    Using Components

    MarkBind provides a number of components (e.g., expandable panels, tabbed displays, navigation bars, etc.) that you can use to enhance the appearance/behavior of your pages.

    To use a component, just use the corresponding markup in your file. For example, to create a Panel, you just need to use the markup:

    <panel header="Click to expand" type="seamless">
      Panel Content.
    </panel>

    Markbind also supports a light color scheme for boxes

    CODE:

    <box light>
        default light
    </box>
    <box type="info" light>
        info light
    </box>
    <box type="warning" light>
        warning light
    </box>
    <box type="success" light>
        success light
    </box>
    <box type="important" light>
        important light
    </box>
    <box type="wrong" light>
        wrong light
    </box>
    <box type="tip" light>
        tip light
    </box>
    <box type="definition" light>
        definition light
    </box>
    <box type="definition" header="##### Header markdown :rocket:" light>
        definition light with header markdown
    </box>
    

    OUTPUT:

    default light info light warning light success light important light wrong light tip light definition light definition light with header markdown

    MarkBind also supports a seamless style of boxes

    As light and seamless are mutually exclusive styles, light takes priority over seamless.

    CODE:

    <box seamless>
        default seamless
    </box>
    <box type="info" seamless>
        info seamless
    </box>
    <box type="warning" seamless>
        warning seamless
    </box>
    <box type="success" seamless>
        success seamless
    </box>
    <box type="important" seamless>
        important seamless
    </box>
    <box type="wrong" seamless>
        wrong seamless
    </box>
    <box type="tip" seamless>
        tip seamless
    </box>
    <box type="definition" seamless dismissible>
        dismissible definition seamless
    </box>
    <box type="definition" header="##### Header markdown :rocket:" seamless>
        success seamless with header markdown
    </box>
    

    OUTPUT:

    default seamless info seamless warning seamless success seamless important seamless wrong seamless tip seamless dismissible definition seamless success seamless with header markdown

    You can further customize the Box's appearance.

    CODE:

    <box background-color="#ffca6a" border-color="grey" border-left-color="#8b5a01">
    default type, styled as an orange box with a brown left border
    </box>
    <box type="info" color="red" icon=":rocket:">
    
    info, with a custom markdown rocket icon and `red` colored text.
    
    You can use any inline markdown in the `icon` property.
    </box>
    

    OUTPUT:

    default type, styled as an orange box with a brown left border

    info, with a custom markdown rocket icon and red colored text.

    You can use any inline markdown in the icon property.

    You can remove the background, icon and borders of preset styles.

    CODE:

    <box no-icon no-background type="success">
        success box without a tick icon and backgound
    </box>
    
    <box no-border type="definition" light>
        definition type box, light style without border
    </box>
    

    OUTPUT:

    success box without a tick icon and backgound definition type box, light style without border

    Custom styles ( background-color, border-color, border-left-color, icon ) as introduced in the previous section, takes precedence over the no-background, no-border, no-icon attributes.

    You can also use icons, resize them and change their color accordingly.

    CODE:

    <box type="success" icon=":fas-camera:">
        Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit
    </box>
    <box type="warning" icon=":fas-camera:" icon-size="2x">
        Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.
    </box>
    <box type="definition" icon=":fas-camera:" icon-size="3x">
        Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.
    </box>
    <box type="info" icon=":fas-camera:" icon-color="red" icon-size="3x">
        Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.
    </box>
    

    OUTPUT:

    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

    Diagrams

    You can use the PlanUML syntax to add diagrams.

    Java and Graphviz must be installed to use this feature

    • Java 8 or later (required to run the PlantUML JAR executable)
    • Graphviz v2.38 or later (required to generate all diagrams)

    CODE:

    <puml width=300>
    @startuml
    alice -> bob ++ : hello
    bob -> bob ++ : self call
    bob -> bib ++  #005500 : hello
    bob -> george ** : create
    return done
    return rc
    bob -> george !! : delete
    return success
    @enduml
    </puml>
    

    OUTPUT:

    Alternatively, a PlantUML diagram can be specified in a separate .puml file and inserted into a page using a <puml> tag.

