Global change of DSP field properties

Author: (osie_osie)

Hi All

Are there any methods to globally change the DSP widget field properties.

For example to make date fields to point to a date class or a certain colour.

There is a field 'control properties'  in the global update section but it does not seem to be the same thing.










  1. Hi Osie,

    AFAIK, these infos are held as a list in the repository.

    Well, seems not to be too hard to implement our own global updates in this area.

  2. See the E101 patch. Issue 29380. The Update Fields forms now enable you update DSP fields.

  4. Hi Barbara,

    That was quite handy... It is however only available for 9.5
