Subject Re: Customize UI screens in Ofbiz
Date Fri, 20 Jun 2014 15:43:38 GMT
Thanks all the quick responses and Anil for sharing the link it is very
helpful, As i have to change most of the forms/screens to limit the fields,
i will create a custom component in hot-deploy by extending the
corresponding Ofbiz OOTB component and will keep my customization here.
