Interface patterns provide you with a combination of components and dynamic expressions to achieve common user-interface designs. This page contains a searchable list of all interface patterns.
Appian provides two types of patterns:
In Palette: These patterns are available to drag-and-drop from the component palette in DESIGN MODE:
Recipe: These patterns are available as instructional recipes right here in the docs. The instructions for these patterns contain an expression that you can copy and paste into your interface in EXPRESSION MODE.
Whether the pattern you're interested in is available in the palette or from a recipe, be sure to check out How to Adapt a Pattern for Your Application if you're new to working with interfaces.
Many of the patterns in the docs (including those patterns that use record types) rely on the same example data. To create that example data and supporting objects, follow the Use the Write to Data Store Entity Smart Service Function on an Interface pattern. If a pattern uses a record type, we also recommend completing the Records Tutorial to create the record type and additional objects.
