This is something I have been working on. It may or may not be of interest to anyone, but it sure helped me.
In an app I am working on, I have a need to “run a report” with a filter on a screen. But I wanted the USER to choose the filter. It is kinda like running a “search” on a page, but the input is specific.
I have made a “fun app” to show you what I have done. (This is not my app, just a fun one to show the concept.)
The front page is a list of numbers, with a fun description. There is a button at the top to add your own.
The other page is a report page. The user has the ability to change the report through a choice menu at the top…
That change will be entered into cell A2 and a report will be generated in columns B-D and reflected on the app. I only display columns B-D. (it takes a couple of seconds for the report to run)
Go ahead, add some numbers. Run a report.
