Container Layout Properties
Clicking Layout from the Element Tool icon displays the Container Layout Properties dialog. The dialog has two tabs: General and Layout.
Use options on this tab to control how Elements within the container are handled, including whether scheduling is allowed, the number of Elements contained and displayed, and whether Elements can appear in random order.
- Enable scheduling for elements - If checked, contributors can schedule and personalize how Elements appear. For more information, see Schedule Personalize.
- Limit the number of contained elements - If checked, CommonSpot limits the number of contained Elements that can appear in this container.
- Limit the number of displayed elements - If checked, CommonSpot limits the number of Elements that can be displayed. While this limits the number that can be displayed, users can insert more Elements than the number you will set here.
- Random display - If checked, Elements within the container display in random order. If the limit for the number of displayed Elements is lower than the limit for the number of Elements the container can hold, all contained Elements display randomly.
Use the Layout tab of the Container Layout Properties dialog to customize the appearance of the Container Element.
- Element Alignment - Sets Container alignment to Left, Center, Right, or the current default, as shown.
- Width - Sets the width of the Container Element in pixels or percentage of screen size.
- Height - Sets the height of the Container Element in pixels or percentage of screen size.
- Background Image - Identifies the current background image or indicates no current background image. Click the Select Image button to display the Image Properties dialog for choosing an existing image or uploading a new image as background for the container area.
- Title - Optionally enter text that is displayed when the end user places their mouse over this part of the page. This text aides web page accessibility as it is set as the value for the title attribute with the HTML DIV element that CommonSpot uses when it inserts the container element.
