Page Manager

A WebUI app can consist of multiple pages. To see the list of available pages in your WebUI, press the ‘hamburger’ icon page-manager on the top left position of your browser window. The Page Manager will open rendering the page tree structure:

You can add your pages here and structure them in a tree. You can access your pages by clicking on their name

Please note that the new Page Menu and Page Manager are available in AIMMS 4.40+. From AIMMS 4.45 onwards, the Page Manager can also be used when running your WebUI app on PRO.

You can expand a subtree by clicking on the ‘arrow’ “>” in front of a parent page. You can collapse it by clicking on the “v” in front of the parent page. The pages in the Page Manager will always be visible in the Page Menu, unless the visibility of a page is set to either ‘false’ or 0.

The Page Navigator can be used in combination with the Page Menu, but there are a number of settings in the Application Options editor with which you can define how you want this to work:

  • Sidebar Open By Default Use this option to specify whether the Page Manager sidebar should be visible upon opening the WebUI app.

  • Page Manager Hidden Use this option to specify whether you want to offer the Page Manager to your end users or not.

  • Page Menu Hidden Use this option to specify whether you want to offer the (horizontal) Page Menu to your end users or not.

When running on PRO, only the add/rename/delete options are offered to the end-user (i.e. the visibility-toggling and the wizard-creation options are left out).

Details on creating and managing various pages can be accessed using the following scheme:
