Call Node

Description

A call node is a system-facing step that allows you to connect logicnets together.

Use

By creating logicnets that focus on a particular function or series of actions allows logicnet designs to be more modular and reusable. To connect logicnets together, a user can insert a call node. As an end-user runs through the steps of a logicnet and then reaches a call node, the system will "jump" to the connected logicnet and then either return to the original logicnet or end in the connected logicnet, depending on how the nodes are connected.

Description

Basic

Library project

Text

O

When another project is configured as a library, it is selectable here and that enables public logicnets in that library project to be selected (using the elipsis) in the Logicnet to call field. (For more information on library projects, go to the support article called Libraries)

Basic

Logicnet to call:

Text

M

This is the name of the logicnet that will be called at this step in the overall pathway.

Basic

Context path:

Text

O

 Putting a "container" name here will mean all variables created wihin the called logicnet will be stored in the context within this container, and NOT in the global context.

Basic

Collection:

Collection

O

 Repeating forms use this field to name the array in which all the form data is stored. Go to the Tab Control support article for more information

Basic

Class: Text O  This field can be used to access style settings to be applied to any UI within the called logicnet. It is also used automatically by the repeating form functionality.

Advanced Use


Call nodes play an important part in three substantial areas of functionality used in many LogicNets applications. Separate support articles have been written for these topics.
 

  • Many UI-heavy applications have some need for repeated input - forms that collect the same types of data for different objects (e.g. locations, products, etc.) Download and import the project ASF How-To Guide - Repeating Inputs for more information on this.
  • Libraries can house common logicnets for use across multiple applications. Go the the Libraries support article for more info.
  • Functions are logicnets that take input parameters, go through a user-defined process and issue output variables. They are called using a Call Node that shows an additional Parameters tab where the Designer User can enter the specific values to be used in the function. Go to the Functions support article for more info.
