When designing your app, you often want to provide logic for when X happens do Y. Apps provides the ability for these dynamic actions:
- X is called an Event.
- Y is called a Rule.
Here are a few examples:
- When the "Submit deposit" button is clicked, run an automation.
- When the value of the "Cash In" textbox changes, change the label color to red if the value is < 0.
- When the help icon is clicked, open the browser to show a documentation page.
- When a tab button is clicked, change the page container to show a different page.
By specifying what rules to execute when an event occurs, your app transforms from being a simple display of information to an interactive console.
Events are triggers that happen when a user interacts with an app or control. Each control supports a single event:
|Clicked On||Button, Header, Label, Icon, Image|
|Value Changed||Checkbox, Date picker, Dropdown, Slider, Switch, Text Area, Textbox, List|
Rules allow your app to take an action when a certain event occurs. Below is a list of the rules that Apps provides:
|If-Then-Else||Provides support for conditional statements in the rules builder|
|Open a Page||Opens a page of the app as a pop-over or as the contents of a page container|
|Open URL||Opens a URL in the browser|
|Close Pop-Over/Bottom Sheet||Closes the current Pop-Over|
|Show Message||Show a message as a toast notification|
|Show/Hide Spinner||Show or hide a spinner overlay to show the app as busy|
|Set Values||Set the value of a property|
|Start Process||Starts an Automation|
|Rule: Upload file to Storage bucket||Uploads files to a selected storage bucket.|
|Rule: Get file from Storage bucket||Downloads files from a selected storage bucket.|
|Rule: Reset values||Reverts a control to a default value, or clears it if a default value is not configured.|
|Rule: Create/Update Entity Record||Create or updates an entity.|
|Rule: Delete Entity Record||Deletes an entity from Data Service.|
|Rule: Add to Queue||Adds an item to queue.|
You can reorder rules by clicking and dragging the "gripper" on the colored chip next to the rule's name:
