Widget Properties

Basic Properties

Frozen Columns

The Frozen Columns advanced property accepts a column number disregarding the Edit and Delete columns and will not allow the affected columns to move when the user scrolls left or right. For example, we have four columns in a Grid View widget of sorts. If we were to set the Frozen Columns property to two (2), the second column to the fourth column will not be affected by scrolling while all others to the left (Just column one in the example) will be affected by scrolling.

Append Current URL

When set to true, the Append Current URL advanced property will add the current URL to a querystring so that the user is redirected back to the current page after they complete the form.

UseUnencryptedGuids

The UseUnencryptedGuids advanced property will decrypt any query string values that are passed through the URL. If a widget has been set to pass a query-string to another widget, the Use Unencrypted Guids properties must match each other or the widgets will be unable to communicate with each other.

Column Definition Default Width

The Column Definition Default Width advanced property will allow you to set the default width of a column in pixels to be used when there isn't a width defined. By default this is set to null. Please note that a value of zero (0) or null will represent automatically sized columns.

Hide Grid on Load

When set to true, the Hide Grid on Load advanced property will hide the Filtered Grid on page load until the user submits the filter form. By default, it is set to false.

FetchXML

The FetchXML text area determines what sort of data a widget will be populated with. Clicking the Load Default Fetch option will populate the FetchXML area with a default fetch based on the CRM Entity chosen.  By clicking the Build button, we will be sent to another page in order to determine what the widget will look up. For more information on how to use the FetchXML function, please see the FetchXML Builder How-To.

CRM Entity

CRM Entity is a collection of fields related to a topic. For example, a CRM Entity of Contacts would have fields like: Contact Name, Telephone Number, Address, etc. CRM Entity will allow you to save a successful form submission to a particular entity. Depending on the widget and CRM Entity chosen.
