As my app expands and I need more tabs for different functionalities, I’m wondering if we could get an option to link Buttons to Tabs.
This way, i could create the tabs required, and put them in the Hidden tabs section. Then create a single tab with buttons to those hidden tabs.
Couple of examples:
I categorise my todos, diary entries, notes, etc as Work, Personal, Business. Sometimes I want to view them by just their category. So I set up a Tab for each category under the hamburger menu.
Within the main screens of my app, completed todos are hidden. Sometimes I want to go back to the completed todos and mark them incomplete (e.g. of I’ve accidentally marked the wrong one complete). So, again, I setup a Tab with that view.
Ideally, I would like a single screen of buttons to access each of these four views. And any future views.
Now obviously a Button goes to its own view, so you could say what’s wrong with that? But that view is unique to that button. Trash the button, lose that view. Whereas, a Tab is a globally accessible view and independent. You could trash a button linked to it, but not lose that view.
Of course, I’m asking this coz I’ve already setuo those four tabs bit now want to switch to a single screen of buttons. Because, currently, new buttons that “Link to screen” create new views and I’d have to redo everything.
Another thought, maybe when you create a new Button that links to screen, have an option to save the new view as a Tab?
PS I am hoping future Glide will have filter buttons, which means, my example above would be less necessary, though globally accessible views (Tabs) would be useful at other times.
