  • Edit
  • You can use the Alert UI Pattern to highlight and display important information, errors, or warnings.

    How to use the Alert UI Pattern

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

      The Alert widget is displayed.

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

    3. Select the Text placeholder, and enter the Alert message you want to display.

    4. On the Property tab, set the mandatory AlertType property. In this example, the alert type is set to error which changes the message to display in red. Additionally, the (optional) ShowCloseButton property is set to True. This enables a Close button for the Alert.

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