Sometimes the best way to display data in Storyboard is with tables and table variables. Tables, as well as cells within the table, are able to contain several render extensions aka user interface table variables. This allows them to behave dynamically and perform a wide variety of tasks. In our last tutorial, we walked through a simple introduction to creating tables in Storyboard Suite. In this tutorial, we are going to go a little deeper and venture into table variables.
Before getting started, download the example that we’ve started for you and import it into Storyboard. You should see something that looks like this:
Storyboard Designer gives you the ability to export your project for either archiving, sharing or demo purposes. Here are a couple of easy steps showing you how to do that.
When your Storyboard Project is complete and you are ready to export, right click on the project folder and select Export.
Next you will be presented with the Export Selection dialogue. Expand General by clicking on the triangle to the left of the folder. Select Archive File and then click Next.
Next you will see the Export Archive file box. Here you will see all the folders and files that will be included in the archive you are about to create. Browse to the location where you want to save and then provide a name for your archive. Review and verify your Options and then click Finish.
