You can use the Card Background UI Pattern to group small pieces of information and highlight them on the screen using a background image. The information is grouped into a small block that is easily noticeable on-screen.
How to use the Card Background UI Pattern
In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for
The Card Background 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.
From the Toolbox, drag the Card Background widget into the Main Content area of your application's screen.
By default, the Card Background widget contains a Content placeholder with some text and a Background Image placeholder with an image.
Add your content to the placeholder. In this example we change the image. To do this, from the Widget Tree, select the Image, and on the Properties tab, from the Image drop-down, select the image you want to display.
On the Properties tab, you can change the look and feel of the Card Background widget, by setting the (optional) properties, for example, the background color that overlays the image, the content's position and a minimum height for the card.
After following these steps and publishing the module, you can test the pattern in your app.
|Color (Color Identifier): Optional||Set the background color. Red, orange, yellow, lime, green, blue, violet, and pink are just some of predefined colors available for the badge.
|Position (PositionExtended Identifier): Optional||Sets the widget position.
|Height (Integer): Optional||Set the height of the Card (in pixels). By default, the content is vertically aligned.
