The Pages/States panel in Catalyst allows you to create and manage view states. A new application will have a single state, but the panel allows you to create as many additional states as you want. States can either be created as duplicates of an existing state or as new blank states.

Catalyst gives each state a default name of Page1, Page2, and so forth. You should give each state a logical name descriptive of its contents or purpose in the application. State names can contain only letters, numbers and underscores; you cannot use spaces.


  1. On the Pages/States panel, double-click Page1.

  2. Type HomeState, as shown in Figure 1.

  3. Click Duplicate State.

  4. Double-click Page2.

  5. Type SubscriptionState, as shown in Figure 2.

  6. Repeat Steps 3 through 5 to add any additional states (see Figure 3). In this example, you will want a total of five states:

    • HomeState

    • SubscriptionState

    • ContactState

    • FeaturedState

    • SearchState

    Each state should be a duplicate of the prior state.

NOTE

Duplicate states copy everything from the current state. Duplicating states is useful in applications like this one that have common elements such as headers, navigation and footers. Blank states are just that: a completely empty artboard from which you can build a new state from scratch.
