Altova MobileTogether Designer

Edit fields can be used to allow input from the end user. If the end-user input is intended to be stored in a page source node, then an association must be made in the design with this node (by dropping the node from the page source onto the control). In this case, ensure that the edit field is editable by setting the Enabled/Editable property to true. The value of the associated node is displayed in the edit field. When the end user modifies the edit field, the associated node is updated automatically.


Instead of associating a node with the edit field, the content of the edit field can be defined by an XPath expression in the Text property (see below). If the XPath expression locates an XML node, the effect is the same as associating a node by dropping it on to the control. The XPath expression can also be used to calculate an output and display it in the edit field. In this case the Enabled/Editable property will be set to false automatically, and cannot be edited. It then functions in the same way as a Label control.
