I’d like to display or hide page elements based on page category.
There is a null Const in the Pages menu in the formulas workspace:
Due to the above Const being null, then also the correlated Context variable is always null:
I’d like to populate the page category Const so that it populates the Context variable so that I can utilize the latter in binding logic.
I can’t find the page category in the page properties panel:
Question: How can I populate the page category for app pages?
This property is not used anymore, it’s a legacy feature. We should remove it from the explorer.
Hi @aurelie, thanks for your reply. I’m not entirely sure why page categorization was phased-out, I can imagine that there could be some technical challenges at that level of logic abstraction, yet, applying page-level logic in binded-formulas would be a powerful gem
What you can do is having an object variable defining for each pageName (or id) the category you want, and then you will be able to access it quickly
That’s a wonderful and efficient/performant solution, one page can be in one category at a time, there can be as many categories as needed.
For the readers, this is how @aurelie 's description looks like on screen:
1. Creating an object variable:
Note: duplicate keys in the object default value will be merged and assigned to the latter value (it’s an array with unique keys).
2. Accessing the object and/or its key-paired values in formula editor:
Note: depending on the formula logic you have you can pull the whole object/array into the formula or any number of its key-value pairs.
