Non-grid form applets were used in releases prior to release 7.7 for the Edit mode of list applets in SI mode. Most form applets now use the grid layouts as described in the previous section. This section describes non-grid form layouts, which are still available, but are no longer used in preconfigured Siebel applications.
The four-column form templates define a set of layout regions. A region can hold one or more label/field pairs. Controls are dimensioned in Siebel Tools and then placed on regions of the form. The four-column form contains regions of different horizontal proportion; it is possible to accommodate controls that span one, two, and four columns.
Regions are also grouped. Grouping helps guarantee that regions consume only the minimum vertical space required to render them. When controls are not mapped to a region, the region collapses, and the next mapped region moves up the form to take its place.
Figure 14 displays the master template for layout regions.
