This page is about the widgets included into Elementi 2016.
For other versions, see Elementi 2017 Widgets, Elementi 2015 Library and Elementi 3.x Library pages.


Elementi 2016 comes with more than 400 free resources to be used inside your projects: 200+ widgets and 195 country flag images. Each widget offers different parameters / properties that the user can change from the interface, thus allowing for further customization of the widget functionality without having to modify the code behind.

These resources are accessible using the "Widgets" tab within Browse panel and are divided into several collections, as detailed below; they can be opened for viewing directly from the "Widgets" tab, but they cannot be modified (see how to create new widgets instead).

To use any resource from the widget library, follow these steps:

  1. Create a new project or open an existing one. The content of the project is shown in the Preview panel.
  2. Click on the "Widgets" tab within the Browse panel.
  3. Navigate inside the collection holding the widget you want to use.
  4. Drag and drop the widget into the Preview panel or into the Edit panel. The widget is automatically copied into the active project.
  5. Double-click on the widget icon within the Edit panel to access and configure its properties (if any).
