  3. In the layout header, click the View properties icon.

    1. In the Source field, select Property.
    2. In the List field, specify the property with which you want to populate the layout.
    3. Optional: To delay loading data that is not visible in the initial display, in the Defer load activity field, select the activity that defines when to load the data.
    Report definition (non-optimized tables only)
    1. In the Source field, select Report Definition.
    2. In the Applies To field, specify the class of the report definition.
