Apps - Widget - Embedded Page icon.png This widget type belongs to the Basic category in the widget library. It enables you to call a child page from another page in the same app (also known as a parent page), and to display it within the parent page.

  • Modifications made to the child page will automatically be displayed in the parent page.

  • The child page must belong to the same app.
  • The entire child page is displayed. You cannot select a specific zone in it.
  • Parent pages and child pages cannot call themselves.
  • A parent page can be the child page of another page.
  • A page can be the child page of several parent pages.
  • Although a given child page may be called several times in a page, it will only be loaded once.
  • To improve performance, child pages are not visible in the graphic editor. They are visible only in execute mode.

Operating principle

          Operating principle.png

(1) A, B and C are three pages created in an app.

(2) Page B is made up of two child pages, A and C.

(3) Page A is made up of two child pages, D and C.

(4) Page A (with child pages D and C) is called by parent page B. It will thus become the child page of page B.

Best Practice

  • Using this widget enables you to restrict the number of elements that are recurrently created in app pages, reduce the number of pages to be maintained, and improve performance.
  • Use the Sidebar widget if you want to display the child page in a pane that users can show or hide as required in the parent page.


  • Display in the graphic editor: the child page is not visible.
        Example - Child page - Edit mode.png
  • Display in execute mode: the child page is visible.
        Example - Child page - Run mode.png
