Applying design templates

Suggest edit Updated on April 11, 2020

Make your applications consistent and save development time by using design templates. Design templates represent common user interface patterns and specify regions in which you add user interface elements, such as icons and controls.

For example, a Card with image template provides a space for a large image at the top of the user interface and a space for fields and controls below.

  4. In the configuration pane on the right, click the Change template icon.

  5. In the Select a template window, click the template that you want to apply to the view.

  6. In the configuration pane on the right, add fields, sections, and controls to the template:

    1. In the header of the area to which you want to add the UI component, click the Add icon.
