The Lightning Component modern framework is a User Interface framework to develop dynamic web apps for mobile and desktop devices. As is the case with each release, the latest Summer’20‘ release is packed with rich features including, the newly added Lightning Component features!
Last weekend Summer’20 release arrives in Sandboxes, as a result, your organization now gets the look and feel of Summer’20 release.
In case you have not read the entire 526 pages of Salesforce Summer’20 release notes, check out Summer’20 release quick summary and the Top 10 Lightning Experience Gems of Salesforce Summer’20 Release! written by me.
I combed through the release notes and highlighted the added capabilities to the Lightning Component features. Believe me, it was hard to stop at just five! To kick things off, here is my take on the coolest Lightning Component features from Summer’20 release.
1. Communicate Across Salesforce UI Technologies with Lightning Message Service (Generally Available):- Use Lightning message service to communicate across the DOM—between Visualforce pages, Aura components, and Lightning web components, including components in a utility bar. You can use it to communicate between components within a single Lightning page or across multiple pages. If you’re switching from Salesforce Classic to Lightning Experience, you can now build Lightning web components that can communicate with existing Visualforce pages and Aura components. You can also use Lightning message service to communicate with softphones via Open CTI.
