Steps To Import This Plugin

  1. Go to the Joget Marketplace plugin page here:

  2. Click "Download" on this plugin screen (It will be a .jar file).

  3. Go to your Joget server, and login as admin.

  4. Navigate to "Admin Bar > Settings > Manage Plugins" and click "Upload Plugins" button.

  5. In "Upload Plugin", select the plugin .jar file you just downloaded, then click "Upload".

  6. Depending on the plugin type, you can now use the new plugin in your form or datalist or userview.

  7. The Joget Knowledge Base has more information on managing and developing plugins.

  8. Alternatively, you can click Download from Marketplace from the App Center and search for Card Viewer Datalist Formatter plugin to install it.

Steps to use the Plugin:

  1. Start the Joget server and open the App Center.

  2. Login as admin and click on Design New App (See Figure 1) or click on existing application.

  3. For new application, fill up the App ID with camel case, App Name and click on Save button. (See Figure 2)

  4. Create New Form, fill up Form Details and click on Save button. (See Figure 3)

  5. In the form, drag two Text Fields and an Image Upload to upload image. (See Figure 4)

  6. Fill up the Text Fields and File Upload, for example:
    1. First textfield field with id = 'name'
    2. Second textfield field with id = 'desc'
    3. File Upload field with id = 'image'

  7. Click save and generate a CRUD. (See Figure 5)

  8. Edit the newly created datalist and edit the Name column to add the Card Viewer Datalist Formatter. (See Figure 6)

  9. Configure the Card Viewer Datalist Formatter by referring to Figure 7.

  10. After making sure that you are only displaying the Name column in the datalist, save the datalist.

  11. Next, go to the userview builder and add a new form element. (See Figure 8)

  12. After that, edit the CRUD and remove the Form (Edit) and save the userview. (See Figure 9)

  13. If you have followed steps that have been provided, you can click on Preview but nothing will be showed because no data were keyed in the Form yet.

  14. Therefore, you need to fill in the Form that you have been created, for example:
    a. Fill in the Name with 'Alex'
    b. Fill in the Description with 'Working as IT Support'
    c. Upload an image to be displayed in the card.

  15. Finally, you can see the final result in the Userview. (See Figure 10)
