Our Knowledge Base covers a wide variety of technical topics, from the basic to the complex.
Where can I find icons to use in my app?
We have loaded some graphics to our servers so you can colorize and enliven your QuickBase applications. You can display status, priority and virtually any condition with rich colorful eye-catching icons. There are over 500 icons loaded in five standard pixel sizes 16×16, 24×24, 32×32, 48×48 and 128×128.
These graphics will load quickly and are not subject to roles and permission checking in QuickBase. The result… large reports can now update many graphics without delay.
Below is a sampling of some of the icons:
All the icon graphics are
https://www.quickbase.com/db/9kaw8phg?a=ShowPage&pageid=134. Choose an icon size to show all the icons of that size. On the resulting report, right-click the link to the file, and save it for use in dashboards, forms and formula fields.
One example of how to use the graphics in your QuickBase app:
Create a Formula - Text field for one of your tables.
Browse and select one of the links at the top of this page: https://www.quickbase.com/db/9kaw8phg?a=ShowPage&pageid=134.
Right-click and copy the URL locations of the graphics you'd like to use and insert them into the formula. For example:
"Not Started","<img src=\"https://images.quickbase.com/si/16/227-rect_red.png\">",
Don’t forget to check the “Allow some HTML tags” checkbox -- the formula result is an HTML img tag.
Include the new field on your reports.
