What are Inputs?

Article contents



In the User Interfaces  page you can create UIs. To create functional UIs, you need to add elements. Inputs are elements that allow the app-maker to gain information from end-users, and the end-user to interact with the app.

Before moving forward, read our Getting Started with User Interfaces article to make sure you understand the fundamentals of UIs.

Note: We recommend you add inputs to Containers. Learn more here.
