Group


Groups can be used to either group elements visible on the form or to split columns into multiple sub columns. The IYOPRO form layout is based on a four column definition. If you drag a group onto a form or inside another group, the content of the group itself will also relay on this four column layout.


In order to add a Group drag the shape from the Form Toolbox onto the Form and drop it at the desired location.


Properties

This Element utilizes beside the General Element Properties the following properties:



Based on the Type property the following visualizations can be archived:


Group Box type

The Group Box type will group elements visible together. Please note, that the group element itself utilizes a margin and that the containing elements will be a little smaller than if they where used outside the group.



None type

The None type will group elements together invisibly. The dashed border around the group is visible only in the form designer. Please note, that the group element itself does not utilize a margin and that the containing elements will align at the same bounds as if they where used outside the group.

With the None type you can split one or more columns into four new columns. Because groups may be nested, you can create any column style.



Paging Properties

If you use a Page Break within a Group, the last page of the Group may not be the last page of the entire form. Therefore, you may choose whether or not you want to display the submit button on the last page.
