{Suggestion} Controls or Components

Hi David,
I have some suggestion that I think that might improve AB to be more robotic among other hybrid softwares.

It will great if there components like:
Listview, Scrollview, Paypal MPL SDK, Login and GridView etc, added to current components.

Also, making those components be native look - Android, iOS and Windows feels.

Thanks.

Re: {Suggestion} Controls or Components

Hello Ade,

Thanks for posting. Certainly it's easy to made a "ListView", since we have "views" and also "Multiselect" and "HTML" controls. We have also a simple "Select" control, which on Android, for example, is very lovely, since the system show us a "modal list" with the options to choose.

About the "Scrollview", I am not sure, but, remember our "Report" control: take a look at the "Report1" to "Report9" samples... such control offer us lot of posibilities. Maybe right now we can't get a "scrollview" (out of the box) but a very similar and widely used approach.

About the "Login" and "Grid" view: the login can be prepared with a couple of "Inputs". The "Grid" control does not exists now in App, but, a control like that in a mobile environment... anyway we can use a "Report" control for data show, and then "Inputs" for data edition.

About PayPal,... my recomendation right now is to use some of the "HTML" API they offers. For example, we can open the "Paypal users page" in certain "Iframe", or use the "OpenWindow" action with certain PayPal links ready to process a purchase.

I know this is not exactly the answer you may expected, but, hopefully they can help you in some way Ade.

Re: {Suggestion} Controls or Components

Paypal just came out with something new for getting mobile and web payments.  called PayPal.me/yournamehere.  When clicked from an app it will allow the clicker to send you money from their paypal account.  Seems legit from what I can tell but make your own investigation and I say full disclaimers here. 

I crated on and it seems good but have not used it for payment yet. 

From their email:

PayPal.Me/yournamehere is your new link to getting paid

Just post your PayPal.Me link on your website, social media profile, or emails. Customers can see your link on any of their devices, enter a payment amount, log in, and they're done - money is sent to you in an instant. When you receive the money, you pay your standard fee.

Like other PayPal transactions, PayPal.Me payments are secure. You and your customer are both protected by PayPal Seller and Purchase Protection for eligible transactions. And if your customer doesn't already have a PayPal account, they can sign up in seconds.

Next time you need to get paid for goods and services, choose convenience and use PayPal.Me.

For more information, go to www.paypal.me.

Thanks,

PayPal

Hello,

Thanks for posting Donald. Certainly PayPal.me can be a solution in some cases. Here is my URL, for example:

https://paypal.me/davidesperalta

I think, for other possible uses, we can deep a little search for possible Javascript/HTML APIs. In the future maybe some kind of API can be integrated in App Buidler, but, unfortunately, I can't promise nothing at this time.

Re: {Suggestion} Controls or Components

What do you think would be the best control to place that type of link?

Hello Donald,

Not a control, Donald, but the "OpenWindow" action is suitable here. But yes, another possible candidate can be the Launcher control along the "LauncherAction" action. In order to use this latest one we need to build our application with Apache Cordova, as well to check the "Launcher" Cordova's plugin. Another possible way (only for desktop/browser applications) can be to use an HTML control with an "A" HTML tag.

Hello Ade,

Are you take a look at the "Report*" samples? I think the Report control is what you are looking for.

Hi David,

I'm sorry for late response. I still have internet connection problem at home that is why I couldn't reply you early.

I am now exploring the report sample projects.

Thanks.
