New high-density headers have been introduced for Dynamics 365 Entity Forms as part of 2019 Release Wave 2 for Unified Interface.

Let us try to understand various settings available for it

Log in to

https://make.powerapps.com/

select the environment, and select Data à Entities à Forms

Click on Edit Header Density to open the properties section for the Header. This setting is only available in the new form model app form designer.

Let us first uncheck High density option and see how it renders in the Contact Main Form.

Result:

  • The first 3 fields appear on the form within the Header section and the remaining 6 fields appear in the flyout section of the header.
  • The editable fields are rendered as editable and read-only fields as read-only.

On resizing the browser, the fields in the header are rendered in the Summary tab.

Now let us check with only High-density option enabled

Result:

Only the first 4 fields appear, there is no fly out section and all the fields are read only.

On resizing the browser, the fields in the header are rendered properly.

Now let us check with both the options enabled

Result:

The 4 fields appearing in the form are still read-only.

However, we can see all the fields being available in the flyout section both editable as well as read-only.

On resizing the browser, the fields in the header are rendered properly

Along with the flyout section

Thus, based on the total number of fields and types of fields i.e. read-only or editable, we can select the appropriate options of rendering for the Header in the new Unified Interface.

Meanwhile, the headers in our legacy web client
