Modes of applet Web templates determine the kind of actions available in applets to users. The mode also determines which buttons appear in Web templates. For example, the Edit button appears in applets set to the Edit mode, but this button does not appear in applets set to Base (Read Only) mode.

Columns Displayed in the Menu drop-down list can be grayed out, and it is not visible when the applet mode is not Edit List. See the template description for Applet List (Base/EditList) for more information.
