eaForms provides a range of buttons that can be used to perform:
some are as illustrated in the screenshot below.
Here is a summary of buttons that are available within eaForms - which we divide into the following categories:
Standard action buttons - such as save and cancel a form
Saves the contents from the current eaForm and closed the form Please note that unless explicitly stated, it does not save information relating to elements referenced)
Ignores any changes that have been made to the fields displayed on the form and closes the form.
Please note that if changes have been made to elements that are access through the form e.g. from a list on the form then changes that have been made and saved will remain.
Element type specific buttons - which result in the creation of attributes to the current element
Create "associated" note or element buttons - which will result in the creation of an note/element that will be related to the current element
Script buttons - an experimental feature where the use of a button will result in the execution of a script
Saves the contents of the form then runs the script that has been included with the button definition.
This button will run the script associated with the button definition, and conditionally Save the contents of the form based on the result from the script.
If the script returns '0' then the form is closed else saved"
Wizard buttons - which either open a new package or a new form
Ignores any changes to the current form and if default value is a valid GUID opens the relevant eaForm for the defined package
Updates the current element from form and then if default value is a valid GUID opens the relevant eaForm for the defined package
Save contents of form, close it and then open the given form name - the specified form must be compatible with the with the current element / stereotype
