Responsive and adaptive layout in ASP.NET MVC Dashboard Layout control

09 Jun 2021 / 1 minute to read

The control is provided with built-in responsive support, where panels within the layout get adjusted based on their parent element’s dimensions to accommodate any resolution which relieves the burden of building responsive dashboards.

The dashboard layout is designed to automatically adapt with lower resolutions by transforming the entire layout into a stacked one, so that, the panels will be displayed in a vertical column. By default, whenever the screen resolution meets 600px or lower resolutions this layout transformation occurs. This transformation can be modified for any user defined resolution by defining the for the mediaQuery property of the component.

The following sample demonstrates the usage of the mediaQuery property to turn out the layout into a stacked one in user defined resolution. Here, whenever, the window size reaches 700px or lesser, the layout becomes a stacked layout.
