  • You can use the Sidebar UI Pattern to display additional information in the margin of the main content. The additional information supports the user's understanding of the main content.

    How to use the Sidebar UI Pattern

    In this example, we create a button that opens and closes the Sidebar widget.

    1. In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for Sidebar.

      The Sidebar widget is displayed.

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

    3. On the Properties tab, in the Name field, enter a name for the Sidebar widget (in this example, we enter it MySidebar), and from the IsOpen dropdown, select a value (in this example, we select False).

    4. Add your content to the Header and Content placeholders, for example, forms, images, text etc. In this example we add some text.

    5. From the Toolbox, drag the Button widget just below the Sidebar widget and on the Properties tab, in the Text field, enter the text you want to appear on the button (in this example, we enter Open).

    6. To create a screen action for the button, double-click the button, select the Logic tab, and from the Client Actions folder, navigate to and drag the SidebarToggle action onto the screen action.

    7. On the Properties tab, from the WidgetId drop-down, select the Id for the widget. In this example, MySidebar.Id.

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