Page containers is like a scaffolding for the page layout! Containers allow flow builders to set out the relative position of page components on the page.
If we are comparing notes with HTML5, a page container is very much like a div tag; it does not have any value or input, and is simply used to determine the layout of the page.
Here is how we can add a new container to the page layout:
- Click anywhere on the Main Container. This opens the settings menu for the container.
- Click the + icon.
This opens a configuration panel on the right.
- Enter a name and optionally a label for the new container in the Name and Label fields.
- Click Save Container.
This adds the new container inside the Main Container in the page.
If we like, we can nest containers in the page.
We added a new container inside the new container here.
All page layouts must have at least one page container.
