Collaboration and user comments

Any application component can be set to allow users to post comments on any record.

This is done setting Evolutility web control property UserComments to one of the following values:

  • None
  • Read only
  • Logged Users
  • Anonymous


Database pre-requisite

The database table must have a column "CommentCount" (of type int) to support comments.

By default, comments are saved in the database table “Evol_Comment” but another table can be specified using the attribute dbtablecomments in the XML. Other specifications are possible with dbcommentsformid and dbcommentsuserpage.

More information on Database pre-requisites for Evolutility.

Comments on record (if any) are displayed on the bottom of the page with a text box to post new comments:


Records with comments are flagged.

Search & Advanced search

Records can be filtered by comments.
