Container

A container holds controls and other containers within it and aligns them similarly.

General

  • Tooltip - Tooltip to be displayed on the container. Use this to provide additional information on the control.

  • Hidden- If true, hides the control at runtime.

  • Disabled - If true, disables the control at runtime.

Events

  • Clicked on - Configure what happens when the container is clicked.

Style

  • Control Alignment - By default, inherits the parent alignment. A different alignment other than the parent can be set. To default back to the parent alignment, deselect the overridden options.

    Note: The alignment is dependent on the layout selected for the parent (Vertical vs Horizontal).
  • Layout - Determine how the controls within the container are positioned:

    • Horizontal/Vertical - The orientation of controls.
    • Alignment- The alignment of controls within the container.
    • Allow wrapping - If selected, wraps the controls in the container.
    • Allow scrolling - If selected, allows scrolling inside the container. To enable Allow Scrolling, the container must have a fixed height (vertical layout) or fixed width (horizontal layout).

  • Background Color - The background color of the container.

  • Border - The border for the control. Border Thickness, Color, and Radius can be configured.

  • Font - The font family for the container layout. All the controls within the container share the same font family. By default, the control inherits the font family of the immediate parent container which is indicated by the keyword "Inherited".

  • Margin- The margin of the layout. By default, a margin of 0px is set. Top/Bottom and Left/Right margin properties are combined. These properties can be detached using the Link button at the right side of the Margin section.

  • Padding - The padding of the layout. By default, a padding of 0px is set. Top/Bottom and Left/Right margin properties are combined. These properties can be detached using the Link button at the right side of the Padding section.

  • Size - The width and height of the container. By default, Width and Height are set to auto. To set custom values, clear the auto option, then enter the values of your choice and the unit of measure (px, %, em).
    To take up the remaining available space, select the fill option in the dropdown. The fill option is available:
    • for Height, when the control layout is set to Vertical

    • for Width, when the control layout is set to Horizontal

    To set minimum and maximum sizes, click the three dots icon to expand Min and max sizes.

  • Advanced - Displays the flex properties of the control.

    • Flex basis - Sets the original size of a flex item before the extra space is distributed or taken away (px, %, em, auto).
    • Flex grow - When extra space is available, this values dictates how much a flex item should grow relative to the rest of the items.

    • Flex shrink - When the space is not enough, this value dictates how much a flex item should shrink compared to the other items.

Important: If the container size has fixed values and if the controls within it occupy more space than the fixed value, then Justify - Middle, Justify - Bottom do not apply in a vertical orientation, and Justify - Center, Justify - Right do not apply in a horizontal orientation.
