Fields Tab

Use this tab to configure fields that will be assigned to the routed document.

Option Description
For file cabinet Enter the name of the file cabinet whose fields will be displayed in the Fields list. The default value of this field is the File cabinet defined in the General tab. You can use RRTs in this field.
Fields The list of the fields that can be assigned to the document. This list displays Name, Type, Value, and Cabinet settings for each field. There are two possible situations:
  • If the For file cabinet text box is not empty, and the component can establish connection with the DocuWare 5.x server in order to retrieve information about fields of the file cabinet, then the component automatically displays all fields specific for the defined file cabinet. In this situation the Cabinet setting is the same for all fields. When you add a new field, the component will display the defined file cabinet name for this field in the Cabinet column. 
  • If the For file cabinet text box is empty or contains RRT or, for some reason, the component cannot retrieve information about the file cabinet, then it displays the fields that were specified earlier in the component configuration. In this situation the Cabinet setting may have different values because there may be fields from different file cabinets. When you add a new field in this case, the component will display this field with empty value of the Cabinet.
Note:

A field will be assigned to the document only if the Cabinet value corresponds to the file cabinet where the document will be stored or the Cabinet value is empty. If the Cabinet value is empty, this field settings will be applied for all available file cabinets on the DocuWare 5.x server.

A field can be specified by several methods in the component configuration:

  1. Field name is passed via RRT, displayed Cabinet value is empty.
  2. Field name is passed via RRT, displayed Cabinet value is non-empty.
  3. Field name is specified explicitly, displayed Cabinet value is empty.
  4. Field name is specified explicitly, displayed Cabinet value is non-empty.

If a field is specified by several methods in one configuration, this field will get the value which is defined by the method of higher priority. The sequence of methods' priorities in descending order is the following: 1,2,3,4.

For example, if the fields list contains two items: 1) Name="Number", Type="Text", Value="1", Cabinet="MyCabinet";

2) Name=~CMP::SomeRRT~, Type="Text", Value="5", Cabinet="MyCabinet", and the ~CMP::SomeRRT~ is replaced by "Number" at run time, the field Number will get the value "5".

Add Click this button to add a new field to the Fields list. This button opens the Add Field dialog box.
Note: Using this button makes sense mostly if the For file cabinet text box is empty or contains RRT or, for some reason, the component cannot retrieve information about the file cabinet.
Edit Select a field from the Fields list and click this button to edit the selected field. This button opens the Edit Field dialog box.
Note: If the Fields list is empty or there is no item selected in this list, then the Edit button is disabled.
Remove Select one or several fields from the Fields list and click this button to remove the selected field(s).
Note: If the Fields list is empty or there is no item selected in this list, then the Remove button is disabled.
Note:

If you select the Rename document check box in the Document title and at the same time specify the value of the name field in the Fields tab, the value specified in the Fields tab will be ignored and the document will be renamed according to the renaming schema.

If you select the Use document version support check box in the Document tab and at the same time specify the value of the version field in the Fields tab, the value specified in the Fields tab will be ignored and the version field value will be set according to the version support parameters defined in the Document tab.
