Multiple form splits

Form splits enable you to organize fields on a form into columns. When you use multiple form splits, you are grouping sets of fields together, one columnar group below another columnar group. A system property controls the use of multiple form splits.

When you organize fields in this manner and the user is viewing the form on a small mobile device, the fields within the first split are listed before the fields in the second split. In this example, the Asset tag, State, Serial number, and Substate field are listed before any of the fields below them. You can also create elements that span the form at the top of the form.

The property glide.ui.form_multiple_splits must be enabled to use this capability. If this property is missing or false, then things work as they always have. If this property is set to true, the following options appear in the Available column of the Configure Form slushbucket:

  • |- begin_split -|
  • |- split -|
  • |- end_split -|

When you move any of these options to the Selected column, the names remain in the Available column, so you can select them multiple times.

Note: Additional split sections beyond the default split section must contain all three items: the begin, the split, and the end.
