Inserting an HTML Block

Edit a DataPage, navigate to the Configure Fields screen, click the Insert button at the bottom right corner of the DataPage Elements panel and select HTML Block.

Inserting Code

The HTML editor does its best to fix incorrect HTML code, but there may be times when you don’t want your code to be modified. To remove the HTML editor from your HTML block go to Advanced tab of an HTML block and disable the editor.

Advanced Options

If you have enabled Advanced Options and Parameters, you can use the picker button to insert various types of parameters such as data source fields, query string parameters, system parameters, authentication parameters or app parameters.
