Settings in the Cards app
When you select Cards under Visualization type (1) the settings for the Cards app are displayed. The following settings are mandatory; we used these values in the live example:
- (2) # of columns: 3
- (3) # of rows: 1
- (4) Min card width: 250px
- (5) Max card width: 250px
|# of columns||
warning The number of columns displayed is adjusted based on other settings (minimum card width, browser width, the device used, etc.).
|# of rows||
info If you have lots of records with a high volume of text and images, we recommend using pagination to optimize your Cards app (instead of using none). You can do this by specifying smaller values (for example, 5 or 10) in the # of rows field.
Pagination improves your Cards app functionality by:
|Min card width||Specify the minimum card width. Values can be expressed as:
warning It's not recommended to use high values here.
|Max card width||Specify your preferred maximum card width. Values can be expressed as:
