Layout designer

Learn how to use the Layout Designer, a tool for editing Layout Templates;  components and basic principles overview.


A template is a web application page that has a particular layout, similar design, and filled with data according to a pre-defined pattern.
Any template can be represented in a number of familiar to us forms and pages of any type. These can be:

  • landing pages
  • preview pages
  • grids
  • tabs
  • dialog boxes
  • property sheets 
  • single step and multiple-step forms etc.

To create a new application page template, it is necessary to define:

  1. Data model: a set of data that will be used in a template to create a data filtering and displaying pattern;
  2. Controls: specify displayed data formatting and representation to the actual user who will see the page. For instance, the data will be shown as a grid, a list, a field with a checkbox, a static value, a text field with free input, a drop-down list, etc.;
  3. Layout: the template’s markup or areas of the page where the controls are placed;
  4. Audience: settings defining access restrictions for the template displaying to a specific set of application users.
