Preview a portal that you develop to verify that different types of devices, such as a desktop computer or a smartphone, correctly display the user interface.
When you preview the application, you can turn on the design mode to modify the user interface.Note: Device preview is not a substitute for application tests on an actual device.
- In App Studio, click Preview application, and then select a portal that you want to preview by clicking the portal list next to the application name.
- In the navigation pane of App Studio, check the preview size by hovering over the monitor, tablet, and mobile phone icons. Result: Different preview shapes indicate the screen size for every device.
