Radio Buttons control Properties — Presentation tab

Click the View properties icon in the layout containing the radio button control ( pxRadioButtons ) to display the Properties panel, and then select the Presentation tab to configure the display of the radio buttons.

Field Description
Edit Options Select an edit mode for this control. The edit mode of the control takes precedence over section and harness settings.
  • Auto — the control uses the edit mode of the section or harness in which it appears. If the section is set to Read Only, then the control is Read Only. If the section is set to Auto, then the control uses the edit mode of the harness. For example, a New harness is editable, while a Review harness is read only.
  • Read Only (always) — The property value is presented in read-only mode always even when the enclosing layout is in read-write mode. or based on a when condition rule or client-side test, even when the enclosing layout is in read-write mode.
  • Read Only (expression) — The property value is presented in read-only mode based on a client-side test. Enter a simple expression based on the comparison of a pair of constants, properties, or both, combined by Boolean operators, such as .Color="Red". You can combine the expression with a when condition rule or another expression using the && and || operators.

    As a best practice, use the Condition Builder to edit this field. Click the Open condition builder icon to open the tool. See Using the Condition Builder to configure dynamic UI actions.

  • Read Only (when) — The property value is presented in read-only mode based on a when condition. Enter the When Name key part of a when condition rule. Click the Open icon to review or create the rule.
  • Editable — the control is editable, regardless of the edit mode of the enclosing layout.

You can also specify a CSS class if you select one of the Style Ref options. By default, the class name is NegativeNumber.

Show validation messages in read-only mode Select this option to display validation errors to users at run time. When enabled for auto-generated controls in read-only mode, if the control's validation fails, the validation message is displayed. This option is available on the Presentation tab under Read-only Format . It is also available in the control ruleform. When enabled on the control ruleform, all controls using that ruleform have the option enabled.

Obfuscated

Appears if the Read-only format Type is Text.

Select Yes if you want the characters entered by the user to appear as a string of bullets. The input characters are initially added to the clipboard as unencrypted, clear text values.

Auto Prepend Appears if Type is Text and the control is not obfuscated.

Select a property or constant that you want to add either before the displayed property value. For example, when the user name appears, the system can automatically prepend the user's title.

Select a property or constant that you want to add after the displayed property value. For example, when the user name appears, the system can automatically append the full mail extension to the name.

If the Localize? check box is selected on the section's HTML tab, a SmartPrompt Appears in the Constant field in the Parameters dialog. Select a field value rule if you plan to localize the text. If this text is to be localized, enter no more than 64 characters. A field value rule with pyCaption as the second key part and this text as the final key part is needed for each locale.

Advanced Presentation Options Instead of creating a new custom format in the skin, you can adjust elements in a cell by applying Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) helper classes. For example, you can use a CSS helper class to center an element in a cell or to double the standard right margin for the element.
Show validation messages in read-only mode Select this option to display validation errors to users at run time. When enabled for auto-generated controls in read-only mode, if the control's validation fails, the validation message is displayed. This option is available on the Presentation tab under Read-only Format . It is also available in the control ruleform. When enabled on the control ruleform, all controls using that ruleform have the option enabled.
