You can use the Columns UI Pattern to split content into separate columns, improving the way information is displayed on-screen.
How to use the Columns UI Pattern
In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for
The various Columns widgets are displayed.
If the UI widget does not display, it may be because you used a ready-made app, which deletes unused widgets from the module. To make additional widgets available in your app:
a. Go to Module > Manage dependencies.
b. Search for and select the relevant Producer, for example OutSystemsUI. Ensure Show All is selected.
c. On the Public elements for the selected Producer displayed on the right, ensure Show All is selected.
d. Search for and select the element you want to add, and click Apply.
e. In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for the widget again.
From the Toolbox, drag the required Column widget into the Main Content area of your application's screen. The following example uses the Columns 2 widget.
Add the required content to the Columns widget. In this example we add an image and text.
On the Properties tab, you can customize the Column's look and feel by setting any of the (optional) properties, for example, the size of the space between each of the columns (GutterSize), and in what order the columns display on different devices.
After following these steps, and publishing the module, you can test the pattern in your app.
|GutterSize (GutterSizeIdentifier): Optional||Defines the space between columns.
|TabletBehavior (BreakColumns Identifier): Optional||Defines how the columns are displayed on tablets. The predefined options for the tablet behavior are:
|PhoneBehavior (BreakColumns Identifier): Optional||Defines how the columns are displayed on phones. The predefined options for the phone behavior are:
|ExtendedClass (Text): Optional||Adds custom style classes to the Pattern. You define your custom style classes in your application using CSS.
