The window offers advanced configuration options for the Data table form field.

2. Show form field name

Displays the form field name specified in the General tab.

3. Show form field description

Displays the form field description (checked by default).

4. Show columns names

Column headers display the “Display name” defined individually for each respective column (if the Display name column is empty, the column name returned by the query is displayed).

5. Show summary row

Allows the summary row to be displayed for individual columns. This row may either display the sum of values or their average. Click the Aggregation Type field for the desired column to define which mode is to be used.
