Creating Fields

Fields are used to define specific pieces of information that you would like to capture about Records in your Gridfox Tables. You can add new Fields to Tables at any time.

Fields can be created using either the Screen Editor or the Explorer. Both methods are described below.

Creating Fields using the Screen Editor

TIP

The Screen Editor allows you to make quick changes to your Project configuration and your Screen layouts.

Start by navigating to the Table that you would like to make changes to and click Edit This Screen. Click the plus icon in the grid, or Add New Field. Alternatively, open the Field Picker and drag a Field onto the page.

TIP

You can change the type of the Fields you add by clicking on the icon next to the field name.

Give the Field a name and click Save. Your new Field will be available to add data to in each of the Records in the Table.
