Budibase apps are single-page applications that contain either a single screen or multiple screens.

 

Adding a screen

When adding a screen, you can either add a blank screen or add an autogenerated screen.

 

Blank screens

When adding a blank screen, give your a screen and a URL. In the example below, I named my screen Home , and set the URL to /. After clicking Continue, a blank screen was generated (see image below). I can add components to this screen, change the navigation, update the screen's access.

 

Autogenerated screens

Autogenerated screens, are screens generated from a table's data. Budibase is smart, it can read your data and generate screens from that data. When you add autogenerated screens, Budibase will add 3 different screens:

  1. List screen - Basically, this is your Read screen. It's where you can see a list of all the data within your table.
  2. Detail screen - This is your Update and Delete screen. This screen allows your users to view, update and delete individual records from your table of data.
  3. New screen - This is your Create screen. This is where your users can create new records.

These screens, are interlinked, and combined, provide full CRUD functionality. Pretty nice, right!

Adding autogenerated screens

When you click the add screen button / icon in the design section, you will see a list of autogenerated screens available:

When you click the 'Add Screens' button, Budibase will create 3 (list, detail, new) screens.

These screens, combined, provide you with full CRUD functionality, allowing your users to create, read, update and delete data.

Background color

Similar to containers, it is possible to add a background color to your screen.
