Highlight (Showcase/Idea): Tile View

In most data-centric scenarios the tabular view is very suitable. There are use cases where I would like to have a tiled view. Even better would be if the user could choose. For some time now I have been programming something like this as an extension to AppGini. This is the current state I would like to show you. Please give me feedback what you think and if you are interested in such an extension. Card contents In this tile view i don’t want to see all columns, but only certain data. I also want to modify the display, for …

Highlight: Styled buttons and additional buttons in children tab of detail view

Today I would like to present an idea that I can definitely use in my own projects: additional buttons in children tab tables. Yes, buttons for the tables at the bottom of detail views. Problem I don’t know about you, folks, but I personally don’t really like the button to open a child record in a modal window especially for UI and UX reasons.

Every state has been rendered as slot and therefore is available as drop-target. Additional states can be added, of course.

Highlight: Additional HTML content in Table View

Description You will know this from your E-Mail software: Preview of the message right inside in the list of emails. Wouldn’t it be great to have it in AppGini lists, too? For a tasks-table I wanted to show the task-subject and -description inside the table view. And this is the first draft: Next to a few additional buttons (see showcase here) there is a custom HTML text below every row. Showcase Code I have wrapped everything into an easy-to-use function which I am going to use in more tables in the future. Just by initializing the onEveryRow function (so called …
