Displaying content for user, comparing Variable in Data Master

Need Answer Daniel 6 years ago

Hello Community!

I am trying to display Admin tools to people who have logged in with an account that has an Admin role.


I have created a Data Master named "Login_Details". This currently holds all the users' Login name, Password and Role.

Role can be either "User" or "Admin".

I track the currently active user with a variable named "Active_User". The users login name gets stored in here if they successfully log in, so that I can easily refer to them throughout the application.

After they sign in, I want to show or hide UI elements depending on this role.

I wanted to use the variable "Active_User" to look at specific columns in a row of my Data Master, see what their role is and use that as a condition to show/hide the UI.


The above post has been a great help establishing some logic, but I am not quite there yet.

Something is missing, but I am fairly new to way JustinMind wants us to build the conditions that I am overlooking something probably very obvious.

The attached file shows my current attempt, plus the reasoning that got me there.

Any advise would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Daniel,

If possible, can you upload the prototype to a file sharing service like Dropbox and link to it here? We can offer more concrete guidance that way.




Hello Danielle!

You can find the .vp file here; https://drive.google.com/open?id=1t_Gz_iC4doyVzuaE2eXmtaKVe3irrtql

At the moment it is still very bare bones, but just so you know where to look for my 'code';

After logging in, the initial screen, users get taken to the Main screen.

Here you`ll find the "edit users" button, which has a condition to its display. This condition is the problem at the moment, as it does not do what I want it to do :D

Thank you very much for your help.
