  • You can use the Action Sheet UI Patterns to add a menu that slides from the bottom of the screen when triggered by a user action.

    How to use the Action Sheet UI Pattern

    1. In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for Action Sheet.

      The Action Sheet widget is displayed.

      If the UI widget does not display, it may be because you used a ready-made app, which deletes unused widgets from the module. To make additional widgets available in your app:

      a. Go to Module > Manage dependencies.

      b. Search for and select the relevant Producer, for example OutSystemsUI. Ensure Show All is selected.

      c. On the Public elements for the selected Producer displayed on the right, ensure Show All is selected.

      d. Search for and select the element you want to add, and click Apply.

      e. In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for the widget again.

    2. From the Toolbox, drag the Action Sheet widget into the Main Content area of your application's screen.

      By default, the Action Sheet widget contains 5 button placeholders.

    3. Add the relevant content to the Button placeholders. In this example, we add buttons that navigate to other pages when clicked.

    4. Add a local variable. In this example, we call the variable IsOpened.

    5. Select the Action Sheet pattern, and on the Properties tab, set the IsOpen property to the new local variable (in this example, IsOpened).

    6. To open the Action Sheet menu, we add a button and on the Properties tab, from the OnClick dropdown, select New Client Action.

    7. Add an Assign to the client action and set the IsOpened local variable to True.

    8. To close the Action Sheet menu, on the Properties tab, from the Handler dropdrown of the OnClose event, select New Client Action.

    9. Add an Assign to the client action and set the IsOpened local variable to False.

    After following these steps and publishing the module, you can test the pattern in your app.

    Properties

    Property Description
    IsOpen(Boolean): Mandatory Assign a variable open/close the Action Sheet.
    ExtendedClass Adds custom style classes to the Pattern. You define your custom style classes in your application using CSS.

    Examples

    • Blank - No custom styles are added (default value).
    • "myclass" - Adds the myclass style to the UI styles being applied.
    • "myclass1 myclass2" - Adds the myclass1 and myclass2 styles to the UI styles being applied.
    You can also use the classes available on the OutSystems UI. For more information, see the OutSystems UI Live Style Guide.
