The form is the user interface part of the session. Forms, which are presented to users, include data and actions that users can perform on that data. The session and form are integrated; one form per session is defined. The form definition in the session identifies the fields, labels, and options that are available in the session's overview display window and details window.


Field groups allow certain fields to be displayed together within a box, or within a tab. The Item – General session contains more than one tab.

Item - General


Some sessions can fit all their fields on one tab, like the Countries detail session.


To create forms

A Form provides the rules for the user dialog, or panel, that is displayed. You can create and edit sessions and forms using the Sessions (ttadv2500m000) session. This session acts as a Developer’s workbench as it provides access to all the major components of a session.

Use the LN Dynamic Form Editor that is part of Development Tools. This is a PC based application that should be installed for each developer. The LN Dynamic Form Editor also provides access to the major components of the session.

The form editor allows you to specify the available session types for the form (overview and detail), the field groups, labels and fields that are used to create the form.

The form that is presented to the user is created dynamically:

  • The form layout is used to determine the labels and fields, the grouping of the fields, and the sequence of the fields.
  • The table field authorizations of the user insure that only fields that the user is allowed to view are shown on the form.
  • The mode the session is started in determines if the session is in overview mode or details mode.
