Dynamic Status Indicators
Hey there, Tadabase users! Welcome to another episode of Build It with Tim. Today, we've got an exciting and super quick tip for you - how to add dynamic status indicators to your application. These nifty indicators will not only add visual flair but also provide essential information directly to your users. So let's dive in and see how you can achieve this in just a couple of minutes.
To get started, all you need is some data that you want to compare against a specific value or check if it matches certain criteria. For example, let's say you have a list of products and their current inventory levels. We'll use this data to demonstrate our dynamic status indicators.
First, head to your Tadabase page builder and add a new page. Name it, say, "Products," and add it to your existing layout and menu. Now, choose the table component to display your products. Inside the table component, click on any field to access the field editor. The magic feature we're going to use is called "Display Rules."
Display rules can be applied at the field level and are incredibly versatile. You can find them in various places within the Tadabase platform, including form components. However, for this example, we'll focus on using them inside the table component.
Let's say you want to create a status indicator for the inventory field. You can easily do this by adding a new display rule and defining its conditions. For instance, you can set a rule that says, "If inventory is lower than a thousand but higher than 800, change the background color to a soothing light green and add a checkmark icon to indicate that the inventory level is okay."
And here comes the cool part - you can continue adding more rules to make the status indicator even more dynamic based on the actual field value. For example, if the inventory is higher than 500 but lower than 800, let's make it eye-catching orange and display a warning sign. This will let you know that the inventory is getting low, and it's time to consider reordering.
Finally, to give a clear signal for urgent action, add another rule stating that if the inventory is higher than zero but lower than 500, make it striking red. This means it's time to reorder immediately!
As you modify the inventory value, the status indicator will automatically change in real-time based on the rules you've defined. This feature is perfect for keeping track of inventory levels, product statuses, or any other data that requires immediate attention.
And there you have it! A super quick and incredibly useful tip on building dynamic status indicators with Tadabase. We hope you enjoy using this feature to enhance your applications and provide your users with a more engaging experience.
