Set External Context


You can set up an external context when launching your application. This is especially helpful when starting an app from somewhere else, for example a robotic process automation (RPA) process.

  1. Open your already existing application or start a new one.
  2. Create two new app variables, FirstName and LastName.
  1. Add two new Texbox controls to your app and bind the variables created at step 2 to each textbox. Bind the FirstName variable to the first textbox, and the LastName variable to the second textbox.
