Data Types Page

Here you can view, add and remove data types in the current project.


Create

To create a new type, press the '+' button above the table and select the desired type from the list. You can read more about kinds of types here: Data Types in Codejig Builder.


Delete

To delete a type, tick it and click the trash button above the table. If the type can be freely removed, a modal window will appear asking you to confirm this operation. If the type is used elsewhere, a list with all references will appear.


Filter

The table contains a list of types that belong only to the current project. Each entry in it has a color according to its kind. The colors of the kinds are displayed on the buttons for filtering above the table.

There are three ways to filter the table:

  • by kind - using the buttons above the table

  • by category - using a separate category list

  • by name - using the text box above the table

Note: The selected filters are persisted in your browser and will be in the same state next time you visit this page.


Categories

Categories are used only in development mode for additional filtering of the list of types. They are not displayed in any way to users in the resulting application. Add a type to a category at the stage of creating a type or on a type page in the section 'Preferences'.
