How to Coda a new row as full screen?
Adding information to your table using the full screen
My friend Jean Pierre Traets was wondering if he could open a window via a canvas button in full screen mode for his co-workers when they had to add information to a table.
Recently Coda updated presentation options. That is a great plus when you have to present. This is different. We want to add rows and then while adding making use of the full screen. In dec 2021 we received a related update and this blog presents an elaboration, partly based on this contribution.
When you want to add a row via a canvas button we do something alike. Below what I created as an example.
The main trick is to use the
RunActions() and the
OpenWindow() . Inside the
OpenWindow() you have grab the URL of the last row and you that as you see above by writing the name of the table, adding the function
Last() and the unsupported function
Url() and you turn them into text. The last part of the trick is the “view=full” you glue together with the URL via the
Concatenate(). Since the row has already been added via the
OpenWindow() can take this last row and open it for us.
From now on you can present your workers with the full screen option due to this little trick.
