Changing Names in MEX

Changing names in MEX has been simplified. All you need to do is click and change.

Every label that has been changed will have a small red button with a red x above it. This is the reset button for that label. Clicking it will reset the label to its original text.

Customising Made Simple

With God Mode comes the full power of customising your MEX system with the drop of a hat. God Mode lays out a grid for you to work in and gives you a whole list of controls to add to any list or form in MEX.

  • Start by clicking Custom Fields in the God Mode Menu
  • A green grid will appear over all available areas inside the form and areas you can add a control to. Please note that for lists the custom control will be added to the right of all existing columns.
  • Controls available for use are
    • Text Box
    • Currency
    • Date
    • Time
    • Number
    • Number with Decimals
    • Percent
    • Check Box
    • Label
    • Drop Down
    • Data Driven Field
    • Signature
    • Map
    • Image
    • Document
    • Ellipses
    • Custom Control

Custom Field Options on God Mode

  • Simply drag a control onto the Grid
  • Resize the control by clicking and dragging the edges
  • Give the control a Field Name to be referenced in the database for any reporting you need to do.
  • Set a label for the control
  • And you’re done.
  • Simply turn off the control, exit out of the form or list and reopen it to see your new custom control in action.

Deactivating a God Mode Feature

In order to allow you to get out of a God Mode option and back to using MEX, you must deselect the option you have been working in. For example, if you are using Change Names. Click on the Change Name option highlighted in red on the God Mode menu and this will deactivate it.
