Sheets: Output Text Fields

Output Text fields are Sheet Elements that pull information from the database when filling out the form. For example, a time/date output field will auto-populate with the current date or a PracticeTitle field will populate with the practice name. If the sheet type is previewed prior to printing, you can edit output text on the generated form.

When Customizing a Sheet, click OutputText.

Field Name: A list of available output fields for the sheet type.

For a list of all output text fields and their definitions, see Output Text Fields Descriptions.

Font: These properties affect the appearance of the text.

Growth Behavior: This attribute can be set when it is not known ahead of time how large the output text will be. Setting the growth behavior causes a field to grow bigger; it will never cause a field to shrink. Click the dropdown to select an option:

X/Y Pos: Determines the placement of the upper left corner of the output field in relation to the x and y axis. X = horizontal, Y = vertical.

Width: The width of the output field. If the text output exceeds the width, information will span multiple lines.

Height: The height of the output field. If font size is large, the height may need adjusted so all text is visible.

Lock Text Editing: When checked, the output text fields cannot be edited when the form is open (e.g. by a patient).
