Client side development

Within this documentation, we will first create a book listing page where we will list the books. Then, we will create a Book definition page where we can create and edit books. As part of the CRUD operations, we will write the Book API on the ASP.NET Core side.

Creating the Books Page

Create book folder under the Flowfy.Web/src/pages, and then create books.tsx page inside of book folder.

In book.tsx file we have such as code as below.

Flowfy.Web is a node.js project, the others one are ASP.Net core projects.

import { FC, useState } from 'react';
import useProxy from 'src/hooks/useProxy';
import DataGrid from 'src/components/DataDisplay/DataGrid';
import TransactionPage, {
} from 'src/components/Layout/TransactionPage';

const Books: FC<TransactionPageProps> = (props) => {
    const proxy = useProxy();
    const [books, setBooks] = useState<any[]>([]);

    const fetchBooksCommand = async () => {
        const response = await proxy.get<any[]>('/api/app/book/', {
            showListedDataCountMessage: true
        if (response.success) {

    return (
            commands={{ fetchBooksCommand }}

export default Books;

Import the book.tsx page in pages/index

Defining Books page

In this part we will define Books page and then we will define actions of Books page.

Open the Pages page in Flowfy app to define the Books page

Parent menu: Determines where the page will be positioned in navigation menu.

Page Name*: It is the page title that will be visible in the menu and everywhere.

Code*: It is the name of the lazy import as below, also you will use this code to show a page.

Example code;

pageManager.showDialog('YourPageCode', {
  width: 1150, height: 720

Path*: Physical path of the file but just replaced 'src/pages' with '/app' as below.

Show In Navigation Menu: Determine whether the page is visible or not in the navigation menu.

Active: Determines whether the page is active or inactive. If it is set to false, it will not be visible in the menu and will be disabled for use.

After click save action, our page added. Then manage the page Actions.

Defining Books Page Actions

In Flowfy, Pages and page's actions are definition based, and permissions depends on page's actions.

For example: If the user does not have permission for the Save action, they will not be able to see the Save button in the toolbar.

Action Type: There are 2 types of actions

  • Default: For the default actions on toolbar.

  • Virtual: Only for the permissions. For example; If you want to show the father's name field only to developers, in this case, you need to use virtual permission.

Name*: Name of the action on toolbar.

Command Name*: Command Name: The name of the method that will be executed when the action is clicked on the code side.

If you want to disable or hide a action add prefix CanExecute or CanVisible to the command name.

// this method is always running, 
// so don't use proxy calls inside of method
const CanExecutefetchBooksCommand = () => {
    return true;
// hide or visible the action.
const CanVisiblefetchBooksCommand = () => {
    return true;

return (
        commands={{ fetchBooksCommand, 
        CanVisiblefetchBooksCommand  }}

Now, refresh the app and you will see the your Books page.

We added some temp data to the Books table.
