PreferencesPlugin usage

Hi,

I am trying to use the PreferencesPlugin but I can't understand how.

I saw the EDITPREFERENCES field and I think that it is used combined with a data form.=

Could you please give an example of how to use the PreferencesPlugin together with a data form?

Thanks in advance!

Answer

DataFormTopic

| *Name*  | *Type* | *Size* | *Values* |
| Priority | select | 1 | High,Normal,Low |
| Urgency | select | 1 | Nominal,Elevated,Critical |

SettingsTopic

   * Set Priority = 
   * Set Urgency = 
   * Set TeamLeader = 
%EDITPREFERENCES{"DataFormTopic"}%

In this scenario the Priority and Urgency setting will render as dropdowns where the user can select from the values listed in the when the "Edit Preferences" button is pressed and the TeamLeader will be rendered as the default textbox.
