PCS Web Form Tips and Tricks – Part 1 by Derek Kam



In this blog series, I will be discussing some useful tips and tricks that will be helpful to you when you are designing your form using the new PCS web form controls and events.

In one of my colleague’s blog, he has highlighted some of the features available in PCS web form.  In PCS official documentation, it described how to configure the controls.  In this blog, I will highlight some tips and tricks when you are designing the form.  There will be 3 parts in this blog series:

General Tips and Tricks

  • Before you start designing your form, I would strongly recommend you work with business users to define the requirement like form styles for different devices, form rules/events, data definition/business objects, and identify all integration requirement in the web form.
  • Document your web form design and events.
  • PCS Web Form allows you to drag existing business object to create a web form. However, it will create a standard layout that might not meet your requirement and you might end up spending more time rearranging the controls that PCS Form created for you.   In this scenario, you have an option to create our own form data definition using the business object and bind the controls to the data definition manually.
  • In PCS, the main form can contain 1 or more sub form. However, you will not be able to access the data definition in the sub form using event in the main form. If you have a requirement that you need to access the sub form data definition, you will need to detach the sub form in the main form. Read the complete article here.
