    How to use the Section Group UI Pattern

    1. In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for Section Group.

      The Section Group 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. To From the Toolbox, drag the Section Group widget into the Main Content area of your application's screen.

      By default, the Section Group widget contains 3 Section widgets which contain Title and Content placeholders.

    3. Add your content to the placeholders.

      In this example, we add a title to the Title placeholder and some text to the Content placeholder.

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

      HasStickyTitles = False

      HasStickyTitles = True

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


    Property Description
    HasStickyTitles (Boolean): Optional If set to True, the section titles stay at the top of the page while the user scrolls through the content. If false, the section titles scroll with the content.
    TopPosition (Integer): Optional Sets the position of the first section title. Only applicable when HasStickyTitles property is set to True.
    ExtendedClass (Text): Optional Adds custom style classes to the Pattern. You define your custom style classes in your application using CSS.


    • 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.
