Editing Item Groups

You edit item groups by selecting a group and then editing the group record or by editing items in the group's Group Item List.

In the group record, you can change the group theme or the order in which the group displays.

In the Group Item List for a group, you can edit records by changing their sequence of display or by changing the type of UI control used to display the item.

If you change the UI control for a relationship, make sure that the new control allows the user to exercise the full range of the cardinalities you have defined for the relationship.

After you edit a group, you can verify your work by validating the customizable product. Validating a customizable product displays the selection pages a user sees during a configuration session. To validate the customizable product, from the Group Lists menu, choose Validate.
