Show properties in the title bar of a form

Managing information in forms is one of in-STEP BLUE’s biggest strengths. Say you want to show the current state and the property summary in the title bar of a ticket form. How can you do that?

Adapt the template of the form

So that the current state and the summary property can be shown in the title bar of the ticket forn, the form has to be adapted. Change into the in-STEP BLUE template view and check out the template for tickets.

Check out the ticket template

Now open the in-STEP BLUE Form Designer. It can be found in the program group microTOOL in-STEP BLUE in the Tools sub folder. Load the loaned ticket templates into the form designer for editing. The settings for the layout can be determined on the right-hand side when you click on the title bar of the opened template. In the property Caption the display in the title bar can be defined. Enter popular user-defined settings and BuildIn-Property here in the angle brackets.

In this example you can see that the user-defined properties summary and the BuildIn-Property CurrentState will be displayed in the title bar. To stop the product name from being shown in the title bar, set the value of HideProductName to True.

Then save the template and return it to in-STEP BLUE. If you open a ticket you will see the current state and the property summary at a first glance at the form’s title bar.
