Dynamic Slices, views and labels

Sorry if you guys already know this but it is new for me.

I used to have 9 slices and 9 views depending on which of 3 USERSETTINGS()'s the user selected on 3 choices. (Level 1, Level 1 and Level 3)

Now I have 3 slices and 3 views for the 3 choices! :slight_smile:

Firstly, the user will select an option from User Settings that I have already set up

These settings are also editable by the user in an underlying sheet using a VALID_IF

On selecting one of the 3 options the App sets [Proximity Distance] to the selected value

The [Proximity Distance] value can then be used to select the correct data in Slices and to set Menu Views

and in the slice associated with the view using…

Whenever the user changes the USERSETTING the App dynamically applies the [Proximity Distance] where needed throughout the rest of the app.

Has saved me App Space and Coding.

Hi Steve.
I´m trying use slices in my app, I saw you´ve been successful in your first aplication, I´m trying select just rows that have something writed.

So i need a condition that write: If the row have been IS BLANK do not show the collumn in the frontend form

Could you help me?

Hi Laura. I’ll see if I can help :slight_smile:

If all you want to do is hide a column then you can use the Show_If statement for it…

In my example, the column Reported By will only be shown if another column [Date Completed] is blank.


If you need a Slice to manipulate data that meets criteria then use something like…

This will return all data that meets the criteria. It will not hide a column though.

Hope some of this helps.

ISNOTBLANK() is the opposite to ISBLANK()

If not, get back in touch.

Keep safe :slight_smile:
