|Linkage Mode|| Sets Linkage Mode, which determines how the Active Entity is treated when attached to an element. The available linkage modes and their characteristics are summarized in the table.
After you choose a Linkage Mode, it is displayed in the status bar. When Linkage Mode is changed, the Active Entity must be redefined.
|Forms|| If set to Text Screen, the database screen forms tool is enabled in Promis.e
. This option menu is dimmed if the database interface is not configured. If set to None (the default), the screen forms tool is disabled in Promis.e
: The Review Database Attributes of Element tool uses the SQL SELECT statement specified in the sqlreview column of mscatalog, and the displayable attribute loading tools use the SQL SELECT statement specified in the sqldas column of the displayable attribute table.
|Displayable Attribute Type|| An integer value that identifies the SQL SELECT statement or the screen form for loading displayable attributes in a text node linked to a database row. The mapping between displayable attribute types, SELECT statements, and screen forms is in the displayable attributes table. A value of zero disables displayable attribute typing of text nodes.
|Delete Linked Database Rows|| If on, database rows are deleted when linked elements are either deleted with the Delete Element or Delete Fence Contents tool or rows are detached with the Detach Database Linkage or Detach Database Linkage from Fence Contents tool.
|Confirm Rows|| If off (the default), when you use the Attach Displayable Attributes tool or the Define Active Entity Graphically tool, Promis.e
operates upon the first database row attached to the identified element. Frequently, only one row is attached to each element.
If on, Promis.e displays each database row sequentially and waits for you to accept one.
