Dynamically access social links in Glide - using new actions

Probably you have wanted to build a dynamic list of social links: Email, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. before but there’s no straightforward way to do it without costing rows.

Now with the actions Glide introduced, I achieved the thing above just this week with 4 rows, and think this can be helpful for people so I would share this.

First time using Screenity to record + write on screen at the same time, hopefully it’s clear for all of you.

Thanks @ThinhDinh This would surely help in one of my App where I wanted to provide option of sending SMS/Email/Whatsapp. Since this was not possible earlier, I had to use buttons instead of icons.

I will try your solution and revert.

Thanks

For who’s interested: Screenity is free and open source and Screenflow in a browser (though only live recording, no editing afterwards).

I’m still trying to understand what kind of sorcery is the relation between rows and columns that you use in the single element component, is there a place where it explains those features of the component, like the whole row relation or… the more I think about it, the more I think it’s just your genius, wow, very well done.

That’s exactly what I was doing with my app, but I was using an opposite method for creating this kind of menu but I think I prefer yours more, I’ll now try your method, thx

Finally found a use case for the single column’s whole row Max. I was not sure what to do with it when it was first released, but here I found out that instead of having to make 4 template columns & 4 relations I can just create 4 “relations” from single value cols. Pretty neat.

I’m now working on a similar menu but it is 2 or 3 levels of filters, where the first one is a macro category for the second and so on that will be applied to a list, suggestions?

Can you share some screenshots or list out here the structure of your data? Thank you.
