Types of Controls
The intuitive editor interface allows you to create complex datasheets and scripts by dragging and dropping controls. Read about using controls in the Customizing Datasheets and Scripts section.
Most of the controls must be used in conjuction with for example, database fields. When editing controls that fully rely on fields, you can create new fields directly on the editing interface.
List of standalone controls you can use without fields: text, box, table, placeholder, browser, button, play, email templates.
