Floating panels

You can create a panel or panel holder that overlaps a form. For example, you might want to superimpose a panel on a layout that contains other fields. These panels are called "floating panels."

Floating panels can be modeless, which means that the panel is part of the form, and users can interact with panel and the base form interchangeably. Floating panels can also be modal, which means that users cannot interact with the base form until they close the panel.

By default for supported browsers, system popups and floating panels and panel holders have a drop shadow, whether the panel has rounded corners or not. For more information, see Drop shadows in panels and panel holders.

You can create the following types of floating panels:

  • Modeless floating panel — Can be used as a "drawer" that can be closed and opened. It might also be used as a pull-down menu that contains custom data. This panel is positioned at X and Y coordinates on the form.
  • Dialog (modal) floating panel — Can be used as a wizard to request or configure data. It might also be used in a common framework to load external content within a dialog box (such as a content from data visualization field) without requiring an intermediary form. This panel is centered relative to the view.
  • Tooltip floating panel — Can be used to show additional details with options to navigate further. It might also replace a conventional tooltip when rich content (such as table fields) is needed. This panel is located relative to the event that triggered the workflow that opened the panel.

The following figures show examples of floating panels.
