Toolbar extension zone

The widget is by default found in the toolbar of app view forms, and is used to display custom widgets of the toolbar extension zone type. Such widgets are only created in modules and are used to implement new capabilities in the system. For example, you can use them to add buttons for interacting with external systems integrated with ELMA365.

Using widgets with this type of extension is convenient because when creating of editing the widget you do not need to manually add it to each form. These widgets are displayed in the Toolbar extension zone automatically. To hide unused widgets from the zone, disable the modules that they belong to.

To place the Toolbar extension zone widget on a create or edit form, drag it from the right panel of the interface designer to the  modeling canvas, or click +Widget. To learn more, see Form template.

Manage the settings in the pop-up.

Events and System tabs
