Function Component

Function Component

A Function component is a component that runs a function, but doesn't appear visible in a published Space. It can then be used to populate other components.

Ways to Use the Function Component

The simplest use-case for the function component is as a way to populate multiple components in a given Space without needing to make multiple database queries.

  1. Add the Function Component from the component selector menu
  1. Click the Function component in the Space editor, and set a data source and function from the righthand component editor
  1. Add components to your Space and bind them to the output of the Function component using the "Binding" selector in the "Source" section of the righthand component configuration editor
  1. Then, using the same flow, add additional components which make use of the same Function component's output
