Settings in 2sxc 🆕 in 12.03

Settings allow your code to use predefined settings across all apps and sites. And they allow you to overide a setting at any level of the application. You can read more about the settings in the docs 📕.


Settings Stack

Settings are stacked in a way that the View-settings have a higher priority than App-settings, which has a higher priority than Site, etc. In rare cases you may want to explicitly check for a setting at a specific place in the stack.

This example has a setting called CustomColor which is set at App and View level. Using GetSource(...) we can access a specific source.

  •   @Settings.CustomColor: #4CAF50CC
  •   @Settings.GetSource("View").CustomColor:
  •   @Settings.GetSource("App").CustomColor:
  •   @Settings.GetSource("Site").CustomColor:
    Note: this will be empty, as Site doesn't have this setting)
  •   @Settings.GetSource("Global").CustomColor:
    Note: this will be empty, as Site doesn't have this setting)
