Sub Sections

Subsections

Introduction

In some cases, your application is more complex and needs several navigable sections (e.g. one screen for insights and another for management). The Admin Framework offers the possibility to create section navigation items that work in a similar way.

Activity

  1. Remove the path from the navigation we had used before and add a new subSectionItems field with an empty array:
{
  "section": "orders",
  "titleId": "admin-example.navigation.label",
- "path": "/admin/iotraining",
  "searchKeyWordsHelpers": "admin-example.navigation.search.kws",
+ "subSectionItems": []
}
  1. Add an element to the array of subSectionItems with a labelId and a path (which can be the same as the previous one):
{
  "section": "orders",
  "titleId": "admin-example.navigation.label",
  "searchKeyWordsHelpers": "admin-example.navigation.search.kws",
  "subSectionItems": [
+   {
+     "labelId": "admin-example.navigation.insight",
+     "path": "/admin/iotraining",
+   }
  ]
}
  1. Add another element with a different labelId and another path:
{
  "section": "orders",
  "titleId": "admin-example.navigation.label",
  "searchKeyWordsHelpers": "admin-example.navigation.search.kws",
  "subSectionItems": [
+   {
+     "labelId": "admin-example.navigation.insight",
+     "path": "/admin/iotraining",
+   },
+   {
+     "labelId": "admin-example.navigation.management",
+     "path": "/admin/otheriotraining",
+   }
  ]
}
  1. With the new paths, make the necessary changes to routes.json:
{
  "admin.app.example": {
    "component": "adminExample",
    "path": "/admin/app/iotraining"
  },
+ "admin.app.otherexample": {
+   "component": "adminOtherExample",
+   "path": "/admin/app/otheriotraining"
+ }
}
  1. Create the new adminOtherExample.tsx component at the root of the react/ folder:

/react/adminOtherExample.tsx

import React, { FC } from 'react'

const AdminOtherExample: FC = () => {
  return <h1>Other Example!</h1>
}

export default AdminOtherExample
  1. Finish by creating the messages for each of the labelId defined in step 3:

/messages/pt.json

{
  "admin-example.navigation.label": "Treinamento de IO",
  "admin-example.navigation.search.kws": "mock, test, treinamento, io",
+ "admin-example.navigation.insight": "Informações",
+ "admin-example.navigation.management": "Gerenciamento"
}

/messages/en.json

{
  "admin-example.navigation.label": "IO Training",
  "admin-example.navigation.search.kws": "mock, test, training, io",
+ "admin-example.navigation.insight": "Insights",
+ "admin-example.navigation.management": "Management"
}

/messages/es.json

{
  "admin-example.navigation.label": "Entrenamiento de IO",
  "admin-example.navigation.search.kws": "mock, test, entrenamiento, io",
+ "admin-example.navigation.insight": "Información",
+ "admin-example.navigation.management": "Administración"
}

The expected result is, then:

adminadmin
