Showing or Hiding Empty Custom Fields

Custom Fields


ChilliDB lets user to decide whether they want to display or hide empty custom fields on


their display page. Both System/inbuilt or Module Builder Modules on ChilliDB support


this function. Thus display page for any module can be customised on the basis of user


need or preferences.


System Module: For the System build modules like Contacts, Organisation, Events,


Notes, Membership and so on, this setting can be toggled via simple steps. To access


this customization, we simply need to go to the System Menu, and go to System


Management.


Once on System Management page, go to Manage System Configuration.


From Manage System Configuration, we have to find the Custom Fields Show Field Label


With No Value On Display Pages. We can find this simply by typing the keywords into the field and clicking 'Filter'. We must make sure that we have selected 'Items which can be


changed' from the Filter Dropdown List.



Whilst in settings, we can set the Value to True or False and then click 'Update'. This configuration setting determines whether custom fields with no value will be displayed in Display pages or not. False = Do not show fields label with no value. True = Show field labels regardless of whether the field has value or not. Default value = False.


Module Builder Module: For the Module Builder Modules, this setting can be


toggled via a few simple steps. We can customise any Module while building them, or by


managing (editing) them.



While building new module, we can check the Show all Field Labels checkbox to display all


the fields regardless of the values being assigned against them.


This configuration setting determines whether custom fields with no value will be


displayed in Display pages or not, and works similar to the System Setting. Unchecked =


Do not show fields label with no value. Checked = Show field labels regardless of


whether the field has value or not. Default value = Checked.



Once Created, this setting for Module Builder Modules can be accessed via a few simple


steps.


First, you need to go to the System Menu and click Custom Fields and then go to Module


Builder.


From the list of Modules available on Module builder display page, we have to click the module that we want to Maintain. And from Maintain page, we can choose to Check or Uncheck this setting. The setting will be reflected on that module once 'Update' button is clicked.
