Customizing table labels

This procedure explains how to customize the text for hyperlinks, buttons, and informational strings displayed in tables.

To customize table labels

Note

Tree views do not use label properties.

  1. Select the appropriate table field.
  2. In the Properties tab, set the following label properties.
    Properties that do not apply to the type of table that you are creating do not appear in the Properties tab.
    You can write strings in different languages for localized form views.
    To remove a button, function, or message string, clear the appropriate label value.

    Label properties

    PropertyLocationDescription
    Auto Refresh StringHeaderThe message that appears when the Alert Refresh Interval in the Web tab of the AR System User Preference form is set to a value greater than 0. This is an informational message only. The presence of this string does not enable or disable auto refresh. For more information, see BMC Remedy AR System installed forms.
    Delete ButtonFooterThe label for the alert delete button.
    Deselect AllFooterThe label of the hyperlink used to cancel all row selections. To use a select/cancel all check-box column in the table instead of the Select All and Deselect All buttons, see Adding a select all or cancel all check-box column to tables.
    Number of Entries ReturnedHeader

    The message that appears when data is loaded into the table. In forms viewed in a browser, the message is displayed in the table header. You can pass these parameters to this string:

    • {0} Starting row number
    • {1} Ending row number
    • {2} Total number of rows returned
    • {3} Maximum number of rows that can be returned
      If chunking is not enabled, this field defaults to "{2} entries returned -{3} entries matched".
      If chunking is enabled, this field defaults to "Showing {2} of {3} results".
      If content clipping is enabled, these parameters are passed to this string:
    • {0} Starting row number
    • {1} Row number of last visible row
    • {2} Total visible rows
    • {3} Maximum number of rows that can be returned
    PreferencesHeaderWhen a value is entered in this field, a button is added to the table header in a browser. The value becomes the label for the menu or the button. The default value is "Preferences." To disable table column preferences, clear the Preferences field. When this field does not have a value, no preference menu or button appears in the table field, and users cannot set preferences for the table. See Enabling users to customize columns.
    Read ButtonFooterThe label for the button used to mark an alert as read.
    Note: Available only in a browser.
    Refresh ButtonHeaderThe label for the refresh button. In mid tier 6.3.00 and later, the refresh button appears above the table to the right instead of in the footer as in earlier versions.
    Report ButtonFooterThe label for the report button.
    Row HeaderBodyThis property enables developers to specify a column that uniquely identifies the data in a row when a table is displayed in a browser. User assistive technology tools read out the content of the cells in the specified column to provide context for the other data in each row.
    Note: For the best results, specify the first column in the table.
    Select AllFooterThe label of the hyperlink used to select all rows. To use a select/cancel all check-box column in the table instead of the Select All and Deselect All buttons, see Adding a select all or cancel all check-box column to tables.
    Select Column LabelBody(Internet Explorer only) The column header that appears above the selection column in Accessibility mode. For all other browsers not in Accessibility mode, this property is ignored at runtime.
    Table Not Loaded StringHeaderThe message that appears when a table is initially displayed.
    UnreadFooter

    The label for the button used to mark an alert as unread.

    Note: Available only in a browser.

  3. Right-click the form, and select Save.
