Some Widgets can be turned into a container for many Widgets.
These Widgets are displayed in a grid showing a certain number of Widgets horizontally (Columns) and vertically (Rows).
These many Widgets are generated automatically based on a data field, and their number may not be known in advance.
If there are too many Widgets contained, Alpana allows to view only some of them, and then use a scrollbar to see the others.
The properties sections “Multi-items Viewport” allows to configure how many Widgets can be displayed at the same time inside the Widget container.
Setting Multi-items Viewport
From the Widget properties
In the Widget properties, the section Multi-items Viewport allows to configure this setting :
From the Dashboard layout
In the Dashboard activity, each Widget has a shortcut to this setting :
By default, Auto is checked and the Viewport is calculated automatically.
By un-checking Auto, you can configure manually the Viewport.
Viewport Column Count allows to configure how many Widgets are displayed horizontally (the number of columns in the grid) :
Viewport Row Count allows to configure how many Widgets are displayed vertically (the number of rows in the grid) :
Flow direction allows to configure how Widgets are placed in the grid :
- Vertical : Widgets are placed from top to bottom, and then left to right. If there are too many Widgets to display, the next pages are on the right.
- Horizontal : Widgets are placed from left to right, then top to bottom (english reading direction). If there are too many Widgets to display, the next pages are at the bottom.
