You can use standard layouts to design the user interface for your application. The standard layouts are rendered in HTML5 standard mode and are styled in the skin of the application, providing an optimal user experience on desktop, tablet, and mobile phone. You can use layouts within a harness or a section while designing the user interface.

You can use the following layouts while designing the user interface or portal for your application:

  • Screen layouts
  • Dynamic layouts
  • Column layouts

Screen layouts are usually used to create portals for an application and are only used within a harness.

Dynamic layouts and column layouts are used in sections. You can add content, such as properties, controls and other sections, within a section in a dynamic or a column layout. The placement, alignment, width, and arrangement of items in a layout is determined by the format in the skin.
