Many thanks to Glide teams for all the amazing work they’ve achieved so far!
I have a map-based application and I was wondering if it would be possible to show different category of items in different colors (or icon) on my map?
For instance if my app is showing bars and restaurants around me, would it be possible to show “bars” in red pin points and “restaurants” in blue? From a Google sheet perspective this feature could be setup thanks to a “type of pin point” column in which I would need to enter wether the line item is bar or restaurant (or whatever I’m showing on my map).
In the end, what would be awesome is to let the possibility to the App user to filter what he wants to see (bars or restaurants or both) in the map… =)
I’ll second this idea as it would give devs the ability to also brand their accent color in another spot in the app. I would also make the suggestion to carry this color customization to inline text links as well. Right now, inline links in markdown are just underlined in the default text color. It would be great to have these links also tied to Settings > Accent Color.
Well, I wasn’t going for asthetics. Just the concept. Plus the concept is quite old and hasn’t been updated with the latest Glide features. Just display a list instead of a choice component if that’s what you prefer.
Well, I think a series of inline lists, set with an action to set a user specific column for each list, in combination with filtering each list by the screen value of the column set in the previous list, then following the directions in this post should get you what you need.
That’s why I mentioned to use a list with the set column action instead of a choice component. The concept in @Robert_Petitto’s post would then allow you to filter your final results based on those set column values and also account for empty selections on subsequent lists.
It’s the exact same concept as using choice components, but with inline lists instead.
