Floating of panels in Vue Dashboard layout component

16 Mar 20235 minutes to read

The floating functionality of the component allows you to effectively use the entire layout for the panel’s placement. If the floating functionality is enabled, the panels within the layout get floated upwards automatically to occupy the empty cells available in previous rows. This functionality can be enabled or disabled using the allowFloating property of the component.

The following sample demonstrates how to enable or disable the floating of panels in the Dashboard Layout component.

            <!--  Button element declaration -->
                <ejs-button id="toggle" ref="toggle" class="e-flat e-primary e-outline" :isToggle="true" v-on:click.native="onChange" >Enable Floating</ejs-button>
            <!-- end of button element -->
        <div  id="control_dash">
            <!--  DashboardLayout element declaration -->
            <ejs-dashboardlayout id='dashboard_default' ref="dashboard" :allowFloating="false" :cellSpacing='cellSpacing' :columns="6">
                    <e-panel :sizeX="2" :sizeY="2" :row="1" :col="0" content="<div class='content'>0</div>"></e-panel>
                    <e-panel :sizeX="2" :sizeY="2" :row="2" :col="2" content="<div class='content'>1</div>"></e-panel>
                    <e-panel :sizeX="2" :sizeY="2" :row="3" :col="4" content="<div class='content'>2</div>"></e-panel>
            <!-- end of dashboardlayout element -->
