Editors are controls which allow you to view and edit a property of a particular data record. For example, in the Customer detail view, you will see text editors for first and last name properties, a date editor for the birthday property, along with many others. Some editors contain special functionality, such as the date editor, where clicking it will allow you to pick a date from a calendar, or an image editor, which will allow you to acquire an image from a file or your scanner or webcam. There are many different types of editors depending on the data type of the property.

Image Editors

When hovering over properties that store images or photos, special toolbars containing buttons will appear, allowing you to load or interact with the image.
