The Pages Pane enables you to add new pages to a project and displays a tree of all the pages in the project (see screenshot below). To see the default location of the Pages Pane, go to The Graphical User Interface (GUI).

To display a page, click its entry in the Pages Pane.

 

Top pages, sub pages, tabbed pages, and control templates

There are four kinds of page-type components at the project level:

 

Top pages: A top page is part of the sequence of pages that makes up a workflow. When the solution is started, it progresses from the first page to the last, in the order listed in the Pages Pane. You can change the position of a page in the list by dragging the page to a new position. Tabbed pages are also part of the workflow sequence, but sub pages are not.

Tabbed pages (or tab splits): A tabbed page (or tab split) is a page with tabs, each of which, contains a page. For example, in the screenshot above, the tabbed page (indicated by Tab Split) is defined to have two tabs that contain, respectively, the pages Sales US and Sales EU. Tabbed pages are part of the page sequence that makes up the project's workflow.

Sub pages: A sub page is not part of the sequence of pages that make up the workflow of the project. It is similar to a module that is called by a control in a top page (or tabbed page). For example, an OnButtonClicked event of a Button control in a top page could use the GoToSubpage action to go to a particular subpage, and then return to the top page (or go to another page).  You can declare parameters and variables for a sub page by clicking its Add Parameters/Variables button.

Control templates: A control template resembles a page in that you can lay out a set of controls on it. It is called a template because it can be reused (with all its controls) on other pages. You can declare parameters and variables for a control template by clicking its Add Parameters/Variables button. See Control Templates (CTs) for more information.

 

Also see Pages, Tabbed Pages, and Sub Pages for more information about these kinds of pages..
