Address Field

The address field control is used to display and edit addresses in a standardized way. Using the address control you can visualize the address in text or on a map. The layout of the address field is defined based on country setup in Basic Data Address Presentation, and is available for sections, lists, cards, and selectors.

The address field control is a variant of the field.

When to use

An address field as the name suggests can be used anywhere you need to visualize and edit an address; for example, to locate a customer, work order, object, company, etc.


If the address field is based on a reference then it cannot be edited. Also attributes from multiple references cannot be mapped to an address field.

How to use

Add the address field control as you would a Field inside the client model. The address field has 12 columns to which the relevant address attributes from the entity can be mapped. You can also map columns from a references. Note: The columns must all be from the same reference (see example 2).

field field1;  
   address1 <address1_attribute>;  
   address2 <address2_attribute>;  
   address3 <address3_attribute>;  
   address4 <address4_attribute>;  
   address5 <address5_attribute>;  
   address6 <address6_attribute>;  
   city <city_attribute>;  
   country <country_attribute>;  
   county <county_attribute>;  
   state <state_attribute>;  
   zipcode <zipcode_attribute>;  
   countrycode <countrycode_attribute>;  




Below is a list of properties that can be used to customize the control.

editable | filterlabel | label | searchable | showlabel | size | visible


Below are some examples of how address fields can be implemented.

Example 1

selector AddressSearchSelector for AddressSearchQuery {  
   addressfield {  
      address1 Address1Search;  
      address2 Address2Search;  
      address3 Address3Search;  
      address4 Address4Search;  
      address5 Address5Search;  
      address6 Address6Search;  
      city CitySearch;  
      country CountrySearch;  
      county CountySearch;  
      state AddrStateSearch;  
      zipcode ZipCodeSearch;  
      countrycode CountryCodeSearch;  
      label = "Address";  
   static CustomerIdSearch;  
   static LocationIdSearchA;

Example 2

Below is an example of the address field using a reference.

group DetailsGroup for JtTaskResource{  
   addressfield {  
      address1 AddressReference.Address1;  
      address2 AddressReference.Address2;  
      address3 AddressReference.Address3;  
      address4 AddressReference.Address4;  
      address5 AddressReference.Address5;  
      address6 AddressReference.Address6;  
      city AddressReference.City;  
      country AddressReference.CountryCode;  
      county AddressReference.County;  
      state AddressReference.State;  
      zipcode AddressReference.ZipCode;  
      countrycode AddressReference.CountryCode;  
      size = Small;  
      visible = [AddressReference.AddressId != null];
