Documentation · ViewHelper reference


Grid container ViewHelper.

Use <flux:grid.row> with nested <flux:grid.column> tags to define a tablular layout.

The grid is then rendered automatically in the preview section of the content element, or as page columns if used in page templates.

For frontend rendering, use flux:content.render.

Content elements

Use the name and area attributes.

Grid for a two-column container element

        <flux:grid.column name="left" />
        <flux:grid.column name="right" />

Container element frontend rendering

<flux:content.render area="left" />
<flux:content.render area="right" />


Use the colPos and column attributes.

        <flux:grid.column colPos="0" name="Main" colspan="3" style="width: 75%" />
        <flux:grid.column colPos="1" name="Secondary" colspan="1" style="width: 25%" />

Page rendering

<v:content.render column="0" />
<v:content.render column="1" />


  • Tag usage example

    <flux:grid name="'grid'" label="NULL" variables="{foo: 'bar'}">
    	<!-- tag content - may be ignored! -->
  • Inline usage example

    {flux:grid(name: ''grid'', label: 'NULL', variables: {foo: 'bar'})}

    [FEATURE] Storage of custom variables on FormComponents
    This allows a "variables" property to be used on every Form component and ViewHelper. Setting an array of variables here, makes those variables available anywhere the Form object is available.
    Can, for example, be used to store custom rendering instructions for the Preview section as described in #411