    CODE:

    diagrams/sequence.puml:

    @startuml
    alice -> bob ++ : hello
    bob -> bob ++ : self call
    bob -> bib ++  #005500 : hello
    bob -> george ** : create
    return done
    return rc
    bob -> george !! : delete
    return success
    @enduml
    

    in another file:

    <puml src="diagrams/sequence.puml" width=300 />
    

    OUTPUT:

    The full PlantUML syntax reference can be found at plantuml.com/guide

  • Modals

    Modals are to be used together with the Trigger component for activation.

    CODE:

    More about <trigger for="modal:loremipsum">trigger</trigger>.
    <modal header="**Modal header** :rocket:" id="modal:loremipsum">

    Triggers

    Trigger provides more flexibility in triggering contextual overlay via Tooltip, Popover or Modal.

    You could embed a Trigger within the text, and define the Tooltip, Popover or Modal at a separate location, which allows for a cleaner authoring flow.

    Specify the id attribute on the Tooltip, Popover or Modal component, and use the same id in the for attribute of the Trigger to allow the Trigger to invoke the specific overlay elements. Additionally, multiple Triggers could share the same overlay by providing them with the same id.

    Trigger's trigger attribute (which defaults to hover) is independent of the target's.

    Options

    Name Type Default Description
    trigger String hover How the overlay view is triggered.
    Supports: click, focus, hover.
    for String null The id for the overlay view to be shown.
    placement String auto How to position the Popover or Tooltip.
    Supports: auto, top, left, right, bottom.

    title
    (deprecated)
    String '' Header of the Modal component. Supports inline markdown text.
    footer
    modal-footer

    Slot empty Specifying this will override the ok-text attribute, and the OK button will not render.
    ok-text String '' Text for the OK button.
    effect String zoom Supports: zoom, fade.
    id String Used by Trigger to activate the Modal by id.large
    small Boolean false Creates a small Modal.
    large Boolean false Creates a large Modal.
    center Boolean false Vertically centers the modal (in addition to the horizontal centering by default).
    backdrop Boolean true Enables closing the Modal by clicking on the backdrop.
    Click <trigger trigger="click" for="modal:unused">here</trigger> to open a modal.
    <modal header="Modal header" id="modal:unused">

    </modal>
    

    Hover here to open a modal. Modal content


    Navbar allows visitors of your website to navigate through pages easily.

    Navbars support link highlighting; link highlighting can be customised by specifying rules.

    • Define default-highlight-on in <navbar> to specify fallback highlight rules.
    • Define data-highlight in <a> tags with the class nav-link or dropdown-item to specify individual highlight rules.

    Note: Navbars should be placed within a header file to ensure that they are correctly positioned at the top of the page, above the site navigation and page navigation menus.

    CODE:

    <navbar type="primary">
      <!-- Brand as slot -->
      <a slot="brand" href="/" title="Home" class="navbar-brand">MarkBind</a>
      <li><a href="/userGuide/usingComponents.html#navbars" class="nav-link">Highlighted Link</a></li>
      <!-- You can use dropdown component -->
      <dropdown header="Dropdown" class="nav-link">
        <li><a href="#navbar" class="dropdown-item">Option</a></li>
      </dropdown>
      <!-- For right positioning use slot -->
      <li slot="right">
        <a href="https://github.com/MarkBind/markbind" target="_blank" class="nav-link">Fork...</a>
      </li>
    </navbar>
    
    <navbar type="dark">
      <!-- Brand as slot -->
      <a slot="brand" href="/" title="Home" class="navbar-brand">MarkBind</a>
      <li><a href="/userGuide/usingComponents.html#navbars" class="nav-link">Highlighted Link</a></li>
      <!-- You can use dropdown component -->
      <dropdown header="Dropdown" class="nav-link">
        <li><a href="#navbar" class="dropdown-item">Option</a></li>
      </dropdown>
      <!-- For right positioning use slot -->
      <li slot="right">
        <a href="https://github.com/MarkBind/markbind" target="_blank" class="nav-link">Fork...</a>
      </li>
    </navbar>
    
    <navbar type="light">
      <!-- Brand as slot -->
      <a slot="brand" href="/" title="Home" class="navbar-brand">MarkBind</a>
      <li><a href="/userGuide/usingComponents.html#navbars" class="nav-link">Highlighted Link</a></li>

      </li>
    </navbar>
    

    OUTPUT:

    Options

    Name Type Default Description
    type String primary Supports: primary, dark, light, none.
    default-highlight-on String sibling-or-child Supports: sibling-or-child, sibling, child, exact, none. Specifies link highlight rules for navbars.

