In the Mobile Application Platform framework, a layout is the actual mobile application, and it can contain one or more application pages.
The end result of building a layout is a URL that’s used to invoke the application.
PeopleSoft documents define the data structure for Mobile Application Platform applications. To add a Mobile Application Platform application to the database, you must specify a PeopleSoft document that contains the data structure for the application.
A sample of items that you define for each page in a layout includes:
Elements that appear on the page. For example, text, check boxes, buttons, and other page controls.
Main layout classes, style, and color themes.
Content classes, styles, and color themes.
Page transitions. For example, flip, slide, turn, and so on.
For each page in a layout, you specify the elements to appear on the page. For example, text, check boxes, buttons, text fields, and other page controls.
PeopleSoft provides a Layout Designer for building a mobile application.
