[FREE] AirdArrangementManagement - extension

1. Introduction

Extension name: AirdArrangementManagement

This extension makes it easy to manage the opening and closing, and therefore the visibility, of the different views, including a history.

The extension gives the possibility of opening several predefined views in one block during initialization, either by the name of the view or by its position in the initialization list.

In addition, the history provided allows you to go back to previous views (either by an event or by the BACK key)

You can test a arrangement, a list of arrangement, or even a position in the Initialization List.

5. Example


First of all it is necessary to initialize.
You must add a list, named Initialization List, which can contain either an arrangement or an arrangement list.
The initialization list in the example contains:

  • in position 0 the view1 arrangement
  • in position 1 the view2 arrangement
  • in position 2 the view3 and view4 arrangement list

Thus, it is possible to use the Open function with the position parameter or the arrangements directly (see below)

In addition, you can add other arrangements or lists of arrangements later.

ex_add_arrangement ex_add_list

The Open method accepts as parameter an arrangement, a number which defines the position in the initialization list or a list comprising one of the two elements mentioned above.
In this example, the 0 position defined in the initialization list corresponds to the view1 arrangement.

ex_open_arrangement
ex_open_position
ex_open_list
ex_open_listMix

The isOpen method works on the same principle: arrangement, position or list (arrangement or position).
It returns TRUE if all tested arrangements are open.
If only one is closed, it returns FALSE.
ex_isopen_arrangement ex_isopen_listMix ex_isopen_position

Finally, here is an example of use to move through the history using the BACK key. When the history contains no more elements, then the application is reduced.
ex_use_backPress

Hi @Taifun,
Yes, view = arrangement!
Do you think I should modify?

probably yes, this helps to understand much better, what the extension is doing…
just replace view by arrangement everywhere…
also you might want to rename the extenson itself from AirDViewsManagement to just AirDArrangement or AirDArrangementManagement

what kind of input does the Initialise method expect for parameter listView? A list which contains arrangements?
for the Add, Open and IsOpen methods you are using views as parameter? Is it the same as listView?
an example screenshot of how to use the blocks might be helpful…
