Information block sections

In this section

  • Filter
  • Context bar
  • List of sections
  • When creating an information block, you can set the block in the hierarchical mode so that a block contains not only elements, but also sections. The latter, in their turn, can contain sections and elements as well. For example, the Trading Catalog information block can contain a section Computer peripherals, that can contain sections Printers and Scanners.

    This form helps manage elements and sections of an information block.


    The filter is used to define one or more parameters to select sections to be displayed in the list.
