example, a view field or a check box, is placed in
a sortable grouping, a Sortable element will be
created automatically. This is a further grouping, within which the
elements can be summarized.
Here, you can see two sortable elements within a sortable grouping. In
the browser, these sortable elements, together with the elements
contained, can be moved horizontally or vertically –
depending on the type of sortable grouping - within the sortable
In the properties dialog of the element, the title of the sortable
grouping can be edited.
