Grids accept data and are widely used in Soft1, mainly as document lines. Active lines in grids are marked with a more intense colour. 

To enter data in the lines of a grid, place the cursor on the first line available and then use the magnifying glass (if available) or type the data directly into the line. To proceed to the next line, you may:

  • press Enter or
  • use your keyboard arrows or
  • place the cursor on the next line.

Grids and functionality

Right-click on a grid title to display the options available, similar to those that appear on browsers.

By right-clicking on the title of certain columns (e.g. "Code" or "Description"), you can input data from any browser. Follow the steps below:

  1. Right-click on the title of the "Code" or "Description" column. 
  2. Select "Browser data".
  3. Select the desired Browser and especially the items you wish to input in the grid.
