Apps User Guide
Last updated Feb 19, 2024



  • Tooltip - The text to be displayed when an app user hovers over the control. Use this to provide additional information on the control.
  • Data Source - The source of data you want to display in the table. Valid data types are Data Table and Object Array. Once you fetch the data source, the table automatically detects the data columns.
  • Columns - The table columns you want to display in the table. Expanding each Column heading exposes the following column properties:

    • Name - The display name of the column header. Gets populated automatically.
    • Source - The source of the referenced column.
  • Add new column - Add new columns to your data by clicking the plus "+" icon.

  • Hidden- If true, hides the control at runtime.
  • Disabled - If true, disables the control at runtime.
  • Sortable - If selected, the table columns can be sorted.


  • Value changed - Configure what happens when the value is changed.


  • Control Alignment - By default, it is set to Stretch. A different alignment can be set.

    Note: The alignment is dependent on the layout selected for the parent (Vertical vs Horizontal).
  • Background color - The background color for the Table header and Table body.

  • Border - The border for the control. Border Thickness, Color, and Radius can be configured.

  • Font - The font attributes for both the Column header and Column body text, such as font family, size, color, or style (Bold, Italic and Underline). By default, the control inherits the font family of the immediate parent container which is indicated by the keyword "Inherited".

  • Margin - The margin of the control. By default, a margin of 4px is set. Top/Bottom and Left/Right margin properties are combined. These properties can be detached using the Link button at the right side of the Margin section.

  • Size - The width and height of the control. By default, the Width is set to auto, and the Height is set to 200px. To set minimum or maximum values, click the three dot icon (...). If the size of the control is smaller than the options, a scroll bar is displayed.

Virtual scrolling enhances the performance by loading only the relevant items in the viewport at runtime. This only works when a height is configured and not set to auto.

If the Height property is set to auto, the size of the control at runtime and during design time may not match. This happens because the control height depends on the number of rows returned at runtime, while in design time the control is empty.

For any control with dynamic data, such as tables, dropdowns, or lists, we recommend configuring a fixed height for an improved performance.
