B4A Library [B4X] [XUI] AS Settings

Introducing a new library that allows you to create your own settings page with minimal code. This library comes equipped with automatic saving and loading features, making it incredibly easy to manage your settings. It supports booleans, free text, numbers, comboboxes, action buttons and more, giving you a wide range of options to customize your settings page. With this library, you can quickly and easily create a professional-looking settings page for your application or app without having to worry about complicated coding.

I spend a lot of time in creating views, like this and to create a high quality view cost a lot of time. If you want to support me and further views, then you can do it here by Paypal or with a coffee. :)

The library is still in a beta phase, things can still change and there are still bugs that need to be fixed.

It uses conditional symbols in order to avoid adding dependencies when a feature is not required.

make this reusable to display different properties depending on choices
Can I please clarify..

For example, assuming that you have these properties...

1695830360346.png


I'd like to use the same settings component but clear and replace these with some other options. The clearing will remove all the displayed settings and I am able to add others

As an example, my "AS Settings" component is named propbag. So I want to reuse it on button click like.

B4X:
Sub PageSettings
    AS_Properties.DeleteAllProperties
    propbag.AddGroup("Basic","Basic Settings")
    propbag.AddProperty_Text("Basic", "pagename", "Page Name", "", Null, "Page 1", 100dip, propbag.InputType_Text)
    propbag.AddProperty_Boolean("Basic","PropertyName_1","Boolean Property True","Description Test Text",Null,True)
End Sub

This will display a text box with boolean only.

B4X:
Sub ComponentSettings
    AS_Properties.DeleteAllProperties
    propbag.AddGroup("Basic","Basic Settings")
    propbag.AddProperty_Text("Basic", "componentname", "Component Name", "" , Null, "Test", 100dip, propbag.InputType_Text)
End Sub

I hope you understand, can I do that with this?

I hope you understand
No I do not.
You need to call AS_Settings1.Create if you want to build the list new.
This property clears the customlistview and builds the view new with the properties you add with e.g. propbag.AddProperty_Boolean.

For further questions it would be useful to make a separate thread. Here no one will find an answer if he uses the search.

  • 1.05
    • AS_Settings
      • B4J Focused TextField at start bugfix
      • Add SetProperty_Boolean - Sets the value of a property as if the user had clicked the switch
        • The _ValueChanged event is triggered
      • Add GetProperty - Gets the property object
SetProperty_Boolean
In the following example, PropertyName_2 and PropertyName_3 are set to the same value as PropertyName_1. e.g. PropertyName_2 and PropertyName_3 are dependent on PropertyName_1, if PropertyName_1 = False then the other 2 should also be False.
B4X:
Private Sub AS_Settings1_ValueChanged(Property As ASSettings_Property, Value As Object)
    Select Property.PropertyName
        Case "PropertyName_1"
            AS_Settings1.SetProperty_Boolean("PropertyName_2",Value)
            AS_Settings1.SetProperty_Boolean("PropertyName_3",Value)
        Case Else
            Log("PropertyName: " & Property.PropertyName & " Value: " & Value)
    End Select
End Sub
AS_Settings SetProperty_Boolean Example.gif

GetProperty
The object property has a new variable called "view". It contains the view with which the user interacts. e.g. for a boolean it is the B4XSwitch, for a text it is the TextField.

In the following example, I deactivate PropertyName_2 and PropertyName_3 whenever PropertyName_1 is not True.
B4X:
Private Sub AS_Settings1_ValueChanged(Property As ASSettings_Property, Value As Object)
    Select Property.PropertyName
        Case "PropertyName_1"
            AS_Settings1.GetProperty("PropertyName_2").View.As(B4XSwitch).Enabled = Value
            AS_Settings1.GetProperty("PropertyName_3").View.As(B4XSwitch).Enabled = Value
        Case Else
            Log("PropertyName: " & Property.PropertyName & " Value: " & Value)
    End Select
End Sub

This is what many many members were asking for in Preference Dialog. Now all of them will thank you for fulfilling there wish.

The next version is a huge update, with a complete rewrite of the most logic and handling.

One of the new features is paging, you can create as many pages as you want, to show sub, sub, sub settings and options.
You can get a small insight in the following video. In the video you can see a 2nd new feature.


The backend has not been touched, all your saved settings are untouched.

AddSpaceItem
Is a space item without content, you can set a custom height
Multi page support
Multipage support is a important feature, it allows you to outsource settings to a second page.
As there are too many different designs for headers, I opted for the bottom sheet version.

Breaking changes
The complete library has been rewritten, most commands need a .MainPage in front of them. Just have a look at the example projects, they are all up to date.

How can I change the PropertyColor as the "PropertyColor" changes the background color. The property textcolor is always white and I don't find the way to change this.

There are an option - as the ASScheduler_Theme - to change the theme to a light mode?
Currently not yet. I've put it on the to-do list

The property textcolor is always white and I don't find the way to change this.
B4X:
AS_Settings1.PropertyProperties.TextColor = xui.Color_Red
A few color things are still hardcoded, but should be fixed when I have finished the function to switch from dark to light

Hello @Alexander Stolte, I am trying to integrate this library into my project and I am encountering the following problem:

My code:
B4X:
Sub Class_Globals
  Private appSettings As AS_Settings
End Sub

Private Sub B4XPage_Appear
  appSettings.MainPage.AddGroup("set_fed_club", mdlFunctions.loc.Localize("settings_short"))
  appSettings.MainPage.AddProperty_Action("set_fed_club", "set_fed", mdlFunctions.loc.Localize("fed_desc"), mdlFunctions.loc.Localize("fed"), Null, 0)
  appSettings.MainPage.AddProperty_Action("set_fed_club", "set_club", mdlFunctions.loc.Localize("club_desc"), mdlFunctions.loc.Localize("club"), Null, 0)
    
  appSettings.MainPage.AddGroup("set_adv", mdlFunctions.loc.Localize("set_advance"))
  appSettings.MainPage.AddProperty_Boolean("set_adv", "connectTo", "Boolean Value", "Boolean description", Null, True)

  appSettings.MainPage.BottomText = mdlFunctions.loc.Localize("settings_desc")
  appSettings.MainPage.Create
End Sub

The lines 7 and 8 with "AddProperty_Action" show me this "java.lang" :rolleyes:

Line 11 with AddProperty_Boolean, if I don't comment it, it stops the application and generates the following error

The example app doesn't have this problem. I have reviewed the code many times and I cannot solve it. What do you suggest me ?

Hey Alexander,
the example project works great. but as soon as i use it in my app in debug mode i get this error:


B4X:
B4A line: 41
isMainPage = Settings.Pages.NumberOfViews = 0
shell\src\de\dinotec\netplus\as_settingspage_subs_0.java:3125: error: cannot find symbol
__ref.setField ("_ismainpage" /*RemoteObject*/ ,BA.ObjectToBoolean(RemoteObject.solveBoolean("=",as_settingspage._settings.runClassMethod (de.dinotec.netplus.as_settings.class, "_getpages" /*RemoteObject*/ ).runMethod(true,"getNumberOfViews"),BA.numberCast(double.class, 0))));
                                                                                                                          ^
  symbol:   method runClassMethod(Class<as_settings>,String)
  location: variable _settings of type settings
1 error

It works in release mode.

currently i just instantiate it with
Private AS_Settings1 As AS_Settings
nothing else and it still crash while compiling.

any idea whats the cause of this?
