Copy Screen Issue

I am creating an app with different screens (suppose 3).

all the screens have the same concept but use different variable names specified for own screens.

I created one screen and save the screen as a (template).

When I get the saved screen as a new screen for my screen no. 2, it looks very complicated.

Does it has another method to complete my app?

I tried it and copied all the components but not blocks.
Thank you.

If you need the blocks to be copied to another screen, you can click on a group of blocks, and click ctr + C and to copy it to the clipboard then ctrl + V on another block screen to paste the code you want to carry over

I never tried that method. :wink:

you are saying,
first, copy the columns and then copy the blocks.
so invisible components will be not copied but work-related with copied components too.

I trying now.

invisible components are usually carried across screens. i would think you should be able to access them from anywhere.

Got It. :+1:

if that works for you, please mark as a solution so that others may see this!

Can i select whole block screen ones. because there are more than 20 variables I have Defined.

why Are you recreating what’s on the screen? Would it be easier to work with dynamic screen content?

Less code to mess up that way

Dear Jared,
Can you please explain to me what is called “work with dynamic screen content”. :slightly_smiling_face:

For example, I made an app to track behavior data for 10 people. Instead of 10 different data sheets screens for each person. I made 1 data recording screen. Based on the active “person being observed” the entire screen changes including labels, buttons, rows/columns changing to be specific to that persons data sheet.

The code that I use to manage the data is so similar that instead of
Copying across screens. I added code so that the correct things display based on 1 setting.

If I have time today, I can post an example of this.

How nice. if I can do that it’s saving my time.

you mean we only need to design 1 screen to view people’s details. then we can see all people’s detail one by one after selecting individuals?

Yes. I’ll work on this as an example.

My main project records data for 10 people. It records 5 metrics for each person. Each metric must be 1 of 6 types.

All names and items being measured are separate for each of the 10 people. So you can image there is a large amount of potential settings and configurations.
