1.2.1 Tasks

Events triggered after fields can trigger actions. These actions may consist of:

  • Blocking: user input is locked until task is completed.
  • Non-blocking: the task runs in the background, and user action can continue.

Non-blocking actions are referred to as jobs. As they may run for long periods of time, they can be inspected in the jobs console.

 

1.3 Screen Buttons

Onscreen buttons are used to enter commands.

By default, buttons are located at the bottom of the screen. However, if the device length is not sufficient, buttons will be placed along the right-hand side of the screen.

  • 4 Clear current group and return to the previous group.
  • 5 Validate current field and go to the next field input.
  • 6 Clear current field.
 

1.4 Group Buttons

A form group may have certain buttons associated with it. These buttons perform actions or redirect to other forms.

This button group is displayed at the top of the screen. If there are more than two buttons, the screen will hide all buttons after the first two, and a button will be used to reveal them.

 

1.5 Field Buttons
