How to create successful application that ensure adoption
Build successful applications

Learn the process to build apps that provide real value to your work and that other people will definitely want to use as well.

In-line text in parametrization

Use in-line Text to build more descriptive elements in your interface and provide more guidance to your users!

You can add in-line text in the same way that you add all other input fields.

Markdown is supported, which means you will be able to format text, using headings, bullet lists, equations, emoticons and more!

Learn more about in-line text in parametrization in the documentation.

Extended SCIA StatiCA RCS binding

Because you asked for it, we extended the IDEA StatiCa RCS binding again! Now you can create a cross-section with a general shape using a list of coordinates. You can also tweak your calculations by adjusting several code settings such as the number of fatigue cycles, relative humidity, and more! Additionally, the RcsOutputFileParser is now capable of extracting analyses results per extreme load combination.

Learn more in the documentation.


Custom label for update button

In some occasions, users have to click the update button to get a new view but don't know what will happen next if they do so. We have noticed that the update label is not always descriptive enough; that's why we have enabled customization for this button by specifying the update_label in the view!

For example, when your app runs a SCIA analysis, you could use the following label:
