  • You can use the Timeline Item UI Pattern to show related events in a chronological order, such as a user's upcoming, current, and past activities.

    How to use the Timeline Item UI Pattern

    1. In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for Timeline Item.

      The Timeline Item 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 Timeline widget onto your application's screen.

      By default, the Timeline Item widget contains Left, Icon, Title, Content, and Right placeholders. You can add as many Timeline Item widgets as required.

      In this example we add two more Timeline Item widgets.

    3. Set the required content in each of the placeholders.

      In this example we add some icons and text.

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

    NOTE: This property is deprecated. It renders an element as being active in mobile applications based on the OutSystems UI Base Theme prior to version 2.4.0. It has no effect in applications created after OutSystems UI version 2.4.0.

    You can also use the classes available on the OutSystems UI. For more information, see the OutSystems UI Live Style Guide.
