RAMP Screen Name

This is the programmatic name that RAMP uses to uniquely identify this screen as a destination, a junction or a special screen. It is stored in the (Name) property of the screen inside newlook. This is why it is displayed in brackets. Usually every newlook Host Screen Name has a unique RAMP (Name) associated with it.

Sometimes, in situations where multiple newlook Host Screens are very similar, they are all assigned the same RAMP Screen (Name) to reduce the amount of scripting required. Refer to the guide for more details about this special programming technique.

Input Controls

The input controls tab sheet shows the list with all the input controls found in the Newlook screen currently showing. Note that input controls are not only input fields.

Use the Current (Name) Assigned column to modify or set a name for a control. Notice two things when you focus on a cell in this column:

·         The background of the control in the Newlook screen corresponding to the cell being focused on becomes pink to provide visual feedback as to which field will be named.

·         The cell’s content is pre-filled with a default prefix. It allows you to standardise the field names should your application use a certain naming convention. You can modify the default behaviour in the Windows IIP (UF_SYSTM unless you have created your own). See New IIPs for Windows.

Output Controls

The output controls tab sheet shows the list of output controls found in the current Newlook screen. You normally do not need to name output fields.

Last Saved

Shows the date and time when this screen was last saved using Dynamic Naming. If this was the first time Dynamic Naming was used for this screen you would see a message indicating so.

User Profile

Shows the User profile that last saved this screen using Dynamic Naming.
