Grid Layout in NAV 2013.

Hi All,

A new Page Designer concept has been introduced in NAV 2013, i.e. Grid Layout.

This concept provides us a little facility for placing of control in the page.  Let’s try to work on same.
Below is the how Standard Customer Page look like.

I would like to save some space which is being used by multiple Data Fields. Like Post Code, Country/ Region Code & State Code.

I want all these three fields in one Row, so that some space can be saved.

Below is the standard Page Designer –

Here are the steps -
        1)      Before Post Code I will add a grid Layout Group.  
        2)      After Grid Layout Add a Group. [Indented it to above Row]
        3)      Indent fields Post Code, Country/ Region Code and State Code to Above Row.

The Layout Should Look Like –

Now Go to Grid Layout Properties and set Layout to Rows.

Let’s see the preview of page now.

Now if I want to give name to this whole group as something Just Set the caption Property of Group.  Suppose I set it to Other Address Details.

In NAV 2013, we can also hide the caption of the fields that are being displayed. To set that property I went to properties of Post Code, Country/Region Code and State Code.

I set the property of ShowCaption as No.

Let’s Save the page and see how the final page looks like.

If you still have some issues, download the Fob for the same From - Skydrive Folder.

File Name - Grid Layout NAV 2013.

The Object is with ID 50001.
