This chapter covers the following topics:

eAM Descriptive Flexfields

A flexfield is a field comprised of sub-fields, or segments. There are two types of flexfields: key flexfields and descriptive flexfields. A key flexfield appears on your form as a normal text field with an appropriate prompt. A descriptive flexfield appears on your form as a two-character-wide text field with square brackets [ ] as its prompt. When opened, both types of flexfields appear as a pop-up window that contains a separate field and prompt for each segment. Each segment has a name and a set of valid values. The values might also have value descriptions.

Descriptive flexfields provide customizable "expansion space" on your windows and pages. You can use descriptive flexfields to track additional information, important and unique to your business, that would not otherwise be captured by the window. Descriptive flexfields can be context sensitive, where the information your application stores depends on other values your users enter in other parts of the window.

A descriptive flexfield appears on a form as a single-character, unnamed field enclosed in brackets. Just like with a key flexfield, a pop-up window appears when you move your cursor into a customized descriptive flexfield. Like a key flexfield, the pop-up window has as many fields as your organization needs.

Each field or segment in a descriptive flexfield has a prompt, just like ordinary fields, and can have a set of valid values. Your organization can define dependencies among the segments or customize a descriptive flexfield to display context-sensitive segments, so that different segments or additional pop-up windows appear depending on the values you enter in other fields or segments.
