|Rules and examples|
Rules are client-side scripts (no-code business logic) that are executed when a user of the mobile app interacts with the app. The Cell Click rules are executed when an editable or clickable cell is clicked. Rules are managed using the rules editor, usually in Woodford.
Cell Click variables
- If false (default) the standard behavior is executed after the rule. If True, it is skipped.
Handled Assign False
- Controls how the changes to the entity are handled (if there are any).
- True and the entity is dirty after the rule executes, the entity is saved to storage (OnSave rule is run).
- False, if a property is changed the ChangeRule is run and the entity is added to the list of dirty entities to be saved on user command.
- Null (not-set, default), changes are ignored.
Example: message box with options
In this example, we make "Price" a clickable field on the "Real Estates" view. It displays a message box, and users can modify the price.
First, edit the view in question and make a field clickable:
Then, set up a Cell Click rule.
- "mbox" is a StringList type of variable. It must be populated with the message box options.
- "mboxchoice" is an integer variable that is filled when a user selects an option on the message box.
- Option "0" saves the record afterwards. Option "1" leaves it "dirty".
