  • Proportional: How the part fills the area. For example, if you set the proportional growth at 0.5 (from 0 to 1), the area will fill half the horizontal space of the -dashboard.

Input Map Tab

The Input Map tab provides a list of dashboard mappings for the input properties associated with the component upon which this form template part is based. These input properties list the details that may be modified for the component selected. For example, some properties that may be modified for an Entity List View (ELV) include the Source View ID and Source Entity.

This tab automatically inherits a list of all input properties associated with the dashboard component selected on the General tab and is therefore only available when the Type field on the General tab is set to Component. Fields may be updated directly in the grid.
