A FactBox is a small selection of data related to the current record in the list page.
Three types of Factbox exist:
• Info part: This has its own data source and a number of controls. It is limited in what can be displayed. However it is simple and quick to create, and can also be displayed in the Enterprise Portal.
• Form part: This is a link to a form. The form can have the same controls as a standard form. However since this is displayed in the FactBox section of the list page, adding too many controls can crowd the part.
• Cues: This is a count of a number of records related to the current record in the list page. For example, it might show the number of outstanding invoices for a customer.
