Skin form — Components tab — Layouts — Screen layouts

Styles set here apply to screen layout formats. Screen layouts are available only to user interfaces rendered in HTML5 document type. As a best practice, update deprecated panel sets to use screen layouts.

Screen layouts are for portal harnesses only. You should use a column layout within a harness container to format a non-portal harness that creates a form tag.

You can specify responsive breakpoints for screen layout formats with left and/or right regions. When the user resizes the panel to the breakpoint dimensions that you specify, the panel becomes accessible from an icon in the header.

You specify the responsive breakpoints for a format in the skin; you enable them in the screen layout. In the screen layout, select the User resizable check box on the properties panel of the appropriate regions in the screen layout.

A preview of the currently selected format displays to the right. You can also preview formats by selecting Actions Launch in the toolbar and then choosing one of the following preview options: Run Process, Open Portal, Harness Preview, UI Gallery Preview, Skin Preview.
