Row labels allow you to choose the most important columns in a table. Row labels determine which columns are prominently displayed for that table, similar to a title. One image column and one non-image column can be used as labels. All tables have a non-image label.
You designate the row label in the Data > Columns pane by enabling the Label? setting for the particular column.
You can create a row label containing values from two or more columns as follows:
- Add a virtual column to the table.
- In the App formula field of the virtual column, enter a
CONCATENATE()expression that combines appropriate column values to form the row label. For example:
CONCATENATE([First label column], ", ", [Second label column])
- Disable the Label? property for any existing row label column.
- Enable the Label? property of the virtual column.
- Save your changes.
Row Labels are used throughout the app. Different views use them differently:
- Deck view:
- Image label is used for the image on the left
- Non-image label is used as the top text.
- Table view:
- Non-image label is the first column shown. (Unless you have a custom column order.)
- Gallery view:
- Image label is used for the image
- Non-image label is used as text below the image
- Detail view:
- Image label is shown as a large image on top
- Non-image label is shown directly below the image.
The Ref popup, which is shown when choosing a
Ref row from the form also uses the labels.
