This documentation is for an earlier version of the App Inspector. For the version 5 App Inspector see here.
The App Inspector
The App Inspector is your best friend during development as it provides a complete overview of your App.
It is organized into Tabs. Each Tab is relevant to a particular workspace. You can double click a Tab to detach it into its own floating window.
Clicking the small icon on the far right of the App Inspector title bar will detach it into its own floating window.
Double clicking the window title bar when it is floating will attach it back into place.
The Attributes Tab
The Attributes Tab contains the App Attributes for Pages, Sections, FormItems and GridColumns. From Lianja v4.2, the App Settings are also included in the Attributes Tab.
Selecting a UI Element
Selecting an Attribute Category
Focus in on a single attribute category:
Or view them all:
Selecting an Attribute
Scroll through the attributes or search for an attribute by its first letter:
Most attributes take effect in the Page Builder as you change them:
For some attributes - where the data needs to be reloaded, as in the Section Filter shown below - the Apply Changes and Revert Changes buttons are displayed in the actionbar. Click the green tick to Apply Changes.
Note that from Lianja v4.2, the background color of the actionbar changes to pink when you need to confirm the change.
As shown above, the Apply Changes and Revert Changes buttons appear in the actionbar when confirmation is needed to commit a change. The actionbar has four further buttons:
- Toggle Editable: click this to toggle between locking the attributes and making them editable.
- Refresh: click this to refresh the Attributes panel, e.g. if you manually resize a grid column or edit a formitem caption in the Page Builder.
- Undo: undo attribute changes.
- Redo: redo attribute changes.
The '...' Button
To dock the tab back in the App Inspector, click the [x] or double-click the window title bar.
