MaestroPreviously known as Transact Maestro. | Form Builder | v5.1 & Higher This feature is related to v5.1 and higher.
Fundamental to form design is the process of adding components to capture the data that is required to satisfy a Transaction Experience. The term component is the general name for anything that can be dragged from the Maestro Palette into a form. Components can be anything from an image, to a single data entry field, to a large complex reusable block. Components come in a variety of control types with different properties and behaviors. The available components are displayed in the Maestro Palette pane.
Components are organized within category folders. You can browse each category to find the component you want to use on your form, or you can use the search box at the top of the Palette.
At the top of the component list, you will find the favorites category. This category displays the most commonly used components. You can add or remove components from the favorite list based on your own personal preferences. The changes you make to the Favorites list will be stored in your Maestro account, not within the form. The components you add or remove to favorites will be displayed each time you open a form in Maestro.
Prior to Maestro v18.05, the View pane is called the Structure pane.
There are several ways to add a component to a form.
If you have multiple components to add, you can keep double-clicking – each new component is added below the previous component that was added.
Once you have added a component to a form, you can update its ID.
