Responsive UI with the Dynamic Table in Visual Builder by Bino Kohli


Oracle’s Dynamic Components are now available in Oracle Visual Builder’s components exchange. These components help you develop user interfaces that dynamically change what content is shown and how it is shown based on rules that you define. In this blog, we will show how a dynamic table can be used to create responsive applications and do content manipulation based on the size of the device.

If a dynamic layout is created conditionally based on the device size, you have the opportunity to tailor content and tweak user interactions based on the context of your users. The dynamic components uses rules that you define to decide which data to show and how to show it. Dynamic components rule engine is a powerful tool to conditionally render data on the UI. You can use the rule engine to dynamically control what is displayed in the UI. The layout engine has multiple inbuilt conditions and one of them is screen size. By accessing the screen size and creating different layouts for different screen sizes, we can control what is displayed on the screen and how it will be displayed.

For example, If a sales executive is viewing Sales data, for the Desktop layout, you would like to look at a user case of viewing complete sales data (Quarter, Total Sales, America, Europe, and names of sales representatives bringing in the sales). Whereas, in the case of Tablet, you would like to look at a simpler user case of viewing only the main KPI values(Quarter, Sales, America, and Europe). Also, due to the limited real estate on a mobile device, you would like to look at an even simpler user case of viewing only (Quarter, and Sales). Hence, you would notice some of the columns, or other UI elements getting hidden in tablet and mobile.
