  • You can use the Flip Content UI Pattern to display information that when, for example, is clicked, flips and displays different information.

    How to use the Flip content UI Pattern

    1. In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for Flip Content.

      The Flip Content 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 Flip Content widget into the Main Content area of your application's screen.

    3. Add the required content for the front and back placeholders inside the Flip Content widget.

      In this example, we add images by dragging the Image widget into the front and back placeholders in the Flip Content widget and selecting an image from the sample OutSystems UI images.

    4. On the Properties tab, from the Trigger drop-down, you can customize when the Flip Content widget is triggered, for example, when it is clicked.

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