Short video describing how to render your existing structure strings in SharePoint lists using the JChem Linked Structure field.
Welcome to the third training video of the JChem for SharePoint Installation and Usage series.
This episode will show and explain how to render the existing structures from a SharePoint list using the JChem Linked Structure field.
The first step is to create two custom lists with IUPAC names and SMILES structures. Give them friendly names.
Go to the list with IUPAC names and add three items: Benzene, Naphtalene and Anthracene.
Add a JChem Linked Structure column and set the Structure format to IUPAC and the drawing settings as desired.
Specify the source column - the column containing the IUPAC structures.
Save and return to the list.
The newly added column renders correctly images for the specified IUPAC strings.
Go to the list with the SMILES. Add a new text column where you will be storing the SMILES string.
Add here also the three items specified before: Benzene, Naphtalene and Anthracene.
Add a new JChem Linked Structure column to the SMILES list.
Specify the source column - the column containing the SMILES structures.
Set the Structure format to SMILES and change the rendering style to Wireframe with knobs.
Save the column and return to the list.
The SMILES structures are also rendered correctly with different drawing settings.
The Linked Structure columns have another setting which allows editing an existing structure string by using the Structure Editor.
Navigate to the JChem Linked Structure column and edit its settings.
Choose to Allow editing.
Save and go back to the list.
Edit the Benzene and transform it into Chlorobenzene.
Notice how the SMILES text updates as soon as you edit the structure in the editor.
Finally, save the item and view the changes.
