Customizing opentaps Applications
Frequently you will need to customize opentaps applications, such as change the tabs or shortcuts at the top or add new screens. Beginning with opentaps 1.5, you can make these changes without affecting the core opentaps code, making it easier for you to upgrade later when new versions of opentaps becomes available.
opentaps 1.5 supports the following new features to help you customize its applications:
- The tabs and shortcuts available are now stored in the database, so you can rearrange or change the user interface labels.
- Other user interface elements are also now defined in configuration database entities.
- You can "inject" new controller entries into opentaps applications, making it possible to load your screens and actions into an opentaps application.
