About this article
In this article, we will go through some workflows that changed to build dynamics in the previous Dynamics Designer and the new Template Designer.
- Accessing the binding syntax
- Text element placeholder form field
- Image bindings
- Adaptive sections - Repeating groups
Accessing the binding syntax
In the previous Dynamics Designer, the binding syntax was directly displayed when creating bindings. In the new Designer, the binding syntax can be accessed on the smart field level by drilling down the "Advanced" menu and clicking on
Also, achieving complex use cases can be done by creating a Custom text binding, Custom image binding, and Custom repeating group smart fields.
Text element placeholder form field
In the previous Dynamics Designer, it was possible to create Text element placeholder form fields directly when creating the form. In the new Designer, the Text element placeholder form field will automatically be added to the response form once a Text element smart field is created.
Once the Text element smart field was created and the Text element placeholder response form field has been generated, you can easily reorder the response form by using drag and drop. Also, you can preview the response form to ensure its behavior.
In the previous Dynamics Designer, image bindings were one of the dynamic elements that could be chosen from the element type dropdown. In the new Designer, the creation of the image binding is done based on the origin of the image:
Adaptive sections - Repeating groups
In the previous Dynamics Designer, repeating group bindings were one of the dynamic elements that could be chosen from the element type dropdown.
For Data connectors: In the new Designer, the creation of the repeating group binding remains based on a Data connector form field and will be available for creation from the response form smart field. Once the main repeating group is created and the cursor is located within the repeating group, Repeating items smart field will be available.
For App connectors, the Custom repeating group should be used for the array along with Custom text binding, Custom image binding for the items.
