Updated for iRule Version 1.5. This tutorial covers how to add a Link and Labels to the iRule interface . A Link can be used to jump from one Page to another. Links can also jump between Page on different Panels. Labels can now incorporate Device commands and more capabilities have been added to modify the look of the font.
In an existing Page, drag and drop an image from an image library to the interface window. Before releasing the mouse, hold down the "L" key on the keyboard and the image placed on the interface will be a Link not a button. You will notice that when a cell is highlighted in the interface window, the iRule Builder will show if the image being placed is a button or a link.
In the Link properties, select the panel name, page type and page name of the page that the Link will jump to.
Optional step - You may want to apply Device commands which are executed when a Link is executed. The Device commands are not required to make a link workNavigate to the Devices tab and expand a Device to show the available commands.
Drag and drop a Device command to the Link. Device commands are executed before the Link jumps to another Page. Links can accommodate multiple Device commands and can include delays if necessary. These commands are typically executed in a fraction of second.
In the Panels tree, you can expand to see the command associated with the Link. If there are multiple commands, they will be executed in the order they were placed on the Link.
In the Panels tree, right click on the the Page and select add label from the list.
In the Label properties, you can select a different font from the list, adjust the font size, select a color from the list, apply bold to the font and adjust the alignment.
New in iRule Version 1.5 is the ability to add Device commands to a Label. Navigate to the Device tab and drag and drop a Device command to the label.
Save your work by pressing the save button and your new Links and Labels can be synced to the iRule app.
You'll need a Builder account to try or to use iRule. Once you have a Builder account, download the app to your iOS or Android device.
