With the Define/Edit UserFields dialog box, you create and define user fields. A host field is downloaded from the host; however, you can create user-defined fields anywhere on the host screen image. By dragging the mouse on the form to capture the area you want to designate as a new user field, you can capture all of the text within that area for display in other user-defined forms, controls, or events.
You can also edit the position of a field you've created, or view the properties of a host field.
Screen tree pane
Lists the name of the selected form, along with any previously-created user fields. Also shows the names of host fields.
Delete button: Choose to remove a user field. This button is unavailable unless you have selected a user field to delete.
Displays an image of the currently selected host screen, from which you can create new user fields, edit the position of user fields you previously created, or view the properties of host fields.
Field Properties Pane
Displays a two-column list that shows the properties for the field currently selected in the Screen tree pane.
Name: (Read-only) The name of the field. As you create a new user field, a sequentially numbered name is automatically generated (for example, UserField1, UserField2, UserField3, and so on) and listed in the Define/Edit UserFields dialog box, and the new field is outlined in red.
This name cannot be changed, as it must be accessed by the rules. For more details, see Rule Syntax.
Type: (Read-only) Host Field or User Field.
Start Row: The position of the top left corner of the row, in pixels.
Start Column: The position of the top left corner of the column, in pixels.
End Row: The position of the bottom right corner of the row, in pixels.
End Column: The position of the bottom right corner of the column, in pixels.
