Description

A widget is a small "application" with specific functionality that can be easily included into an Elementi project - for instance to display a clock, a scrolling RSS feed, some tweets, Instagram images, the content of a spreadsheet, some interactive buttons, to send a command to the screen etc.

A 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.

To use a widget, simply drag & drop it inside your project from the "Widgets" / "Library" tab within the Browse panel or from Windows Explorer. A widget is typically made of a single SVG file.

How to modify the built-in widgets

The original widgets included into the built-in library cannot be modified by the user - they can however be used as a base for new widgets. To create a modified version of a widget, follow these steps:

  1. Open the "Widgets" / "Library" tab and select the widget to modify.
  2. Copy it to the clipboard (CTRL+C, or using the toolbar icons) and paste it into the current project.
  3. Edit the widget according to your needs.
  4. Save the changes.
