Grid Editor

The Grid Editor is a tool within a Blueprint in CSM Administrator that allows users to manage (create, edit, and delete) Business Object rids.

The Grid Editor's preview is dynamic. As users make changes, the changes are immediately reflected in the preview. Publish the Blueprint to commit the changes.

Grid Menu Bar Item Shows grid-specific commands. This menu bar appears on the Blueprint Editor menu bar only when a Form Editor is active in the Object Manager.
Toolbar The Grid Editor does not have a dedicated toolbar, but the Blueprint Editor toolbar is available with commands for cut, copy, paste, delete, and more.
Grid drop-down list Lists the grids defined for the selected Business Object (example: Default, Basic, Info). The currently-selected default grid displays at the top of the list as Default grid.
Search Control/Ignore Folders button Quickly locates and shows fields. Use the Search Control to quickly locate a field whose name and description contain a specific word or phrase (example: OwnedBy). Use the Ignore Folders button to ignore the organizational folders and show all fields at the root of the list.
Field tree Lists the Business Object fields that can be added to the grid. Fields are organized alphabetically and by folder. Fields from relationships are listed alphabetically under the relationship.
Grid preview Shows a dynamic preview of the grid (which columns (fields) are on it, column widths, and order).
Grid Properties button Opens the Grid Properties window to define row colors and images for grids.

The name of the image defined in the grid properties is the Alt Text for the image in the Browser Client grid. To change the Alt Text, you need to change the image name in the Image Manager. See CSM Web Applications and Accessibility.

Grid title, width, and sorting Defines title, width, and sorting options for the grid.
General grid settings Defines customization options for the grid (whether or not a user can remove columns and add/remove fields).
Grid grouping Shows or hides grid grouping.
