How To Edit Layout?

November 30Hits:0

Hi,
I am very new to WebTools 2007.  Can someone give me a brief overview on how to change the layout of the various pages?  For example, can I graphically change the layout of the part detail page (partdetail.aspx) to move elements around and update the styles or do I have to do this with a text editor?  I can't seem to find any help for beginners to get 'started' on customizing the layout of an eCommerce site other than applying styles to the general layout and slots.
Thanks,
David

Hi David,
Always great to have more web developers working with webtools! I have a background very similar to yours. When it comes to things like modifying the partslist page is when webtools starts to get a bit more complicated for web based developers as opposed to application based developers. Webtools is written in C# (very similar to C) and much of the application is actually compiled into DLLs and these DLLs are copy written so the source is not available.
Some of the application is exposed, for example on the Partdetail.aspx page you will find many controls referenced that can be edited from the B1webtools/catalog/controls/ folder found under InetPub. The main thing to be careful of is not removing any controls from the page as often times these controls are being referenced by DLL running in the background. Instead you could set their visibility to false, something like this:
<asp:Literal ID="ltlPartDescription" runat="server" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.Description") %>' Visible="False"></asp:Literal>
So to answer your question, modifying the Partslist(other than removing columns) will involve building your own partslist using the API, but to edit partslist.aspx you can open up the partslist master page in a HTML editor and move things around or edit the individaul controls on the page.
Have you seen our demo themes at [www.businessoneecommerce.com]? The have modified master pages, but no modifications to the partslist or other hard coded areas of the application. Generally when i am modifying a theme, I tend to just edit the master pages to wipe out table formatting and add in divs and turn certain controls off, then i style the majority of the site with CSS.
Hope this helps.
James
