Discussing Custom Container Creation and Manipulation for Farmers Bar App
The State Changers had a technical meeting where they focused on solving a specific issue within an app linked to visual representations of a task's progress. The problem revolved around how to display a variable's threshold either as it progresses or is completed, visibly represented by turning green or red. One participant wanted to understand whether it was necessary to create two more containers for the true/false state as the current representation only signified progress and not completion status.
Ray, one of the participants, suggested that rather than creating extra containers, they could simply use data binding and set up the color dynamically based on the information provided within a container. He clarified that the color should be determined locally within the container and not from the app state, as it's likely part of a repeating group within the app.
They concluded that the hex color could be directly fed from the back end to provide the required color changes. The meeting ended on a high note with all participants expressing gratitude for the productive discussion.
