Setting Alternate Page Element IDs
When you add a page element to the Layout grid, the system assigns the element a unique element ID. This value appears in the ID column in the Layout grid.
As an example, the system assigns the element ID mapbutton_1 to the first push button element you add to a layout page.
You can override the system-generated page element ID for any element ID that appears as a hyperlink in the layout grid and set an alternate value.
Click the link to access the Add Alternate Label page (IB_DOCLOGUILBL_SEC) to define a unique value for the page element ID.