    If you wish to further customize your navbar beyond the primary, dark, and light theme colors, specify the type="none" attribute and insert your own custom styles or use built-in background styles via the add-class attribute.

    For instance, Bootstrap supports .bg-danger, bg-info, bg-primary, bg-success, bg-warning as background colors. In {your-site}/_markbind/headers/header.md, you can change <navbar type="dark/primary/light"> to <navbar type="none" add-class="bg-warning/danger/info/primary/success"> to apply Bootstrap background styles.

  • A Page Navigation Menu (pageNav for short) is a fixed menu on the right edge of your page contents. You can use a pageNav to show a list of the current page's headings.

    Steps to add a pageNav:

    1. Specify your pageNav within the <frontmatter> of a page with The value default will use headingIndexingLevel within site.json."default" or a HTML defines six levels of headings, numbered from
      1 to 6.
      heading level
      .
    2. (Optional) You may also specify a page navigation title within <frontmatter> that will be placed at the top of the page navigation menu.

    Example In the page that you want to have page navigation:

    <frontmatter>
      pageNav: 2
      pageNavTitle: "Chapters of This Page"
    </frontmatter>
    

    The example above will create a page navigation containing only heading levels of 1 and 2.

    A pageNav has a fixed width of 300 pixels for its contents. It is responsive by design and will be completely hidden when the screen size is smaller than 1300 pixels.

    <frontmatter>
      pageNav: 2
      pageNavTitle: "Chapters of This Page"
    </frontmatter>
    

    You can see an example of a Page Navigation Bar on the right side of this page.


    Panels

    Panel is a flexible container that supports collapsing and expanding its content. It is expandable by default.

    CODE:

    <panel header="This is your header for a Panel, click me to expand!">
      Lorem ipsum ...
    </panel>
    

    OUTPUT:

    Lorem ipsum ...

    With minimized attribute, panel is minimized into an inline block element. The alt attribute is for you to specify the minimized block header.

    CODE:

    <panel header="How to cultivate a tomato plant at home" alt="Tomatoes" minimized>
      Lorem ipsum ...
    </panel>
    

    OUTPUT:

    Lorem ipsum ...

    With expanded attribute, you can set the panels to be expanded when loaded in.

    CODE:

    <panel header="Have your readers click less to see the Panel's contents" expanded>
      Lorem ipsum ...
    </panel>
    

    OUTPUT:

    Lorem ipsum ...

    Panel provides many types that change its appearance.

    CODE:

    <panel header="**light type panel (DEFAULT)**" type="light" minimized>
      ...
    </panel>
    <panel header="**dark type panel**" type="dark" minimized>

    Show/Hide buttons using no-switch or no-close.

    CODE:

    <panel header="This panel does not have a switch button" no-switch>
      ...
    </panel>
    <panel header="This panel does not have a close button" no-close>
      ...
    </panel>
    <panel header="This panel does not have either buttons" no-close no-switch>
      ...
    </panel>
    

    OUTPUT:

    ... ... ...

    Use markdown in the header (only inline level markdown are supported).

    CODE:

    <panel header="**Bold text** :rocket: ![](https://markbind.org/images/logo-lightbackground.png =x20)" type="seamless">
      ...
    </panel>
    

    OUTPUT:

    ...

    If src attribute is provided, the panel will take content from the src specified and add it to the Panel body.

    CODE:

    <panel header="Content loaded in from 'src'" src="extra/loadContent.html#fragment" minimized></panel>
    

    OUTPUT:

    If popup-url attribute is provided, a popup button will be shown. If clicked, it opens the specified url in a new window.

    CODE:

    <panel header="Try clicking on my pop-up button" popup-url="/userGuide/syntax/extra/loadContent.html">
      This panel has a popup.
    </panel>
    

    OUTPUT:

    This panel has a popup.

    If preload attribute is provided, the panel body will load the HTML when the page renders instead of after being expanded.

    CODE:

    <panel header="Right click and inspect my HTML before expanding me!" src="extra/loadContent.html#fragment" preload>
      <p>You should be able to find this text before expanding the Panel.</p>
    </panel>
    

    OUTPUT:

    You should be able to find this text before expanding the Panel.

