A way to show some simple extra data on a product, typically to help the user to identify the correct product. Basically a bucket of additional info that the ERP system would like to store and show in the user interface. Information placed here is shown in the GUI if the "provide-extra-data" capability is true.
Label for the field
Value for the field
String, image, url.
How the value should be interpreted.
To ensure that values in the
value field are correctly displayed according to the user’s culture setup, we have a little system for making this work correctly. You just wrap the values in  brackets with a format specifier, like this:
|double||F||Use period (.) as decimal separator||[F:123.45]|
|Money||M||Use period (.) as decimal separator||[M:123.98]|
This means that you can show several values in a field, like this:
- "Between [D:12/01/2012] and [D:12/25/2012] it is a [F:99.5]% chance of meeting a Santa Clause."
- "Should be used in temperatures between [F:-30.0]°C and [F:50.0] °C."
For example, with a Norwegian PC setup, the above will translate into the following:
- "Between 01.12.2012 and 25.12.2012 it is a 99,5% chance of meeting a Santa Clause."
- "Should be used in temperatures between 30,0°C and 50,0 °C."
