Outsystems Ui documentation
OutSystems UI

As some components on Outsystems UI are based on existing plugins on github, some with a large number of options, it would be nice to have in the description of the AdvancedFormat input, more commonly used options and how to use them directly on the description.

In my case, I was using the DropdownSearch, and did not know that by default the component sorts the list it receives, and this sort is slightly different from the sort in the query, so I had to add the advancedFormat so that the list shows with the sort I wanted.

"{ ""shouldSort"": false }"

Best regards,

Hi Filipe,

Thank you so much for your idea. I’m marking this as “on our radar” since we already have it on our roadmap.

At this moment we don't have an estimated date on when we will be able to address it but we will update this idea when that happens.

Hello Filipe,

The advancedFormat parameter no longer exists on the new versions of our components with external providers but in the last release of OutSystems UI we released an alternative that allows you to take advantage of the provider options in low code through our new client actions:

  • Set[LibraryName]Configs 
  • Set[LibraryName]Event 
  • Unset[LibraryName]Event

In the client action Set[LibraryName]Configs, you will find a structure with the most commonly used options and descriptions on how to use it.

You can find more info on our documentation page.

Keep sharing your ideas :)
