Sheet Output Text Field
Output Text fields are Sheet Field Types that pull information from the database when filling out the form.
When Edit Sheet Def, click OutputText.
For example, a time/date output field will auto-populate with the current date or a PracticeTitle field will populate with the practice name. If the sheet type is previewed prior to printing, you can edit output text on the generated form.
Field Name: A list of available output fields for the sheet type.
For a list of all output text fields and their definitions, see Output Text Field Names.
Font: These properties affect the appearance of the text.
Growth Behavior: This attribute can be set when it is not known ahead of time how large the output text will be. Setting the growth behavior causes a field to grow bigger; it will never cause a field to shrink. Click the dropdown to select an option:
X/Y Pos: Determines the placement of the upper left corner of the output field in relation to the x and y axis. X = horizontal, Y = vertical.
Width: The width of the output field. If the text output exceeds the width, information will span multiple lines.
Height: The height of the output field. If font size is large, the height may need adjusted so all text is visible.
Lock Text Editing: When checked, the output text fields cannot be edited when the form is open (e.g. by a patient).
