Defining the Bean Input Components

Start by creating the Manager First Name Bean Text Field view. Still in the view editor, click Add.
2
In the Add View dialog box that appears, on the Create a Blank View tab, choose Bean Inputs > Bean Text Field.
TIP: The Path To Value property is easily set because the only context passed to these components is a Manager type.

Create two more Bean Input components: the Manager’s Title Bean Drop-Down List and Manager’s ID Number Bean Number Input. Use the information provided below to populate the components’ values.

Defining the Grid Layout

This tutorial demonstrates the reduction in the number of context-required entries by using Bean Input components. Without them, context keys are required for all the fields in the Company structure. If this were a real application, with perhaps dozens of fields, the saving in overhead would be much greater.
