Audio Player

An Audio Player component is used to play audio. It accepts a URL as its value.

Adding an Audio Player component

To add a Star Rating to your app screen:

  • Select the Audio Player component from the Components drawer. You can open the list of components by clicking the + button next to Components.
  • In the Data tab (third tab) in the Properties Panel, add the URL of the Audio file to be played.

In the example above, we're adding a static audio file URL in the URL input data tab. This input field also accepts data variables when placed inside curly braces {{someVariable}}.

Style Properties

Style properties allow you to customize the look and feel of the component. Combinations of styles applied to components can be saved as Stylesheets to easily reuse styles throughout your app. Styles can also be set dynamically using Variables. To learn more about all the different styling properties and how they work, take a look at Intro to Styling.
