How to use it
  • Publish the eSpace in your environment
  • Reference the ShowTouch weblock
  • Add the webblock to the pages layout or to the specific page where you want to see the touches
  • Do your demo and Enjoy!
(if you want to enable or disable the "visible touch" there's a site property in the ShowTouch eSpace to turn it on or off)

  • Only shows the first finger touching the screen (go ahead and extend it for multitouch!)
  • Tested in iOS 7.1 and Android 4.4 (go ahead and test it in other versions!)
What’s new (0.3.0)
No longer attaches to touchstart event and that was causing conflicts with other javascript being used in some OutSystems labs apps.

IdP Connector is a generic federated identity provider (IdP) connector, i.e., the IdP Connector its an IdP Service Provider. It allows your OutSystems applications to integrate with single sign-on (SSO) provided by most of the commercial IdP companies. With this integration when the users access an OutSystems application, they are redirected to a web page (known as the enterprise's login manager) where they are prompted to enter their enterprise user name and password. Upon verification of the user’s login, the enterprise identity provider informs OutSystems application of the verified identity for the user who is logging in, and the user is redirected back to the portal website. Also supports SSO from OutSystems mobile apps, alongside with IdP Mobile connector. Tested with Okta, Azure, ADFS, PingOne and OneLogin
