Using the Creatio Toggle Panel on a Freedom UI Page

One of the nice new UI features for Creatio Freedom UI pages is the Toggle Panel layout component. You’ve likely seen this already, most Freedom UI pages for sections use this for the Attachment’s and Feed areas. It’s those pop out panels on the right side that can toggle open and closed. It can be […]

Changing the Height of the Creatio Freedom UI RichText Editor

The Freedom UI RichText Editor defaults to a single line/row. It does grow as the user enters more and more text. However, this single row gives the appearance that it’s just a normal text field, not one that can support multiple lines of text and can cause some confusion for end users. I prefer to […]

Adding Row Action Menu Items to a Creatio Freedom UI List

Something I have really grown to love with Freedom UI lists is the ability to add row actions that can be performed for the selected row in a list. These quick actions make a nice way to allow users to perform quick actions without opening the full record page. Here’s a sample of a list […]

Copying a Value to the Clipboard on a Creatio Freedom UI Page

On a Freedom UI page, you can execute requests to perform various actions, such as to display a message dialog, a toast message, open a page, reloading a list or page, etc. One of the available types of requests you can execute is to copy a value to the clipboard. This request is called a […]

Organizing Code for Creatio Freedom UI Pages with Modules

On Freedom UI pages all page code is added as request handlers. This new way that code is added to Freedom UI pages has some benefits, however, it does tend to make the code for the page unorganized, difficult to read, and not reusable. Rather than adding all logic to request handlers on a Freedom […]

Dynamically Filtering a Lookup on a Creatio Freedom UI Page

Filtering lookups on a Freedom UI page is something new in 8.0.10. However, even in 8.0.10 there are still some issues with filtering lookups. I do expect lookup filtering to improve for Freedom UI in versions to come, however, there is still a need to be able to dynamically filter a lookup with complex conditions […]

Converting a Creatio Package to an Application

In Creatio 8.0 Atlas and higher a new layer for development was added called applications. The application is a layer above the package, meaning a parent layer for the package and can hold additional metadata about what your development is for or contains. Additionally, an application can contain multiple packages as well. You’ll see the […]

Saving a Page Before Some Action on a Creatio Freedom UI Page

With Freedom UI pages, all client code executes as a request. There can be one, or multiple handlers of a request, but essentially, to do anything, you need a request to be executed for it to happen. This is the case saving the page as well. I’ve shown before how to handle (or respond to) […]

Adding Color to Column Values in Creatio Freedom UI Lists

In Freedom UI list pages there is now no-code support for adding color to column values. Previously, you could do this with code and add CSS to the list rows or use our Section Case Colors add-on (which still works for classic sections & details). However, now in Freedom UI lists, this has built in […]

Validating Multiple Asynchronous Results in Creatio

In a previous article I showed how to asynchronously validate a result when saving a page in Creatio. This is needed when validating something when a page is saved and the validation requires an asynchronous function, such as an EntitySchemaQuery. At the end of that article, I mentioned how you would go about doing this […]
