I am on pg 72, I have flow1 with the inject, change and debug connected. I placed the switch in the flow and clicked deploy as the book says, but the switch does not appear under the dashboard tab or group.
But I do get a message that says I have unused configuration nodes.
In the ui window I still get the welcome screen and nothing else.
Under the dashboard layout it shows only the Tab and the Group, no switch.
Under the info it shows the 4 items in the flow.
If I do something to get the deploy button to light up and then click on it, I get the same result if I reload the ui screen.
Is there something I missed in the instructions?
Also, I just noticed that in the book the switch box has a little red triangle on top -my object box only has a red line around it, no triangle or blue dot.
Solved it ! I grabbed the switch from the function list, which does not do what the book says.
Tthe book probably should make it more clear that you need to go down to the dashboard under the nodes list and use the switch from there.
I am not sure (yet) what the other switch is for).
One thing I am having a problem with is:
When moving to the next example it’s not clear to me if I am supposed to delete the old items before I start the new example or not.
I’m sorry for that issue.
And thank you for warning us about that detail. I’ll add a note on the eBook mentioning that you should pick the switch node from the dashboard section, not the function section.
You can keep the old items and you can create the next flows on a new flow page.
Or you can delete them.
To create a new flow page, you just need to click on the + sign in the top right corner of the flow.
I hope this helps.
Also You might want to point out that the UI might appear slightly differently for different browsers.
At least that what I assume is happening. I use FireFox and I think your book picture looks a little different.
Actually it seems some of the difference is how you configure the browser look/display – with/without a tool bar and maybe other things. If I open a NEW browser window with just the UI tab and remove the tool bar it is almost the same. Just an FYI
Just another FYI,
I have found that when I edit a node or tab or dashboard,
if I leave the default name/label and just add a – with my name/label,
it helps me understand where everything appears on the UI and in the editor.
Later when I am more comfortable or ready to finalize my display, I can remove the default text.
Hi again David.
Thanks for your suggestions.
I’ll take that into consideration in the next eBook update.
Thank you so much.
