Dynamically resize the height of panels in JavaScript (ES5) Dashboard Layout control

27 Jul 2021 / 2 minutes to read

In Dashboard Layout, the height of a panel is based on its width. While resizing the panel, the height and width should be changed.

To resize the height of a panel alone, the resizePanel method is used. In this case, the cellAspectRatio property configures the height of the cells based on the cell width to height ratio (cell width/cell height ratio) when the height will not be completely adjusted to sizeY value.

Refer to the following code snippet to determine the height of a panel.

        columns: 4,
        panels: [{
            id:'panel0', 'sizeX': 1, 'sizeY': 1, 'row': 0, 'col': 0,header: '<div>Panel 0</div>',
            content: '<div class="content" id="panelContent">Place your content here</div>'

    var panelContent = document.getElementById("panelContent");    
    var panelHeight = panelContent.offsetHeight;
    var panelWidth = panelContent.offsetWidth;
    var diff = Math.round(panelHeight/panelWidth);  
    dashboardObject.resizePanel('panel0', 1, diff);
    dashboardObject.resizePanel('panel1', 1, diff);
