Addressing Conditional Visibility Changes in FlutterFlow and Developing Workarounds Using Xano
The State Changers meeting focused on discussing a change in FlutterFlow's functionality which was altering the State Changers' ability to perform a specific task. This task involved using conditional visibility to select constants, such as 'true' as a Boolean, a feature that seemed no longer available on FlutterFlow. Their alternative was to use Zano to only assign or update a variable in a loop, if the loop condition stands 'true'. By doing so, they could ensure the specific path would never return a false.
The discussion further revolved around a logic setup where the default variable was assigned false, but the State Changers wished to set the default as true. A workaround was contemplated where the absence of a 'true' signal would cause an effect to not show, highlighting three scenarios that could manifest: truthy, falsy, or the absence of a signal.
There was also an untested workaround that was discussed as a potential solution, awaiting the completion of an endpoint in Xano for this testing. The meeting concluded with the understanding that if the FlutterFlow issue was a bug, it would be reported. But if it was an interface change, they would find a way to work around the problem.
This meeting suggests the potential resolution of a challenge arising from a change in FlutterFlow, the strategic use of Zano, and an interesting contemplation of boolean logic in the context of State Changers' objectives.
