There will be times when you want to use external resources in your application. These may be in the form of images, audio files, video files, JavaScript files, UI designs etc. WaveMaker understands these needs and facilitates the usage.

Including Resource Files

  1. From the Developer Utilities option select File Explorer. Here you will find the option to import resources to your app.
  2. Click + to open the Import Resource dialog box
  3. Select the appropriate folder, and Upload Files that need to be imported. You can select multiple files to import.
    Note: Be sure you select the proper folder, this will be used by the binding dialog to filter the files. For example, if you are using an Image widget, you will be selecting the Image type resource and WaveMaker will display only the files from the Images folder.
  4. You can create your own sub-folders. You can also create a nested folder structure by using / as the file separator. For example, to create images sub-folder under style folder in resources, select resources enter images/style under folder name field.
  5. Depending upon the resource imported its usage would differ.
    • In the case of media resources like images, audio files or video files, you can bind them to the appropriate widgets.
    • In the case of JavaScript resource, entry into the index.html file and invoking the script function would require some JavaScript knowledge.
