New data field

Applications module Create new edit element Data link - New data field

Title

The title of the data field can be modified here. Further information regarding this topic can be found here.

Data field name

The name of the data field can be modified here, provided the application hasn't been published. The prefix is updated when the data type (see below) is modified. The actual name is not modified. If the specified name doesn't possess a data type prefix, changing the data type will leave the name as it is. This means, for example, changing the data type from string to datetime would change the name from STR_NAME to DT_NAME, whereas TEST_NAME would not be changed.

Control type

Select the desired control type in the lower area of the dialog.
