Control wizard

In Vinyl, Controls are containers that allow you to display data at the Application Layer on a Page within a Panel. Controls retrieve information from the Business Logic Layer.

New in 3.3, Vinyl introduces a Control Wizard to help automate the process of adding a control to a panel on a page. The Control Wizard steps you through adding a control to a panel. Once added, controls can easily be modified using the configuation options available.

Depending on the Control Type you are adding, the Wizard will prompt you for the appropriate information. See the Control types article for a list and description of all Control Types available.
