Hello,

The Properties tab in the settings window is blank when we try to create an app using AppStudio Desktop. This is happening on any app we try to create. How can we fix this?

Thank you

Jessica

Hi Jessica,

 

Thank you for raising this bug.

 

We have identified a fix for this issue, and it is scheduled to be included in the October 2022 update of AppStudio 5.4.

Until this fix is available, there is a work around that I can suggest to get the properties tab for your app.

  1. In AppStudio, right click on your app in the app gallery, and then click on Open in folder. This should open your app directory in the file explorer.
  2. In this directory, create a file by the name appschema.json with the following contents.
{
    "propertiesInfo": {
        "title": "",
        "categoryInfos": [
            {
                "title": "",
                "propertyInfos": [
                ]
            }
        ]
    }
}

 

Now when you open the Settings tool in AppStudio and navigate to the Properties section, you should see two tabs. The first tab will be blank, and in the second tab the properties table should be available.

 

It might not be the best looking solution from a UI perspective at this point. But you should be able to enter properties for your app in this table, and access them within your app using

 app.info.properties.<property name>

 

Hope this works for you.

 

Thanks,

Anshuman
