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:

Configure link

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:

  • Configure dynamic parameters as an object:

Passing query params
{
id: {{ui.customersTable.selectedRow.data.customerNumber}}
}

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 {{ activeRoute.queryParams.id }} variable:

Receiving query params

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:

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:
