Add navigation to application

Learn how to add in-app and external navigation with pages, menu and query params

Both in-app and external navigation is supported by UI Bakery. UI Bakery application can contain multiple pages. To create a page, open a menu in the left sidebar and click the Plus button:

There are several options how to perform navigation inside of the application:

  • Using Link component

  • Using Button component

  • Using Navigation action step

  • Using Menu component

Navigation can be made to an internal application page as well as to an external website. To create a link, simply add a component and configure it to point to an internal or external page:

In the case of a button or a link, you can use a Query params property of a component to pass dynamic parameters to a detail page.

For instance, to display a selected object on a child page with a button click you would need to do the following:

  • On the Query params section, switch to JS mode and configure a primary key of the object:

  id: {{}}

In this example currently selected user number will be sent as an id query parameter to the Customer page.

  • Receive a URL query parameter on a child page using {{ }} variable:

That's it, now if you select a row in a master page table and then click the Show Customer button - you will be navigated to a child page with a preloaded customer displayed in the detail component:

Passing dynamic parameters - Navigation action step

You can also make navigation as a result to other events like table row select or form submit with the help Navigation action step:

  • create a new Action

  • choose the Navigation step, set the destination page {{ routes.customer.url }} and configure query params:

This can also be useful when creating a redirect after a form submit.

If you need to configure redirection to an external page following a certain trigger, follow these steps:

  1. Add an additional Code step to your action and specify the code:

const a = document.createElement('a');
a.href = ''; = '_top';;

If you need to open the external link in a new tab, use this code:'');
return 1;

Please be aware that when running this code on certain browsers, it may trigger a "blocked popup" warning message. This is especially likely to occur when the code is executed using the "Run Action" button. However, if the code is executed as a result of user interaction (e.g. button click), it should function correctly.
