Feature: Switches

Our upcoming release will feature 244 functions, support for formatting numbers and a function browser. Amid all the major new feature additions, minor features can easily be missed. One of these is support for switches, which allow users to easily toggle the value of a logical field.

Here’s an example of switches in use, including the preview which shows what switches look like in a finished app:


As you can see, this is a simple app with three switches and a label which displays one value when all switches have been toggled to the “on” position and another when at least one is in the “off” position. This is easily accomplished thanks to Calcapp now supporting text fields. We’re sure you can find more creative uses for this new feature.

To turn a field into a switch field, simply select Switch from the drop-down menu in the inspector. (The menu that says “Text” in the screenshot above.)
