Object Type: Output Object


A WebPage object provides output on a website. For each seperate webpage of your web-application you can define a WebPage object. Within the properties of the WebPage you can define its layout.



The AutoPrint property has 'True' and 'False' as possible values. If the value is 'True', then a print screen will be directly opened when entering the WebPage, so that the page can be printed directly.

DebugLogMode (from version 4.1)

Indicates the level of detail of debug information that is logged during runtime of the website to the trace, a logfile, a database etc. The possible values are:

  • None: no debug information is logged
  • Simple: only basic information is given
  • Extended: in addition to the information in the Simple mode the values of all the properties of the object are shown


Possible values are 'True' or 'False'. If the value is 'False', then the object can only be used within the document where it is created. If the value is 'True', then also from other Futurama documents can be referred to this object. This means that changes in the object also affect the document in which is referred to this object. If the value is 'True' and you attempt to move or delete the object, a warning will be given. To limit these warnings to a minimum it is recommended to set IsPublic to 'True' only when necessary.


Possible values are 'True' or 'False'. If the value is 'True', the object will be rendered and therefore displayed in your application. If the value is 'False', the object will not be rendered.


The name of the object as it is shown in the source of the website. By default the XmlName is equal to the name given in the property (Name) with spaces replaced by underscores, but you are free to change it.


The name of the object.


Here a comment can be entered. For example a short description of the object.


The unique identification number of the object. This number is automatically generated by Futurama on the moment of creation. This number can be used when searching for a certain object in the Find Window.


This is an automatic property indicating if the object is referred to as an UpdatePanel. Possible values are 'True' or 'False'.


Here the CssClass can be entered. In the stylesheet you can define the style elements that belong to this class.


Here you can define or refer to the stylesheet that should apply to the WebPage. In this stylesheet, the layout of the WebPage is defined.


With this property you can create a reference to an XmlBuilder that contains data that you can reference in the webpage. For example, if the XmlBuilder contains an element with type string and the name Name and the value “E. Xample” you can include in any string on the webpage {{PageData:Name}} and it will be replaced by “E. Xample”.

If the the XmlBuilder contains an element of type boolean with name testCondition then you can you create a text like: "This is a a teststring with {{if:PageData:testCondition}}Value if true{{/if}}"

From Futurama 19.04 it is also possible to define a array within the PageData XmlBuilder. This for example can be used in combination with a WebListBox (see WebListBoxIndex section of the WebListBox).


A WebPage is not rendered explicitely, as the content of the webpage is defined within the default BODY-code. It is possible however to define the layout of the WebPage (for example configuring margins). This can be done using the CssClass property. The CssClass entered will be rendered as the class of the BODY.

Beware that the rendering of objects depends on the DocType selected for your Futurama Document. The rendering mentioned above is based on the DocType XHTML_1_0. If your using the old DocType HMTL4_Transitional, please consult the Document page for further information.

Opening the WebPage directly in WebMode

It is possible to open a specific webpage directly in WebMode. For example when you have an application Test within the folder localhost/Futurama. This application is called upon with the URL http://localhost/Futurama/?Folder=Test. Suppose you have a specific WebPage within your application with the ID is 12, and you want to display this page. This can be done using the URL: http://localhost/Futurama/?Folder=Test&page=12.
