This section contains examples for items we identified as "common" tasks: methods that many users are looking to utilize when first starting out with the Perspective Module or feature in Ignition. Additionally, this section aims to clarify some of the more complex or abstract tasks that our users may encounter.

The examples in this section are self-contained explanations that may touch upon many other areas of Ignition. While these examples are typically focused on a single goal or end result, they can easily be expanded or modified after the fact. In essence, they serve as a great starting point for users new to Ignition, as well as experienced users that need to get acquainted with a new or unfamiliar feature.

Below is a list of common tasks related to this section of the manual.

Popup Views

Popup Views are a great way to enable users to view more detailed information in your HMI. They are also relatively simple to create. 


Navigating with the Horizontal Menu  

The Horizontal Menu component is a great option for easy, quick navigation between pages. For an example, see Navigating with the Horizontal Menu Component.


Self-Hiding Navigation Drawer

A navigation drawer is a special type of docked menu, usually appearing on the left side of a session. What makes a navigation drawer special is its responsive its responsive design. This example walks you through creating a self-hiding navigation drawer that is only displayed when the user needs it.


Configuring a Dashboard 

The Dashboard exposes widgets to end users in a Perspective Session so they can customize their dashboard layout for their individual needs. Widgets are views that are pre-configured in the Designer and made available to Perspective Session users. For an example, see Configuring a Dashboard.


Displaying a Subview in a Table

In a Perspective Table component, you have the option to enable subviews. When a subview is set up, you can click on the Expand icon in the table and have another view be displayed without closing the first view. For an example, see Displaying a View in a Table.
