Description

This Standard Choice configures the visibility of tabs at the top of the home page and defines the page that displays when users click a tab.

You can enter any text in a Standard Choice Value to represent a tab, for example:

Home

Building

APO

Licenses

ServiceRequest

The Value Desc field defines the page that each tab (Standard Choice Value) directs to. Add the value description in the following format:

label=[info], order=[info], role={info], url=[info], module=[module name], tabvisible=[info], blockvisible=[info].

Of the values:

  • Label determines the tab name.

    • To display the Home tab, set the label to aca_sys_default_home

    • To display the general information tab, set the label toaca_sys_apo_search]

    • To display a module tab, set the label to aca_sys_default_module_name. The label gets the tab name from the module value in the value description.

  • order=[Enter the numeric order of display] 0 is first.

  • role=[0, 1, or 0|1] Specify whether the tab displays on registered user pages (the Welcome Registered page), anonymous user pages (the Welcome Global page) or both. Type 0 for Registered User pages only, 1 for Anonymous Users pages only, or 0|1 for both registered and anonymous user pages.

  • URL=[Provide the URL for the tab]

    Which URL to enter depends on which feature you want to make available to users when they click the tab. For the association between features and URLs, see Table 2.

    If you assign the URL to the Search Applications feature which directs to the module home page, you can add the following parameters in the URL to further customize the module page that displays when users click the tab:

    • $ShowMyPermitList$. If the parameter value is Y or undefined, the My Permit List section displays on the module home page. If the parameter value is N, the section hides.

    • $SearchType$. This parameter defines the default search options of the Record Search section on the module home page.

      • SearchType=NULL: The Record Search section applies the first search option as the default search option.

      • SearchType=None: The Record Search section hides the whole search section.

      • SearchType=General: The Record Search section applies the general search as the default search option.

      • SearchType=ByAddress: The Record Search section applies the Search by Address as the default search option.

      • SearchType=ByLicense: The Record Search section applies the Search by License as the default search option.

      • SearchType=ByPermit: The Record Search section applies the Search by Permit as the default search option.

      • SearchType=ByTradeName: The Record Search section applies the Search by Trade Name as the default search option.

      • SearchType=ByContact: The Record Search section applies the Search by Contact as the default search option.

  • module=[Provide the module name]

  • tabvisible=[Yes or No] Yes indicates the tab is visible at the top of the home page. No indicates there is no tab at the top of the home page.

  • blockvisible=[Yes or No] Yes indicates you want the module features to be available in the block sections at the bottom of the welcome pages. No indicates you want to hide the block section for the module features.
