How do you build a multi-column spec in the spec editor?
- You can build multi-column specs by dragging and dropping various widgets in the order you choose into the form area on the right.
- By default the product editor allows you to drag and drop fields into a two column spec. The number of columns can be changed on a tab level as well as at the row level.
- Fields can be dropped into any column available.
- Once a field/widget is dropped the advanced product editor automatically adds another row to allow you to extend the form.
- Some fields such as Quantity and Dimensions allow you to reorder the individual components within by dragging them across each other. For instance you can drag length to be after width if so desired.
- Once a field is dropped onto the form area, you can edit its name and set properties by clicking on the pencil icon next to the label.
- Clicking on a tab name brings up the properties associated with the label.
- Here are some things you can set in the label properties:
- Set the field as required by checking the Required checkbox.
- Make a field read only by checking on the "Read only in client view" checkbox.
- Mark the field as not seen in the client view by marking it do not show in client view.
- Specify a default value by typing it into the default value box
- Control how a field appears in reporting by specifying a unique reporting label
- Tab Level control:
- You can name a tab by clicking on the tab name or by clicking on the edit pencil next to the tab name.
- add multiple tabs by clicking on the + icon at the top, next to the tab.
- Set tab level properties
