Build Pages


Build pages are where you configure different aspects of an app. This list shows the App Builder menu items and the build pages they navigate to:


Most build pages use tables to show data.

For example, the Modules build page lists modules in a table:

App Builder Modules Table

Tables are made of the following elements:

Most tables also have an unlabeled actions column as the last column. Click the actions menu icon to open a menu of actions (such as edit, delete, copy) to run on a table item.

When there are many items in a table, you can use the following tools to view or find data:

  • Sort: Sort table rows by a column value.

  • Filter: Filter data to only show rows where the values in columns meet specified conditions.

  • Refresh: Refresh the data in the table.

  • Page navigation: Step forward or backward through pages of table data, or jump to a specific page.

  • Items per page: Set how many rows of data to show on each page.


You can sort the rows in a table according to the values of any one column (except the actions column which contains a menu).

Click a column's heading to sort the table according to that column's values in ascending order.

Click the same heading again to sort in descending order.

Click a third time to return the table to its original sort order.


You can filter the data in a table to show only rows that match certain conditions.

Click the filter icon in the header row of a column to open its filter dialog.

A filter dialog from the Module column of the Modules build page:

App Builder Filter Dialog

There are two kinds of filter dialog that vary according to the type of the column's data:

  1. Boolean: A boolean filter is a radio button with the options Yes or No.

  2. Clause-based: A clause-based filter dialog comprises either one or two clauses. A clause is a condition and a value:

    • Condition: A menu listing various choices of condition that the following value should meet.

    • Value: Either a text field, a date-time (calendar) value, or a menu of fixed values.

    When a filter dialog has two clauses, a menu lets you select a logical operator to combine them:

    • And: Both clauses must be true for the filter to apply.

    • Or: Either clause can be true for the filter to apply.

All filter dialogs have buttons to add or remove a filter:

  • Filter: Click to add the filter conditions.

  • Clear: Click to remove the filter conditions.


The following conditions appear in filter dialogs when filtering on text values:

  • Is Equal To

  • Is Not Equal To

  • Starts With

  • Contains

  • Does Not Contain

  • Ends With

  • Is Null

  • Is Not Null

  • Is Empty

  • Is Not Empty

  • Has No Value

  • Has Value

The following conditions appear in filter dialogs when filtering on date-time values:

  • Is Equal To

  • Is Not Equal To

  • Is After or Equal To

  • Is After

  • Is Before or Equal To

  • Is Before

  • Is Null

  • Is Not Null

The following conditions appear in filter dialogs when filtering on fixed values:

  • Is Equal To

  • Is Not Equal To

  • Is Null

  • Is Not Null


Click the refresh icon to refresh the data in the table.
