The sequence for the value starts with 1.
If a field is customized, but no row value is defined, the field is automatically displayed as the last field on the screen.
|fullrow||Its value is 1 (fullrow:1).
By default, if no x or w value is defined, the given field is displayed in its full width. If you define the x or w value for a field and no other field should be positioned next to it, the fullrow value can be used (see example below).
|lines||the number of extra lines to be added to the screen, only for DataRepeater
