Building custom UI capabilities
Dev Studio offers a number of tools that you can use to further customize your application.
Discover more about custom capabilities in the following articles:
- Generating PDFs from your UI
Provide your users with tools to import case information to their own devices. By configuring an out-of-the-box activity to convert case data to a PDF file, you help users access and archive information that is related to their cases with less effort and at any time.
- Creating PDF files by using a compact style sheet
When you create a PDF file by using the Create PDF smart shape in a case type or by using the HTMLtoPDF activity, you can use the pyCompactStylesforPDF compact style sheet instead of the style sheet that the application skin uses. Use this style sheet to generate PDF files and also render certain elements that you cannot render when you use the application skin to generate PDF files.
- Creating auto-generated custom controls
Expand the functionality of your application by adding no-code, auto-generated controls to your user interface. Auto-generated controls are custom controls that use standard controls as templates, and you can integrate them with your application with minimal effort.
- Development of web self-service interface
When you use Pega’s user interface in your existing self-service application, your customers can directly perform tasks in a Pega application. By providing customers with constant access to the information and actions that they seek, you enhance user experience and reduce the number of direct contacts with the call center.
- Pega web mashups for embedding Pega Platform UI in external web pages
You can choose parts of Pega Platform UI that are most suited to your business needs and make them available to users of your websites by creating a mashup. When you use mashups, you save development time and make your web application more engaging, varied, and functional.
- Pega Digital Experience (DX) API
Pega Digital Experience (DX) API is a set of model-driven API endpoints that enable you to remotely view, create, and update cases and assignments.
