<readonly> minOccur :Number

Specifies the minimum number of times the Panel will be repeated.

This property can be set through the Panel Dialog. If the value is set greater than 1, the panel will be repeated at least that many times.

Negative values are ignored

Type:
  • Number
Since:
  • 6.0

<readonly> maxOccur :Number

Specifies the maximum number of times the Panel can be repeated.

The property can be set through the Panel Dialog. If the value is set greater than 1, the panel can be repeated at most that many times.

Type:
  • Number

  • 6.0

<readonly> repeatable :Boolean

Specifies if the panel is repeatable or not

* A Panel is considered repeatable if the value of minOccur property is strictly less than maxOccur

Type:
  • Boolean
Since:
  • 6.0

<readonly> panel :Panel

returns itself

Overrides:

<readonly> instanceManager :InstanceManager

returns the InstanceManager object managing this Panel object.

Each Panel object is managed by an InstanceManager which provides API, to retrieve the instances of the Panel, create and remove instances

<readonly> title :string

returns the title associated with the panel

<readonly, non-null> index :number

Index of the Node among its siblings having the same name as itself

Every node in the Adaptive Form field has an index depending on the number of same named siblings that the node has before it. If the element has no same named sibling its index will always be 0.

Type:
  • number
Since:
  • 6.0
Inherited From:

<readonly, nullable> nonLocalizedTitle :string

Non Localized Title of the element.

Type:
  • string
Since:

Inherited From:

<readonly, non-null> somExpression :string

SOM Expression of the Node.

In Adaptive Forms SOM is a model to access fields and Panels. The SOM Expression provides easy access to the Fields and Objects through a straightforward syntax

Type:
  • string
Since:
  • 6.0
Inherited From:
Example
Considering the heirarchy,
-- guide
  -- panel1
  ---- field2
  ---- panel2
  ------ field3
the som Expression of field3 will be guide[0].panel1[0].panel2[0].field3[0]. The 0 here represents
the same name sibling index of that particular item in its parent. If panel2 has an additional child field3 as
  ---- panel2
  ------- field3
  ------- field3
The second field3 would have the somExpression guide[0].panel1[0].panel2[0].field3[1]

<readonly, non-null> name :string

Name of the node

<readonly, nullable> longDescription :String

Specifies the long description present in the Scriptable object

In AF, one can define long Description for the Objects. This API returns the long Description set on the Objects.

Type:

Inherited From:

<readonly, nullable> shortDescription :String

<readonly> items :Array.<GuideNode>

returns a list of children inside the component.

Each item in the array can either be a Field or a Panel

Inherited From:

dorExclusion :boolean

Whether the object is excluded from DOR or not

The property specifies the exclusion of the field from document of record. If the value is true, then the field is excluded otherwise included in DoR. If excludeFromDoRIfHidden property is set at guide container, the value of dorExclusion is derived from visibility of field dynamically.

enabled :boolean

Specifies whether the component is enabled or read-only.

If the value of the property is true, the component is enabled otherwise disabled (read-only).

If a Panel is set to be disabled, then all of its descendants become disabled. But if a Panel is set to be enabled than all its descendant that are not disabled (i.e. their enabled property is not explicitly set to false) become enabled.
