How do you add event handlers to apps (no-code)?

Hey Makerpad Community,

How do you add events handlers in your no-code apps for events like - on button click, on value change, on value enter, on hover, on page load and so on?

At DronaHQ, we have introduced UI Control Events. These events help users define actions that should be triggered when, say, the user is - selecting an item in the drop down menu or changing the selection from a radio control or clicking a button.Β

Using these events you can configure powerful actions like querying your database, sending emails, logic branching, notifications, and more.

Let semi-technical people work with SQL data more easily - Introducing Query Builder in DronaHQ

If there is one way to make most sense out of your datasets, it’s through queries. We’ve introduced a Query Builder control in DronaHQ to effortlessly create dynamic SQL queries for your database and assign to data visualization components.

Superior filter powers to the database

This SQL query builder will help you apply your instincts as a Database Administrator in a no-code way. Simply define a schema that provides the definition for the filters available. The output of the control will provide the WHERE clause that can then be passed as a variable directly to the SQL query.

For example
, you could enrich your customer communication tool from your lead management database. Your data could be sitting on a MySQL database. Using the SQL query builder you can define the rules such as user web sessions, or how many days ago they were last seen on your website, or what subscription plan they are on to filter your customer data set and take action.Β
