The Add a popup window opens. Set a name and a comment for it. click on Add button.

Conclusion

In the UIDesigner perspective we are able to create user-interface elements that helps us create more user-friendly scenarios. We can add any elements that helps us to manage the process more easily.

Capturing and using the Popups in the workflows is very similar to the way we use pages in the applications and it is easy to integrate them in the flowcharts.

  • Hi Monica Paiu – Thanks for the blog. I am also trying to do something similar. In my popup, I have a input field of type “Select” ( just like dropdown input field ). When I chose one value from dropdown, in my code I get only the “ID” of the selection, whereas I want to have the “value” of it.

    Could you please give me some inputs on how to achieve it?

    Thanks & regards

    • Hi Srinivas Rao,

      This is a bug and has been reported to he development team in order to be fixed.

      Meanwhile, you can use,as a workaround, the key instead of the value.

      Best regards,

      Monica
