With version 2016.112 we introduce some major features for SmartBar, which allow a smoother handling of count/color based buttons and an easier handling of multiple views. For further information on how to add navigation buttons to system views, have a look at this article.
Count/colour based buttons
With version 2016.112 or higher, it is possible to color code SmartBar buttons and to set a range on SmartBar buttons.
Figure 1: SmartBar Color Coding and range
To range the buttons, please open the SmartBar settings with a click on the [Gear icon]-button. In the so opened buttons-tab, please select the button you’d like to modify and click on the [Configure]-button. Of course, you could also create a new button. If you’d like to create a totally new button, please see this article.
In the so opened window, please click on the [Add]-button in the Button Background Color-field.
Figure 2: Add Color
Here, you can
– set a maximum count of related records for this color. ❶
(In our below example (see figure 4), the button will only appear in this color if the count of related records is smaller than 10.)
– define a color ❷
– or delete the button ❸
Figure 3: Add new button
The result looks like this. You may add as many buttons as you wish. However, the button’s range must be set in an ascending order.
