  • You can use the Margin Container UI Pattern to add symmetrical padding around a container.

    How to use the Margin Container UI Pattern

    1. In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for Margin Container.

      The Margin Container 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 Margin Container widget into the Main Content area of your application's screen.

      You can add as many Margin Container widgets as you want. In this example, we add 2.

    3. Add the relevant content to the Margin Container placeholder.

      In this example we add an image widget to each of the placeholders and on the Properties tab, import an image using the Image dropdown.

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

    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.
