Screen Builder Modes

Understand each of Screen Builder's modes.

Design Mode

Use Design mode to design your Screen. Design mode is the default mode when a Screen is created or edited. While in Design mode, use the Design setting section to configure controls that you place into your Screen Builder canvas.

Preview Mode

Use Preview mode to view and test your Screen. Test how your controls function as a form user would experience your Screen during a Request.
Furthermore, test how the Screen's controls you configured in Design mode interact with JSON data models. ProcessMaker Platform represents Screens as JSON data models. You can view any JSON data model in Preview mode to test how a Process's JSON data model or another Screen's data model interacts with your Screen. Viewing the JSON data model can be helpful to see how values are entered into the Screen as well as to use that JSON data model in your Scripts.

Calculated Properties Mode

Use Calculated Properties mode to add Calculated Properties to that Screen. A Calculated Property is any value, mathematical calculation, or formula. A Calculated Property's determines its value either through a mathematical formula or valid JavaScript, and may include values from Screen control values and Magic Variables during that Request. Likewise, a Calculated Property's value can display in a Screen control during that Request. Calculated Properties can only be used within and only affect the Screen to which the Calculated Property is defined.

Custom CSS Mode

Use the Custom CSS mode to add custom CSS styles to a Screen.

Watchers Mode

Use Watchers mode to add Watchers to that Screen. During a Request or while previewing the Screen, a Watcher monitors when the value of a control in that Screen changes or receives a value, acts upon a Data Connector or runs a Script using that control's value, and then outputs its result to another Screen control.
