Share

The Share action is used to share content (URL, video, text, image, PDF...) thanks to the native features of the devices. It is accessible from an iOS or Android device and from the Safari browser. If you want to create a sharing action from a computer, you can use the social networks web sharing link.

This feature is very useful for mobile applications, editorial platforms, digital publications and product catalogues.

Share with native iOS & Android sharing

This feature builds on the native iOS and Android sharing functionality. It works whether your application is native or web-based.

Here is a preview of the window that opens automatically when the action is triggered.

The applications that are listed are those most commonly used on the device: they can be social applications (Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp) or messaging applications (Messages, Gmail, Google Chat... ) or functional (AirDrop, Print...).

Create sharing action 

The first action is to create your button. Select your object and click on the Share action.

To share a URL or a text, simply fill in the fields. Attention, the option Text + URL is not available for all applications. Some will only display the URL.
If you want to share a media (image, video, PDF...), you have to associate the identifier of this media to your action. To get the media identifier, double-click the name from the Properties window and paste it into a notepad. This is the ID_MEDIA.
