Pop-up

The Pop-up widget consists of a button and a modal window that displays data.

On a form, the window opens when a user clicks the button. The content of the window is set up with an additional widget.

To add the widget to a form, drag it from the side panel of the interface designer to the canvas or use the +Widget button. Read more in the Form templates article. Set up the widget in the window that opens.

Example

In the following example, the Pop-up widget is added to the Clients app form. The name of the Button is changed to “Order History”. The modal window contains the Associated items widget linked to the Orders app.

When a user clicks the Order History button, the pop-up menu displays all the orders for this client. From this list, you can quickly access the pages of any of the client’s orders.
