Key flexfield and descriptive flexfield

Distinguish between key flexfield and descriptive flexfield.

Key FlexField is used for creating unique identifiers or constraints. It is the building block which defines the structure of objects. Key flexfields are flexible enough to let any organization use the code scheme they want, without programming. With the help of Key Fields an organization can define rules to specify which segment values can be combined to make a valid complete code (also called a combination).

Descriptive FlexField is used to create new fields on screen and capture other information. Also provides customizable “expansion space” on your forms. Descriptive flexfields can be context sensitive, where the information your application stores depends on other values that users enter in other parts of the form.

Key flexfields displays like text item but Descriptive FlexField displays like arrays. Key flexfields gives the result after simple entry of data and Descriptive FlexField is user dependent whic means when user want to get output.
