CONFIGURATION

Creating a heading

In the General Settings pane:

  • Right-click on a dimension > Create Heading > Choice of type,

  • Right-click on a form > Create Heading > Choice of type,

The corresponding part then opens:

Specify the characteristics of the heading, then confirm by clicking on the Validate button.

A Counter heading has the following characteristics:

Name

Give this heading a name.

Description

Give the heading a description. The description is optional.

Index

Check this box to index the heading in the database. This enables you to accelerate searches, filters, imports when this heading is used as a criterion in searches, filters or imports.

Indexing of the headings makes it possible to improve performance on very specific cases.

Note

We strongly advise you to contact STILOG I.S.T. technical support if these types of needs are identified.

Format

There are three predefined formats:

  • Year orders C{d,yyyy}{n,0000}, this format represents a concatenation of:

    • the letter “C”,

    • the current year,

    • and an incremental 4 digit number.

  • Timestamp {d,yyyyMMddHHmmss}, this format represents the current Date/Time.

  • Simple {n,0000}, this format represents a 4 digit incremental number.

You can modify one of the existing formats to adapt it. You must keep to the standard for this format defined by the three examples. (See REGEX)

Example of format that can be created: ID - {n,00000} - {d,HHmm}

This heading’s value for future resources will be:

ID - a five digit number - hour/minute of resource creation:

  • ID - 000001 - 0850

  • ID - 000002 - 0912

Start

Define the number the counter starts at.

Example:

If the Format is {n,0000} and the value of the Start setting is 1, the value of the Counter type of heading for the first resource is: 0001.

For subsequent resources, this value will be 0002, 0003, etc.
