Adding Fields Using Smart Context

In App Studio, the Report canvas uses smart context functionality to determine what column type a field should be, given the metadata of the field and/or the position of the field on the canvas.

Depending on the metadata of the field, and whether you have the smart context option turned on or off, fields that you add to your report will be added as either an aggregate, BY, SUM, or Detail.

The smart context options are contained in the App Studio Options dialog box, in the General tab, as shown in the following image.
