Defining Auto-generated HTML presentations

Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge provides a default HTML presentation for Start and Activity worksteps, automatically generated at runtime in Business Process Portal. For instance, the Assignment sample application uses the auto-generated format.
Business Process Portal uses the Header options and dataslots specified in the workstep’s Properties view (see Using the Fields tab of Start workstep properties). In addition to Header options that include the Instruction and Priority fields directly under the heading, Business Process Portal also displays fields corresponding to the read-only and editable dataslots specified in the Fields tab in the workstep’s Properties view. In the figure above, the Task name, Assignee, Priority, Due Date, and Instructions boxes are editable; that is, you can enter data in these fields and the data is passed on to the next workstep.
Note: If you enter a file name without an extension for the HTML type, Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge automatically adds the .html extension.
