Move the Control on the Page
After adding a control to a Screen page, you may move it to another location on that page such that it is above or below other controls placed on that page. A control cannot be moved to another Screen page.
Follow these steps to move a control to another location on that Screen page:
Place your cursor anywhere on the control not displaying the Duplicate Control
or Delete Control
Hold your cursor, then drag the control above or below other controls on that Screen page. Screen Builder previews where the control would display on the page based on how you position the control above or below other controls. If the control cannot be placed in a location because your cursor is above an existing control or too far to the left or right of the page, the
icon displays in the preview.
Place the control at the location on the page you want it. The other control(s) on the page automatically adjust position.
Copy the Control with its Settings
Copying a control also copies the current settings of that control. The copied control displays below other controls placed on that Screen page.
. The control copies with its current settings, and then displays below other controls placed on that page.
As a best practice, after copying a control, change the Variable Name setting value for the copied control to its own unique variable value. Otherwise, in-progress Requests that use this Screen read from and send data to both controls.
Enter the value to represent this control in custom CSS syntax when in Custom CSS mode. As a best practice, use the same CSS Selector Name value on different controls of the same type to apply the same custom CSS style to all those controls.
