Dynamic Actions
In this beginner session, APEX Development team member Anthony Rayner, demonstrates the power of Dynamic Actions to declaratively implement client-side interactions. Rather than writing a huge amount of JavaScript, simply select when the Dynamic Action will fire, what actions it will take, and what it will act upon. He also highlights some of the common pitfalls APEX developers should avoid when building Dynamic Actions.
