December’s update of App BuilderTM is here and it includes significant updates. Users can now efficiently manage all app Variables from a centralized location and benefit from the inclusion of a Financial Chart in the component toolbox. The update also introduces a new Figma UI Kit for Bootstrap, a valuable enhancement with the addition of a “Value Change” interaction event for the Date Picker component. Additionally, users now have the convenience of selecting all endpoints when configuring an OpenAPI-based data source, accompanied by various bug fixes for a smoother experience. 

If this is your first time learning about App Builder, let me quickly share why you should consider it as a key tool in the application development process for your organization:

  • A visual app builder – the unified platform for product managers, designers, developers andstakeholders.
  • Cloud-based WYSIWYG drag & drop tool that helps companies design and build complete business apps 80% faster than ever.
  • low-code tool generating production-ready Blazor codeAngular code and Web Components code from your Figma and Sketch designs.

All That’s New and Exciting in Infragistics’ Low-Code App Builder

Financial Chart

A new component has been added to the App Builder Toolbox – Financial Chart, a composite visualization chart that renders stock ticker data, or price data in an interactive time-series display. The Financial Chart shows stock prices for a ticker over time in a Time Series X-Axis. Also, this chart shows information for a company’s ticker data like Open Price, High Price, Low Price and Close Price (OHLC) for configurable period of time.

New Variables Management UI

We have provided a toolbox section to browse/search for variables created in the app. The toolbox section allows users to create and edit variables without deselecting the component they currently have selected. Moreover, toolbox state is independent of canvas interactions, and by nature, app-wide. Users will be able to switch between global and local variables. Local variables will be grouped by view context, so as clearly communicate scope of the local variables.

Date Picker New Interaction

Added Selection changed interaction event for Date Picker component. We have expose components ValueChange event of the DatePicker, having a similar behavior to Row Selection Changing for the Grid and Selection Changed for the Combo. This event is returning the Event context for the Source field (value) for the Set Variable action. This will enable you to set a Date type variable upon Date value changing.
