Definition

The current ad_field definition always assumes that an ad_field is backed by a column with a reference. In MP3 a new type of field was added (widget in form), which provided a bit more flexibility. Still an even more flexible solution is needed to allow much more freedom in integrating free-form javascript components in the form. Especially computed fields which can be implemented using client side logic can benefit from this development.

Supporting Window Personalization

Window personalization visualizes each field without a current record or form or backing grid. If the specific canvas is not able to be visualized in window personalization then on class level it should have the property: noPersonalizationVisualization, set to true. In that case window personalization should just display a box with an openbravo logo.

Note: although it can look strange, it should be possible to visualize a canvasitem in the statusbar also.
