In my last blog post, you learned how easy it is to quickly create your first app. In this follow-up blog I want to show you how you can make some basic customizations to the app that was created in the previous post.
You can find my previous blog here:
In this post we are going to quickly cover the following customizations:
In this first image we can see that the name of the title on the screen has an underscore instead of a space. Secondly, we see that the default value of the expense amount is not consistent. We are going to quickly update each of these items.
Now we are going to update the currency formatting. To update formatting we are going to use the Text function and we will once again be working in the formula bar.
The formula is Text(ThisItem.Total, “$#,###.00”), see image below:
The final customization we will make is to set default values, this will make working and interacting with the app a much better experience. For example, the date will always default to the current date when adding new expenses.
I’m going navigate to appropriate screen by selecting the EditScreen1 from the Left Navigation bar, this will take me to the edit screen where we can edit existing records or create new records. This behavior of being able to edit or create new records is done through the Edit Form control. The form control is slightly unique because the controls inside the edit form are stored in cards and those cards are Locked! Let’s unlock the card so we can customize it:
As always, thanks for reading my blog.
