Create Screens

In Volt MX Iris, you build screens using forms that you populate with widgets such as buttons, text fields, labels, and the like. Any given screen that the user sees is the result of a form, and your application can consist of as many or as few forms as it needs. To have the app move from one form to another, you associate that action with a particular widget, such as a button.

You can use a form across multiple platforms The operating system of a given device. iOS and Android are examples of platforms. and you can adapt a form created for one channel Device types available within a given platform. These include mobile (i.e. phone), tablet, and desktop.for use on other channels. For information on creating forms for Apple Watch, see Apple Watch.

  1. On the Project Explorer, click the Project tab.
  2. Expand the channel you want to create the form for, either Mobile, Tablet, Watch, or Desktop.
  3. Hover over Forms, click its context menu arrow, select New Form, and then click Flex Form. A new form is added to the Project tab, and becomes the form of focus on the Iris Canvas.
  4. To rename the form, on the Look tab of the Properties Pane, type the new name in the ID text box. The form name cannot have any spaces.
