Making Pretty Page Text with HTML Areas

By Chris Malek | Wed, Oct 13, 2010

Do you want to give your users readable formatted messages and instructions? You should use an HTML Area page field type tied to a long character field.

The following three style classes get me by 95% of the time.

  • PAPAGETITLE
  • PAPAGEINSTRUCTIONS
  • PSERRORTEXT

I always use these in a div html element.

Page instructions like this can be invaluable on a run control record. I often put in important instructions like what happens if there is errors or where log files are written. I might also put some “gotchas” about the process like if it can be re-run if there are errors.
