Add Action

Actions are a sequence of commands that can be triggered by several components (buttons, timers, shaking the device, etc) in Kwik. The Add Action window allows you to set functions into your project. When pressed, the following window appears (notice that Kwik uses the same window for buttons, which explains why some options are disabled as they are used only in button scenarios):
