Container Component

Configuration Options
Theme Options


The container component can be used to group multiple components together. It also supports dynamic views, allowing different sets of component to be visible based on dynamic properties.

For example, you can create a card component to show details including an image, title and description.


Configuration Options

Auto Height

Expected Type: Boolean

If set to true, the container automatically adjusts the height based on it's contents.

Note: Manually changing the height in the layout settings has no effect when this is enabled.


The container can show different sets of components based on the view set. This is useful to create permission based containers or zero states.


Creating a view

You can add more views by clicking the + View button in the container's configuration setting. Each view can be configured with the following properties:

Property Description Type Example
Title The title for the view, just used for readability within configurations. String Zero State
Key The key for this view. This is what's used to set the view dynamically String zeroState

Setting views dynamically

Views can be dynamically set through other components such as buttons and tabs. So, for example, we want to change the view on a button click.

  • Open the button configuration.
  • Add a Click action trigger.
  • For the action, select Control component.
  • For the component, select the container you want to switch the view for.
  • For the component property, select Container View.
  • Add the key for the view to set as the New Value.

  • Mouse Leave: Triggers whenever the mouse stops hovering over the component.
