  • You can use the Cards UI Pattern to group small pieces of information and highlight them on the screen. The information is grouped into a small block that is easily noticeable on-screen.

    How to use the Card UI Pattern

    1. In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for Card.

      The Card widget is 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.

    2. From the Toolbox, drag the Card widget into the Main Content area of your application's screen.

    3. Add your content to the placeholder. In this example we add some text.

    4. On the Properties tab, you can customize the Card's look and feel by setting any of the (optional) properties.

    After following these steps and publishing the module, you can test the pattern in your app.

    Properties

    Property Description
    UsePadding (Boolean): Optional If set to True, padding is applied to the content area. This is the default value. If set to False, the content area has no padding.
    ExtendedClass (Text): Optional Adds custom style classes to the Pattern. You define your custom style classes in your application using CSS.

    Examples

    • Blank - No custom styles are added (default value).
    • "myclass" - Adds the myclass style to the UI styles being applied.
    • "myclass1 myclass2" - Adds the myclass1 and myclass2 styles to the UI styles being applied.
    You can also use the classes available on the OutSystems UI. For more information, see the OutSystems UI Live Style Guide.
