Button color based on query value

The recommended method of customizing your AppGini-generated application is through hooks. But sometimes you might need to add functionality not accessible through hooks. You can discuss this here.

Button color based on query value

Post by sacgtdev » 2022-07-22 03:10

How to code the button color so that the button color based on certain conditional value?

eg. if query_value >0, then color = green, otherwise, red.

Button is currently generated using jquery.

Assuming you have created a button using jQuery and already set the Bootstrap classes btn btn-default (and perhaps btn-md | btn-lg), stored in variable YOURBUTTON:

Code: Select all

YOURBUTTON.removeClass('.btn-default').addClass('btn-success');
Or

Code: Select all

YOURBUTTON.removeClass('.btn-default').addClass('btn-danger');
Depending on the selected Bootstrap theme, *-success will give the theme-wide-defined color for success messages and *-danger for error messages. Using those Bootstrap theme defined, side-wide classes is recommended for best user-recognition.

If you want different colors (not recommended), instead of replacing btn-default class by btn-danger/btn-success use something like ...

Code: Select all

YOURBUTTON.css('background-color', 'green !important');
---

Tip
Always remember that 8% of male users are color blind (and only very few females), most of them red-green. Those guys will barely see differences between red and green buttons, but just gray or gray. I recommend putting a different icon and caption, additionally, for best possible user guidance.
Kind regards,
