Change Text with Workflow in an Element

Hello there!

I’m wanting something similar in functionality as an alert component, but with custom styling. What I have build is a floating group with icons and fixed text that appears on the bottom right corner.

I have a lot of different messages I want to display and save at a central location. Right now I’m using the condition of the textfield and setting it to my messages according to a custom state (that I’m going to manipulate with a workflow). Is there any better and more elegant way? Maybe with option sets (haven’t worked with them before)?

Thanks!

Hi there, @dev2… if I understand your post correctly, I would very likely use an option set to define the different messages, if for no other reason than it would be a much cleaner way to manage the messages than defining them directly in conditionals. That being said, I’m sure there would also be other reasons, such as defining attributes for the messages that might make them easier/more efficient to access/display, but I would need to know a lot more about what you are doing and how you are doing it to think through those potential benefits.

Anyway, it seems to me like an option set could be a good way for you to go, and I hope this helps, even if it’s just food for thought.

Best…

Thanks for your reply!

I solved it pretty easy. I just wasn’t aware if I could set a specific option set with a workflow (it works!).
