Cortex Panel (Tab) Properties Explained

A Cortex Workspace can contain multiple tabs or panels, each displaying content based on user needs and requirements. Each panel has a set of properties to choose from, and each panel can be configured with its own set of properties, as needed.

To access these properties, begin by enabling the Workspace Edit mode by clicking on the small arrow on the top left side of the screen.

Next, do a mouse right-click anywhere in an empty area of the Workspace, then click on Edit from the contextual menu.

The following Panel Properties menu appears.

Description of the settings.

1 – PANEL TITLE: Name of the panel. This name will also be the tab’s name.

2 – WIDTH: Total width (in pixels) of the visible and usable area of the Workspace.For the best viewing results, set this value as close as possible to the width resolution value, in pixels, of the display used to view the workspace. Remember that this display could be a smartphone or tablet computer.

3 – HEIGHT: Total height (in pixels) of the visible and usable area of the Workspace. For the best viewing results, set this value as close as possible to the height resolution value, in pixels, of the display used to view the workspace. Remember that this display could be a smartphone or tablet computer.

4 – SHOW IMAGE: To show, or not, the selected background image.

5 – BACKGROUND IMAGE: Name of the selected image to display in background.
