Multi Field Sheet Widget

Basics

The Multi Field Sheet Widget is a widget that allows data for multiple fields to be displayed in a compact form. The widget displays the data in two columns, with the field name in the left column and the field value in the right column. It is best suited for displaying contents of fields whose data takes up little space such as numbers, dates and short text. Full control over formatting of data is still possible. It has this icon in the form builder Design mode toolbar: images/download/attachments/1805017/sheet.png

Adding a sheet widget

To add a multi field sheet widget switch to design mode and place it on the form. You will be prompted for which fields you want to display in the widget. Multiple fields can be selected, but all must be from the same entity. Once added to the form the widget can be resized and positioned as needed.
