AppBlock Types

Basic AppBlocks

Basic AppBlocks perform specific functions and are generally the easiest and quickest to create.  In addition, the Basic AppBlocks do not have an AppCanvas or AppOffice section for configuration and management, as they utilize functions and apps that are installed as a part of the device's operating system.  All configuration is done in the Configuration section for Basic AppBlocks.


Complex AppBlocks

Complex AppBlocks are designed to be extremely flexible to support many functions and use cases.  Each Complex AppBlock will have an AppCanvas section and, based on the data source, may have the AppOffice section.  Each of the Complex AppBlock will have a Configuration section.

Navigation AppBlocks

The Navigation AppBlocks are used only as way for you to create pages that link to other AppBlocks; they do not consume data dynamically.  Each Navigation AppBlock has a Configuration section and an AppCanvas section.


Platform Extension AppBlocks

The Platform Extensions allow you to use your own custom code to incorporate features or function not otherwise supported in the Basic or Complex AppBlocks.


Some AppBlocks don't fall into a general category.
