Layout Widgets


Apps - Widget - Layout 12 icon.png, Apps - Widget - Layout 6 icon.png, Apps - Widget - Layout 4 icon.png, Apps - Widget - Layout 3 icon.png, Apps - Widget - Layout 2 icon.png These types of widgets belong to the Layout category in the widget library. They are used to define the position of widgets in the app.

To make positioning easier, the screen is divided into rows, each virtually separated into a maximum of 12 columns of equal width. Depending on the size of the device (e.g. computer screen, smartphone, tablet or TV), a widget can occupy all 12 columns (one whole row) or several widgets can be displayed in the same row.

You can predefine the position of widgets within a row in several ways. The size of each position can be adjusted manually at a later time.
