Adding a New Field (Webpart)

Info

This feature allows you to customize the user interface of your applications in a quick way. What you have to do is just select the appropriate webpart depending on your purpose. Below before general info about how you can add new field is given and then detailed examples for fields that you can add are given.


  1. Click the Add Field button from the page menu. The Add Field combo menu will open.
  2. Select, double click on, a webpart from the drop down menu.

After selecting the webpart, different information fields will appear according to each webpart. Then fill required fields: information and definitions, and then press Save button. (An interactive chart was used, for the example below, see webparts for more examples )

The example interactive chart added to homepage looks like screen view given below, also note that location of webpart can be changed as you drag, squeeze or expand it. You can also edit its content from the edit button.

 

Info
titleImportant note

Some of the WebParts that are added to the home use an iframe structure. Therefore, if the link used in WebParts (link at query result, any link in specially prepared webpart, etc.) is selected as the target parent window (_parent), the page to be opened when link is clicked will be opened in the upper window. This process is contrary to Netigma's structure, so the top window (_parent) should not be used as the target in the links used in WebPart. 


Example Fields (Webparts)

Interactive Graph

 

The interactive chart WebPart, along with the interactive home page WebPart, makes it possible to display an interactive graphic that changes according to the value selected from the map when placed at homepage. More maps and interactive graphics are available at Homepage.  Interactive homepage designs can be done using interactive webparts.

Tip

For this template, it is necessary to create a statistical query template under the objet that the map webpart is defined in. In this statistical query a group field and a maximum of 2 cluster fields should be used. (If there is more than one group field, the graph only considers the first group field) The IL_SIT_TOPLAM template defined in the ILLER object is used in the example. In this template, the "district name" group field and the "total number of sites" cluster function are included. 

 

X Axis Max: Max number of labels on x axis will be entered in this field. This feature can be used for a simpler look on multi-label graphics. 

 Graphics Type: Bar, Line, Pie, Doughnut, Radar, PolarArea, Line graphic types are selected. 

 Interaction On:Takes one of the Yes/No values . If "Yes" is selected, if there is a map webpart in the home page that can trigger the graph, the graph according to the value selected from the map will be updated simultaneously. If "No" is selected, the graphic will not be updated even if a map webpart is selected in the homepage to trigger the graph. A graphic containing all the records transmitted as a result of the query will be displayed constantly on the screen.
