Page block reference

Refer to accessing Corteza  query language for details on how to filter multi-value fields.

Automation

The automation page block allows you to show automation with manual triggers.

…​

The automation page block allows you to use both automation scripts and workflows.

If you can’t see your automation scripts make sure:
  • there were no compilation errors,

  • you refreshed your page after you’ve added the scripts,

  • the trigger defined a .uiProp('app', 'compose') constraint.

If you can’t see your workflows make sure:
  • there are no errors in the workflow,

  • the workflow has an onManual trigger,

  • the workflow is enabled.

Calendar

A calendar page block allows you to show events from different event sources in a calendar.

…​ …​

Supported calendar views:
  • month view

  • week view

  • day view

  • agenda view

Calendar page blocks support two event sources; reminders and records.

The reminders event source allows you to show your reminders as a calendar event.

The records event source allows you to show a record as a calendar event. This allows you to have a module for storing tasks which you can then show on the calendar.

When using records, you can define a pre-filter, which allows you to show only specific records. Refer to the QL reference for details.

The calendar page block pre-filter supports value interpolation.

Chart

The chart page block allows you to display a pre-configured chart on your page. Refer to Low Code configuration for more details.

…​

Content

The content page block allows you to show static content on the page. This can be an important announcement, a how-to guide, or any other piece of information.

…​

File

The file page block allows you to upload static files such as a TOS, a work schedule, or a brochure to the page.

…​

The attachment is static and does not change based on the current context.

Table 1. Additional configurations:

View mode

Defines how the files are presented when they are being viewed.

DevNote list & describe the available options.

IFrame

The iframe page block allows you to embed an external website into your application.

Make sure to keep any iframe embedding limitation in mind.

…​

Metric

The metric page block allows you to display a calculated numerical value based on the data in your namespace. This is usually an indicator important to your process. It may be information such as the total finances in your sales pipeline or the current number of open accounts.

…​
Table 2. Additional configurations:

Label

Defines what the metric shows. The label doesn’t define any value restrictions, nor is it required.

Dimension module

Defines what records will be used when computing the metric.

Dimension filter

Defines how to filter the records when computing the metric. Refer to the QL reference for details.

The filter supports value interpolation.

Metric field

Defines what numerical field is to be used when computing the metric. Each module has a system-defined count field, which represents the total number of records conforming to the specified filter.

Aggregation operation

Specifies how the values are aggregated when the metric is computed. You can pick one of the count, sum, max, min, or avg functions.

Value transformation

Allows you to define how the result of the metric is transformed before shown in the page block.

Value transformation expressions are written as simple JavaScript expressions that return a single number based on the two variables.

DevNote provide some more insight into this.

Format

Defines the format string that is used when displaying the metric. The field supports all of the numeral.js formatting options.

The format is applied before the prefix and suffix.

Prefix

Adds the specified prefix to the resulting metric before it is shown in the page block. For example, the prefix of $ and the value of 1000 would result in the label of $1000.

Suffix

Adds the specified suffix to the resulting metric before it is shown in the page block. For example, the suffix of USD/h and the value of 1000 would result in the label of 1000USD/h.

Style

Allows you to define the visual aspects of how the metrics are shown.

Record list

The record list page blocks allow you to display records in a table. Record lists also provide the features for adding, importing, and exporting records.

When using the search box on the record list, the system only includes the selected fields.

…​

You can trigger explicit automation scripts within the record list’s header. Click the "Automation" tab to select the automation scripts.

Allow inline record editing

Allows you to create, edit, and delete records directly from the record list when the containing record page is in edit mode.

This option is only available for record pages.

Hide add record button

Hides the + Add record button, which prevents you from adding new records from the user interface.

This does not prevent the records from being created if accessed from another user interface or by an automation.

Pre-filter records

Defines the pre-filter that is used when searching and displaying records on the record list. Refer to the QL reference for details.

Hide search box

Hides the search input box, which prevents you from applying additional filters to the record list.

The presort is applied regardless of this option.

Records per page

Defines the maximum number of records that can be shown on a page.

Hide paging

Hides the paging controls from the record list, which prevents you from navigating between different pages.

Modifies the previous/next page controls to include a list of available pages, which allows easier navigation between pages.

It is advisable that you disable this option when the module contains a large number of records.

Show total record count

Shows the total number of records that conform to the defined filters.

We suggest you disable this option when the module contains a large number of records.

Allow records export

Enables the record export option and defines the Export button in the header of the record list.

Allow record selection

Adds a series of checkboxes on the record list, which allows you to perform operations over a selection of records.

Hides the edit record button, which prevents you from opening the record editor directly from the record list.

When the feature is enabled, the record editor can be opened by clicking on the edit icon next to the record.

Hide record view button

Hides the view record button, which prevents you from opening the record viewer directly from the record list.

When the feature is enabled, the record viewer can be opened by clicking on the view icon next to the record.

Record organizer

The record organizer page blocks allow you to define a series of columns (stages) that the record of a given module may reside in. The records are moved around using the drag-and-drop interface.

A single record organizer page block defines one column. Add additional record organizer page blocks to define additional columns.

…​
Table 4. Additional configurations:

Module

Defines the module that the record list is to use when interacting with records.

Record sort field

Defines what field is used to define the order of the records. When a record is repositioned, all of the related records change the value of the fields to represent the new order.

Key field

Defines what field is used to define what column the record is in. When a record is repositioned, the value of the given field changes to represent the new state.

Key value

Defines what value the key field must have to be shown in a given column.

Record

The record page block allows you to display the contents of the records on the record page. When creating or editing the record, record page blocks provide a way of input or manipulation of the values.

Record page blocks are available only on record pages.

…​

You can define multiple record page blocks for the same record page, which allows you to group corresponding things together.

Social media feed

The social media feed page block allows you to embed a specified feed directly into your application.

Currently, only Twitter feeds are supported.

When added on a list page, the specified feed is provided as a fixed URL address.

When added on a record page, the specified feed is provided either as a fixed URL address or as a URL field. Using a module field instead of a fixed value allows a social media feed to change depending on the context.
