Restricted components

In order to avoid excessively complex situations, certain components, namely Calendar and Kanban, are restricted from being placed within the Container component using drag-and-drop functionality.

If the builder attempts to add any of the aforementioned components inside the container, an error message will be displayed:

<Restricted component> cannot be used as a child component within the container.

Enabling vertical scroll on container

To enable the vertical scroll on the container, drag and place any component to the bottom grid of the container and the container will automatically enable the scrolling.

Loading state

To activate the loader on the container component, access its properties and dynamically adjust the Loading State property by clicking the Fx button. You can set it to either {{true}} or {{false}}.

For instance, if you wish to display the loader on the container when the query named restapi1 is in progress, set the Loading State value to {{queries.restapi1.isLoading}}.
