Get the most out of the App Designer with this advanced options step by including Data Objects and Event Scripts in your portal app.

Data Objects

Data objects refer to discrete units of information that are structured and organized within a computer system or database. When we refer to a “data object,” we essentially mean that this particular set of data should be considered an independent entity. Data objects come in a variety of forms, including data tables, lists, forms, pointers, records, files, and sets.

With data objects in Comidor App Designer, you can power up your event scripts in any app and quickly and easily create any type of data set you need.Data Objects | Comidor Platform
