Button
Convert Button component to Android/iOS code.
Buttons are the most used components in apps and they have app-specific actions. Buttons can have a title, background, or image as property/class. They may include more than one property. A button can have both properties at the same time. For example, background and title, or title and image, etc.
You can convert rectangles, images and texts in your design into buttons on Monday Hero. All you need to do tagging the elements with the properties. They are already automatically selected by Monday Hero, incase it tags properties wrong you can reselect them anytime. Here are some button examples with the properties:
Button Examples
Buttons have 3 properties in Monday Hero:
Title: The text displayed over the button.
Background: It's the background of the button. It can be either an image or it can be a view like a rectangle.
Image: Icons are good examples of image buttons. They designed for having app-specific actions.
Here is another button example below. In this case, Monday Hero automatically understands the blue rectangle as View and gets background color from the rectangle. So, tagging the "Follow" text as the Title and the rectangle as Background will be enough. How to create a button and add a property/class can be seen in the GIF below.
Example of button creation that has a title in Monday Hero.
When the button is created, the generated code will be like below.
