You can use the Animate UI Pattern to create animations within your app. This UI pattern allows you to emphasize elements as they appear on screen which enhances the overall usability of the app.
How to use the Animate UI Pattern
In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for
The Animate 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.
From the Toolbox, drag the Animate widget into the Main Content area of your application's screen.
By default, the Animate widget contains a Content placeholder.
Add the content you want to animate to the Content placeholder.
In this example, we add an image by dragging the Image widget into the Content placeholder, and on the Properties tab, from the Image dropdown, selecting image from the sample OutSystems UI images.
Select the Animate widget, and on the Properties tab, set the relevant properties, for example, where you want the animation to enter the screen and at what speed.
After following these steps and publishing the module, you can test the pattern in your app.
|AnimationType (AnimationType Identifier): Mandatory||Set how the animation enters the screen.
The following are the available options:
|Delay (Integer): Optional||Time to wait before animation starts (in milliseconds). The default value is 0.|
|Speed (Speed Identifier): Optional||Animation duration. Fast, normal, and slow are the predefined speeds available for the animation.|
|ExtendedClass (Text): Optional||Adds custom style classes to the Pattern. You define your custom style classes in your application using CSS.
