To insert a graphic on a script page, add an image component:

  1. On the component toolbar, click .

  2. Click the Common properties group.

  3. From the Image Source list, select one of the following:

    1. To specify the Internet address of an image, select Interpolated Text. and enter the URL for the image. For example:
      https://www.example.com/cat.jpg
    2. To specify an image from your workspace, select Content Management and specify the workspace and location of the image file you want to use.

      NoteTo appear correctly, images must be either public or specifically shared with the agent.

  4. To adjust the image size, expand the Layout property group and then set the Width and Height properties.
  5. To invoke an action when the agent clicks the image, click the Advanced property group. Under Click Action, click No action selected.

  6. Set any other properties of the component. 

    Common



    Image source specifies the URL where an image is hosted. The URL can be entered manually or assigned by a variable.

    For example:

    https://www.nps.gov/common/uploads/grid_builder/nri/crop16_9/E01C0169-1DD8-B71B-0BF5CE35362EF045.jpg

    Sets background color to one of the following:

    settings-bg-color-popup2
    • Default—Assigns the default color.

    • Color—allows you to select from a palette of common colors, or choose your own by entering RGB values or by moving the color picker to a new spectrum position. Click Choose to assign the current selection.

      settings-text-color-popup-colors

    • Variable—assigns a color stored in a string variable. For example, to assign dark blue:

      1. Click the Variables tab.

      2. Click + to add a variable.

        Figure shows button that adds a new variable.

      3. Select String as the type of value the new variable stores.

      4. Type a descriptive name in the Name box.

      5. Set Default Value to 0000FF or #0000FF—which is the hexadecimal code for dark blue.

        select-color-in-variable

      6. Click Apply.
      7. Assign the variable to this color property.

    To change the background color of a script page

    To set the background color of an entire page, assign a background color to its root vertical container.

    1. In the breadcrumbs bar, click the root container icon.

      select-root-container

    2. Under Common or Appearance, assign a different Background color.

      You can create interesting effects by assigning different background colors to other containers.

    Layout



    Configures width to a fixed size, to grow as needed to display content, or to consume as much space as possible relative to other components, using weighting to influence size adjustments.

    Setting Description
    settings-sizing-auto-size Auto-sizing configures the component to shrink or grow in accordance with its contents. For example, the width of a label can grow depending up on how much text it contains.
    settings-sizing-stretch

    Stretch allows a component to consume as much space as possible relative to other components, using weighting to influence size adjustments.

    If two components are both set to stretch, they are both allocated 50% of the remaining space by default. This proportion can be adjusted by changing the weight value.

    For example, if you set one component to a weight of 200, and the other to a weight of 100, then the first component occupies two thirds of the remaining space, while the other only takes one third. The first component appears twice the size of the other component, since its weight was two times the second component's weight.

    settings-sizing-pixels Sets a fixed size in pixels. You can type an integer value into the box, or use up or down arrows to increment or decrement size. These arrows are visible when the component has focus.



    Configures height to a fixed size, to grow as needed to display content, or to consume as much space as possible relative to other components, using weighting to influence size adjustments.

    Setting Description
    settings-sizing-auto-size Auto-sizing configures the component to shrink or grow in accordance with its contents.
    settings-sizing-pixels Sets a fixed size in pixels. You can type an integer value into the box, or use up or down arrows to increment or decrement size. These arrows are visible when the component has focus.
    settings-sizing-stretch

    Stretch allows a component to consume as much space as possible relative to other components, using weighting to influence size adjustments.

    If two components are both set to stretch, they are both allocated 50% of the remaining space by default. This proportion can be adjusted by changing the weight value.

    For example, if you set one component to a weight of 200, and the other to a weight of 100, then the first component occupies two thirds of the remaining space, while the other only takes one third. The first component appears twice the size of the other component, since its weight was two times the second component's weight.




    Aligns a component to the left, right, or center, relative to its parent container.

    Tip: A component cannot be vertically aligned to center if the Height setting of its parent container is Auto Sizing. To correct this, set the parent container's Height to Stretch or to a fixed height in Pixels.
    Setting Example
    align-left2 align-left-example2
    align-center2 align-center-example2
    align-right2 align-right-example2
    align-start align-start-example
    align-vertical-center align-vertical-center-example
    align-vertical-end align-vertical-end-example



    Margins set left, right, top, and bottom spacing around a border.

    Image shows relationship between margin, border, and padding settings.

    1. To optionally update all margin values at once, press the Set All button for Margin in the properties panel.

    2. Click the value field for a margin. A spin control appears in that field.

    3. Use the spin control to increase or decrease the margin. If Set All was selected, the change is applied to all margins.

      settings-margin-spinner

      The component is immediately repositioned using its new margin setting.




    Sets the visibility of a component based on the value of a Boolean (True or False) variable.

    1. Click the Layout property group. Below Visible, click Select Variable.
    2. Select a variable, or optionally create a new Yes/No variable and then assign that new variable to the Visible property.
    3. At runtime, the component is visible when the value of the variable is True. Conversely it is hidden when the variable's value is False.
