Container Inspector


Create a container for other components.


A container acts as a vessel for other components, allowing you to group them together and treat them as a single unit. Dividing your design into sections using containers allows you to quickly re-arrange the larger blocks of your design without re-positioning individual components. Additionally, a container can be configured to allow scrolling of its contents when needed.

Containers are particularly useful when working with states. Dynamically hiding and showing a container will also hide and show the components inside it. This makes containers helpful for creating pop-up windows and tabbed panels.

You add components to a container by dragging them inside its borders. In the Component Outline, the added components appear as children of the parent container.

Locking Position

Locking the position of a container allows you can “carve out” sections of your design, with each locked container acting like its own miniature canvas. For more information, see Locking Position.

Locking Contents

Locking the contents of a container allows you to treat the container as a single unit on the canvas, without fear of accidentally modifying the components inside. For more information, see Locking Contents.
