Using a Container in a Page

Container element

Note: The information on this article applies only to Web Pages' visualizations.

A Visualization always requires a Container element to wrap any element or Widget (either one or many) but you cannot wrap a Container within another Container.

On a Container Element, you can define up to 4 Columns and also set different widths for each of these Columns. This gives you the possibility to achieve a wide variety of layouts. These Columns behave differently according to the screen size (such as mobile screens).

This is how our grid system adapts, according to screen's size:

Large screens (≥1200px)
Medium screens (≥992px)
Small screens (≥768px)
Extra small screens (<768px)
 Column behavior Horizontal  Vertical (stacked)
 Container width 1170px 970px 750px  Auto (100%)
 Gutter width  30px (15px on each side of a column)

Here you can see an example of the grid system in action and how the columns stack on smaller screens:

Please see the following figure to learn how to add a container, set up the number of columns and customize the width of each column in a Visualization:
