Modify UI element configuration based on an event
I have a requirement where configuration of a UI element needs to be modified based on selection of a checkbox. Other than defining multiple UI elements for the same property and displaying only 1 of them conditionally can work for me but this is not really a clean way of implementing it. In other programming languages, we can modify the configuration of a UI element from JS or by making server calls. Is there a similar functionality provided in Pega 7?
Example, on checking a checkbox, format button should become Strong from Default.
Can we write JS for it? If so, how could we refer to the element we are looking for and how do we call our function? Or can Activities do it? How to get the handle of the UI element? Any way other than defining in an Activity?
