Adding controls

Suggest edit Updated on July 21, 2021

Build an interactive and visually appealing UI that is consistent throughout all your applications by using controls. By adding the right controls, you help users to navigate through the environment more intuitively and to process work items more efficiently. With a wide variety of default controls, you can create a UI that meets your business needs.

You can add controls to views of your applications.
  1. Open the view that you want to edit.

    For more information, see Accessing views in your application.
  2. In the configuration pane on the right side of the window, in the header of the region in which you want to add the control, click the Add icon.

  3. In the Controls node, hover over the row with the name of the control that you want to add to your view, and then click the Add to view icon.

  4. Close the Add pane.

Result: The control is added to your view.
