If a form element is used for mapping lists, the items are displayed with their names. You can jump to the referenced object by clicking on the entry with the mouse.
To prevent navigation to the referenced object, set the configuration switch on the menu item to Ignore user interface forms in result list. This is useful if, for example, forms are not defined for some objects in the result list. Otherwise, an empty form is displayed.
The color and positioning of the form elements on the overview as well as the properties that are shown, are specified by layout information for the menu items. You can modify these properties for predefined overview forms as well.

All other form elements get their object definitions from the menu items. When a link is configured, the selected columns of the referenced menu item are initially copy to the link. The order of displaying the properties in a form element corresponds to the column sort order defined in the menu item.
You can use scripts in the column definitions to affect the value displayed in the column. The column definition is activated when you click and hold on the column name. Extend the column definition as follows:
