    You can use the Iframe UI Pattern to display information from other apps, on your screen, in bite-size previews. For more information about Iframes, see HTML Iframes.

    How to use the Iframe UI Pattern

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

      The Iframe widget is displayed.

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

    3. On the Properties tab, set the relevant properties, for example, the source URL, its title, as well as its width and height. In this example, we use the Wikipedia Website.

      Note: The target destination must have the necessary security permissions that allow you to embed their website in your app.

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

    SourceURL (Text): Mandatory The target URL that loads on the Iframe.


    Title (Text): Optional Iframe title.
