What is the alternative of Preparation in the latest Outsystems version?

Hi,

My personal environment is updated to the latest version. I could not find Preparation for the screen action. What is the replacement for Preparation?

Any documentation could be helpful for me.

Thanks,

Saicharan

Hello Sai,

You probably need to provide more details to get an answer, like what kind of application you are building (mobile or web app or reactive web app). Traditional web application still use preparation, whereas for mobile and reactive web apps this is managed differently.

Hi,

Preparation is still available in tradition web application. If you have selected Reactive web while you created your application then you will see event for screen (Select screen and in properties you will see event) and you can read data directly in screen by right clicking on screen and selecting "Fetch data from Database" or "Fetch data from Other Source".

Check https://www.outsystems.com/learn/paths/18/becoming-a-reactive-web-developer/ for tutorial to learn reactive web.

Hi,

On mobile and Reactive web applications you can add an aggregate or a data action directly to a screen. These actions are performed asynchronously. 

Here is the official documentation
