Tag Control

Tag control is used to display information which enables the users to get a quick glance over the things that they are interested in.


UI Properties

  • Label : The text that is displayed which helps the user to understand the type of control it represents.

  • Toop Tip : The option to add tooltip text as a hint to the user. It is visible when you switch on the visibility toggle property.

  • Description : The option to provide a description that you can add for your control. It is visible when you switch on the visibility toggle property.

  • Caching : When the caching option is selected and if a LOOKUP formula is applied to this control, the value that the LOOKUP returns will be cached and the user will be able to see this value in the fields even when he accesses the microapp later with no connectivity. This option is required when you want your app to be accessible in offline mode as well and getting the latest data from the sheets is not always critical.

  • Hidden : The hidden option helps to hide the control from the user. This helps when you don’t want the user to view the control.

  • Trigger Dependents : When you Disable Trigger Dependents, it helps you to reduce or optimize the unnecessary evaluation of the dependent control’s formula. For a detailed explanation refer to this article here .. By default Trigger dependents are enabled. However, in complex apps by switching it off, you would limit the evaluation in the dependent control and in turn ensure quicker response times.

  • Hide on desktop: This option hides the selected control in the desktop view.

  • Hide on Mobile : This option hides the selected control in the mobile view.

  • Dynamic Height : This option dynamically increases /decreases the height of the text control based on the given content.
