Dashboard Section Attributes

Overview

Dashboard Sections are used to group multiple related sections and display them horizontally to form a dashboard. From v5.2.

Dashboard Section


Example Dashboard App

The 'Example Dashboard' App (example_dashboard) is included in the Lianja App Builder distribution and demonstrates how to build a digital dashboard using a dashboard Section and multiple related sections of other types.

Example Dashboard App

In the Development View the Sections can be seen arranged vertically on the Page as normal.

Dashboard Section


The top section (here named 'section2') is the dashboard Section. The other Sections: Form, Grids and Charts all have their Dashboard group attribute set to the name of the dashboard section:

section2

Once you switch to the Desktop App View, the grouped sections are arranged based on their order and their horizontal or vertical stretch attributes.

In the Example Dashboard App in the Lianja App Center screenshot above, the vertical stretch of the Grid sections is set to 50 (%) and that of the Chart sections set to 33.333 (%).

For a row of horizontal Sections, the horizontal stretch can be set for each Section as a percentage of the whole.

Dashboard Group Section Attributes

The following Section Attributes are used with sections that are part of a dashboard group.

Dashboard group

The dashboard section that this section belongs to.

Horizontal stretch

The horizontal % stretch factor that this section should occupy.

Vertical stretch

The vertical % stretch factor that this section should occupy.

Cell padding

Padding for the cells.

Cell CSS

CSS for the cells. This can be, for example name:value;name2:value or bootstrap classes, e.g. border-dark rounded boxshadow.
