Magic Text

Magic Text allows you to pull information directly from your Adalo Database dynamically.

Learn About Magic Text

Magic Text is a foundational aspect of Adalo that you must understand in order to create a dynamic and engaging app that is designed well & performant. Magic Text pulls data from the database to display in the app without replicating designs for each record item in the database.

Magic Text is truly ✨Magic✨

Magic Text will automatically be replaced with text from your App's Database. For example, if your screen is showing details for a Trip, you can use Magic Text to show the Trip's Name.

You can display Magic Text for the Logged in User, any item in a list, or any list item that links to the screen you're on.

For example, if you have a travel app that displays options for trips, and you want the user to be able to click on a particular trip and open a screen with more detailed information on that trip:

  1. Insert text boxes, images, or other components

  2. Select the Magic Text icon from your text box's toolbar

  3. Choose the database Collection and the Property you want to add as Magic Text

  4. Click on 'Preview' to make sure the Magic Text works
