  • The Scrollable Area Pattern is a simple scrollable block with a placeholder for content. You can use this pattern to display multiple elements in a single, scrollable row or column.

    How to use the Separator UI Pattern

    1. In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for Scrollable Area.

      The Scrollable Area is displayed.

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

      Drag widget to sreen

      By default, the Scrollable Area widget contains a Content placeholder.

    3. Add the relevant content to the Content placeholder.

      In this example, we add some images by dragging the Image widget into the Content placeholder, and on the Properties tab, from the Image dropdown, select the relevant images.

    4. On the Properties tab, you can customize the Scrollable Area's look and feel by setting any of the optional properties, for example, the height and width of the scrollable area.

      Set the optional properties

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