This field allows the developer to create a field for rating using stars (or any other image), where the final user can select a rate option.
Define the field type to Rating.
The Label option lets you define the title of a field. Example: If the database field name is “cmp_rating”, You can display a different name for the user, like “Product Rating”.
Besides use a fixed text, the Label attribute allows the use of Langs to define the field title, allowing the internationalization of your application.
Define the subtitle of the field, below the ratings. Example: “Thank you for your feedback!”.
As in the Label, the subtitle attribute also allows the use of Langs for the internationalization of your application.
Amount of icons
It defines how many icons it will display in the field. The value set in this attribute must be according to the evaluation rules.
The Stars evaluating uses five stars usually, so, we must inform 5 in this attribute. After we set the images to “Enabled” and “Disabled” icons, the results are like this:
To use Like/Dislike, for example, we must inform 1 in the number of icons to display only one image and change it according to the click. In this case, we want to store in database 1 for like (enabled icon) and 0 for dislike (disabled icon). You can see the example below:
Define the icon to show for the selected amount. Following the like/dislike example, in this option, we must insert the Like image. We must do the same for a star evaluation, where for default, we must insert the stars filled .
Define the icon to show for the not selected amount. In this attribute, we set an image to represent the opposite of the previous images set in the Enabled icon.
Still referring to the example of the Like/Dislike, in this attribute, we must set the Dislike. .
As in the stars example, we must insert the image with the empty stars .
Initial Value (type)
Allow the definition of an initial value for the field when the form application is in insert mode. The only option available in this field is Defined. Selecting this option the attribute Initial Value will be showed for set the value.
Example: The initial value is 3 when inserting a new record, the rate field will initiate with 3 stars already selected.
The value defined in this attribute will overlap any value defined previously.
It allows saving the value of the field in a session variable(Global variable) to use it in other applications. For example, you can save the user name in the login form and display its value on the header of other applications.
It allows setting the name of the session variable that will receive the field value.
We must inform only the variable name, - var_rating.
We can get the value as a global variable.
