Richer formatting of attributes using slots

Most component attributes allow a richer form of formatting using slots, denoted by an attribute[S] superscript in the respective components' tables. In other cases, when the option is of type "Slot", only the slot option is available.

You can define such a slot within the component by adding a slot="slot_name" attribute to any element within the slot.

Example

CODE:

<panel expanded>
  <p slot="header" class="card-title">
    <i><strong>
      <span style="color:#FF0000;">R</span>
      <span style="color:#FF7F00;">A</span>
      <span style="color:#FFFF00;">I</span>
      <span style="color:#00FF00;">N</span>
      <span style="color:#0000FF;">B</span>
      <span style="color:#4B0082;">O</span>
      <span style="color:#9400D3;">W</span>
    </strong></i>
  </p>
  As shown in this panel, using the header slot
  allows you to customize the Panel's header using HTML.

    Modal allows you to style both header and footer individually, with style classes and inline styles.
