Group box for rows or columns layout RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone have a good way of rendering (post-rendering) a group box around a columns or rows layout in a details or add/edit screen (single entity not a collection)?  I would like to group certain rows with a header and possibly a border, similar to the groupbox control for the SL client.  Thanks.

  • Hi Hessc,

    Do you want to split the properties of single entity into several group box as below image?

    I divide the customer's properties into three parts. There are Basic Information, Contact Information and Record Information. The design view please refer to following screenshot. Every part around by a Group box. If any question, please feel free to let me know.

    Best Regards,

  • Hessc, you could probably adapt my tab control code to do what you want or even just render a single tab: http://mhinteractive.net/blog/a-tabcontrol-with-one-line-of-code-in-the-lightswitch-html-client/
