Let’s build a simple app in XPoda.
Watch Now: How To Create an App with XPODA
1- Go ahead and log in to your account.
2- In the page that appears, you’ll see your admin panel.
3- Let's proceed with clicking “Create New App”.
4- Assign a Name to your app and a brief Description of what that app is about. So let’s go ahead and create a module for your app.
💡Tip: Your app can have one or many modules. Modules are independently
workable parts of your application. Think of your application as a
collection of separate modules.
5- You have two choices. Either you create a Free Form from scratch or you can also do a Responsive Form.
For this tutorial, we’ll go with the Responsive Form. Click on “Create”.
6- This will be presented with your workspace for that module. Your workspace may look familiar if you are already coming from a software development background. If you’re not, don’t worry, it is quite easy to get familiar.
7- First, you have to give a name for your form in the Name Field.
8- Now, you’ll assign the table name which that form uses.
💡Just so you know; when you save the form, the system (Xpoda) will
automatically create a table for that form in the database.
9- The Display Name is what the users will see when the application is running.
10- The left pane contains your data Input Tools or Reporting Tools.
11- Let’s create the field names and the input fields for the form. Assign a name for the tool and its label.
12- After that, you'll identify the fields such as; Address, State, City, Zip Code, and Logo.
You are assigning the names to the fields.
💡Tip: You can play with the field measurements and design it as you need.
13- When you’ve done with designing your form, you have to click the Save button.
14- Once it’s saved you’ll click on the Run to create the client screen.
15- Finally your form is ready to use. You can start using it right away!
