Embedding an IFRAME on a Creatio Freedom UI Page

In a previous article I outlined how to embed an IFRAME on a Classic Creatio page. This article will outline how to do this for a Freedom UI page. We'll accomplish this by creating a simple Freedom UI component, and then adding the component to the page. We'll be able to use a static URL for the IFRAME source or bind the source to a property on the page.

Getting Resource Strings in Code on a Creatio Freedom UI Page

There are many cases where you need to get a localizable resource string in code on a Freedom UI page. For example, displaying prompts to the user. This is a simple thing, however, this article should clear uo any doubts of how to retrieve them in page requests. In this scenario, I have a resource […]

Navigating a User Back From a Creatio Freedom UI Page

There are some scenarios where you want to prevent a user from proceeding to a page and instead force them to go back to where they started. It could be scenarios where they need to complete other things first, or maybe they don’t have a specified permission to proceed to a given page. You can […]

Adding to a List from a Lookup on a Freedom UI Page

In my previous article I outlined how to invoke a lookup dialog on a Freedom UI page. In this article, we’ll expand on that idea to allow adding to a list from a lookup. For this sample, we have a list on the account page of products owned by the account. We’ll add a button […]

Invoking a Multi-Select Lookup Dialog on a Creatio Freedom UI Page

Creatio 8.1 introduces two new features when it comes to lookups and lists. First, is the addition of a Lookup dialog (instead of the drop-down type lookup that has been the only option for lookups previously for Freedom UI). Second, is the ability to multi-select from lists, which includes the list on the new Lookup […]

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 […]
