With the ‘Show page’ action you can show a page to the end user.
See Microflow Element Common Properties for properties that all activities share (e.g. caption). This page only describes the properties specific to the action.
Object to pass
Object that will be passed to the opened page. This object will be used by data views with data source “caller of the page”.
The page to show to the end user. If the Object to pass is specified, the page must contain a data view connected to the same entity as the passed object (or its generalization).
You can generate a new page to show by clicking ‘Select…’ and then ‘New’. If you have selected an Object to pass the Modeler will automatically generate a data view to edit that object.
By default the title of the page is determined by the page title property of the page. You can replace this title with a custom title if necessary.
This feature allows you to re-use the same page for the New and Edit buttons of a data grid. By simply setting the titles to, for example, ‘New customer’ and ‘Edit customer’, you can save yourself the trouble of duplicating the rest of the page.
If the layout of the target page has a layout type configured, the Location property will be removed. Instead, the layout type will determine how the page is opened. This eliminates the risk of accidentally modeling a pop-up form with a huge menu bar.
For Mendix version 5.18 and higher, this option is shown only when the target page has a layout type of Legacy. Starting with version 5.18, the way a page is shown is determined by the layout you select from the NavigationLayouts module and the layout type to which it has been set.
Location defines how the page is shown.
|In content||The page replaces the existing top-level page.|
|Pop-up||The page is opened in a new dialog on top of the existing page(s).|
|Blocking pop-up||The page is opened in a new dialog on top of the existing page(s) and a hover, that makes it impossible to navigate to another page, is put on top of the underlying page(s).|
Default value: Pop-up
