To show the properties of the Picker View, click the Properties tab (the slider icon) in the upper right sidebar.

  • Name
    Here you give the element a name. This name is only used within appdoo. For example, you can quickly see in the outline where each Date Picker is located. You can also edit the name by double-clicking on the Date Picker in the outline. We recommend that you assign unique names when working with Layout Constraints and Data Links.

  • Labels
    Here you specify the possible options. Each option is on a separate line.

  • Selected #
    Specify the position of the option selected at startup.

  • Background Color
    Here you define the background color of your Picker View.

  • Hidden
    If you activate this checkbox, your Picker View will still be present on your work space, but will not be displayed in the app. This can be useful, for example, if you only want to display the Picker View under certain circumstances. You can control this via the “Hidden” field in the “Data Links” area.


All information about this area can be found on the separate Geometry page.
