Page layout — Editing component metadata

We can see/edit the metadata of a component in the page layout from the page itself, without going to the API tab in the drawing tool.

  1. Open the page layout.
  2. Click the Edit Metadata icon on the right-hand-side.

    This opens the Edit Metadata dialog box.
  3. Let’s scroll down the code till we find the component we want. Say, an Input component with the developerName AlienArms.

    Now we change the metadata. For example, change isEditable to false from true.
  4. Click Save. If we do not want to change anything, we click Close.
Note:  If we have unsaved changes in the page layout, editing the metadata will override those changes.
