Color the IF connectors Green and Red

Service Studio
On our radar

After yet another bug with swapping an IF... could the True connector be GREEN and False RED? Thought i already posted this idea years ago, but couldn't find it...

Interesting thought.


Be careful about the colourblind people.

Furthermore, it should not become  a christmastree

Maybe a Red false is enough

+1 on idea, +1 on softening up the color intensity

Yes, this is a common bug that could be easily spotted just by visually analysis.

Maybe instead of coloring the arrows, just coloring the "True" and "False".

Whatever the solution adopted, for me, this is +1 for improving our low-code. :)

+1 on the idea, +1 for only the red one. Because it shouldn't look like a Christmas tree like J. is saying.

Also a Red one for the otherwise in Switch

+1

Agreed.

I would like to see this feature. Sometimes application stops working because of wrong if connectors. This one will expedite the debugging process.

To avoid having a Christmas tree, as J. says, maybe playing with the thickness of the True or False arrow would help.

Merged this idea with 'Visually differentiate the true/false connectors of the If tool' (created on 14 Sep 2019 08:10:02 by Ricardo Sousa)

It happen to all of us, we drag it, we complete the remaining logic and it the end it does't work because we forgot to swap the connectors...

So, to help avoid similar situations the platform could visually differentiate the true/false connectors of the If tool.


Example:

If it is for one true/false path, it has been supplied as label.

If for the entire flow of true/false, this could be confusing for the case where one is implementing nested conditions.

if --(false)--> if --(true)--> if --(false)--> if --(false)--> if --(false)--> if --(true)-->

Hi all,

I think it would be helpful if the True branch was the default one when we drag & drop an If node. That way, situations where we forget to swap connectors would be avoided.


Cheers!

This idea could also be adapted to Switch connectors
