Cell

  • Name
    Here you give the element a name. This name is only used within appdoo. For example, you can quickly see in the outline where each Cell is located. You can also edit the name by double-clicking on the List View in the outline. We recommend that you assign unique names when working with Layout Constraints and Data Links.

  • Background Color
    Here you define the background color of your Cell.

  • Use a Navigation Target
    In addition to displaying values in the Cell, you may also want to allow the user of your app to navigate further. For example, from an images gallery to a detail page. To realize this, the checkbox “Use a Navigation Target” must be activated. You can then select which existing screen is to be called.

    If you have activated this option, then you can of course reach the selected target screen within appdoo with a single click. The cell itself should not be selected. If the Collection View or nothing is selected and you move the mouse pointer over a cell of the Collection View, a button (circle) with an arrow is displayed on the right side. Clicking on this button takes you directly to the target screen.

    If a data source is used for the content of the Colection View, then the corresponding data record of the cell is also passed to the next screen with this click and is available there in the list of elements as “Context-sensitive data”.
