The Break widget

Available since version: 0.8.0 (2012)
Author: Christian Mayer


A break tag is used to start in new line for a grouped and thereby tidy display of elements on one page.



For a general understanding of how the configuration files are structured and what elements and attributes are it is recommended to read this section first: visu-config-details.

The behaviour and appearance of the Break widget can be influenced by using certain attributes and elements. The following tables show the allowed attributes and elements and their possible values. The screenshots show, how both can be edited in the editor.

Attributes underlined by ..... are mandatory, all the others are optional and be omitted.