    You can nest Panels or other components within a Panel.

    CODE:

    <panel header="Parent Panel">
      <panel header="Level 1 Nested Panel">
        <panel header="Level 2 Nested Panel">
          <tip-box type="success">

    Triggers

    Trigger provides more flexibility in triggering contextual overlay via Tooltip, Popover or Modal.

    You could embed a Trigger within the text, and define the Tooltip, Popover or Modal at a separate location, which allows for a cleaner authoring flow.

    Specify the id attribute on the Tooltip, Popover or Modal component, and use the same id in the for attribute of the Trigger to allow the Trigger to invoke the specific overlay elements. Additionally, multiple Triggers could share the same overlay by providing them with the same id.

    Trigger's trigger attribute (which defaults to hover) is independent of the target's.

    Options

    Name Type Default Description
    trigger String hover How the overlay view is triggered.
    Supports: click, focus, hover.
    for String null The id for the overlay view to be shown.
    placement String auto How to position the Popover or Tooltip.
    Supports: auto, top, left, right, bottom.

    Questions and Quizzes

    Question and quiz components provide an easy way to test readers on the relevant content topic in the page.

    Introduction

    Question components (<question>) can be one of the following types: MCQ, Checkbox or Text.

    In all cases, content directly inserted in between <question>...</question> will be inserted into the question body.

    You can also insert markdown into the header or hint box, by using the header and hint attributes respectively. Click the hint button below to see how the hint box turns out!

    CODE:

    Header and Hint syntax
    <!-- Insert markdown into the header and hint using the respective attributes -->
    <question type="checkbox" header="Which of the following is correct?" hint="Think out of the box! :fas-box:">
    
      <!-- Anything you place directly under a question not in a slot is inserted into the question body! -->
      <small>Adapted from [Daily Mail](https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-4702868/Can-pass-intelligence-test.html)
      </small>
      </pic>
    
      <!-- Several hidden checkbox q-option components explained later -->
    </question>
    

    OUTPUT:

    Adapted from Daily Mail

    96 19 40 811

    If you require more expressive formatting for your header or hint markup, you can use the <div slot="header"> and <div slot="hint"> slots. Expand the panel below to see an example!

    CODE:

    Headers and Hints using slots
    <question type="checkbox" header="Which of the following is true?" hint="Think out of the box! :fas-box:">
      <!-- Header slot -->
      <div slot="header">
    
      Which of the following is correct?

    Think out of the box!

    Need another hint? Two of the answers are correct!Hover over me!

    Placing the question into the header is entirely optional. You may also wish to include the question directly in the question body, omitting the header entirely.

    Options and Slots common to all question types

    Name Type Default Description
    type String '' The type of question. Supports mcq, checkbox or text.
    header[S] String '' The markup to insert into the question header. The header is omitted if this is not provided.
    hint[S] String '' The content to display in the hint box.

    MCQ and Checkbox Questions

    MCQ and checkbox questions are indicated with the type="mcq" or type="checkbox" attribute.

    In both instances, you can include the possible answers using the <q-option> component, placed anywhere inside the if you wish, you could place it in the header mentioned above as well!question. To indicate the correct option(s), add the <q-option correct> attribute.

    Optionally, you can provide the reason for the particular option using the <q-option reason="..."> attribute, or the <div slot="reason"> slot for more expressive formatting, similar to the hint and header options and slots.

    MCQ Questions

    CODE:

    <question type="mcq" header="Which of these **contradicts** the heuristics recommended when creating test cases with multiple inputs?">
      <!-- Insert the reason for the option using the reason attribute -->
      <q-option reason="This is **correct**. We need to figure out if a positive test case works!">
        Each valid test input should appear at least once in a test case that doesn’t have any invalid inputs.
      </q-option>
      <q-option>
        It is ok to combine valid values for different inputs.
      </q-option>
      <q-option>
        No more than one invalid test input should be in a given test case.
      </q-option>
      <!-- Use the 'correct' attribute to indicate an option as correct. -->
      <q-option correct>
        All invalid test inputs must be tested together.
        <!-- Optionally, you may use a reason slot instead of a reason attribute. -->
        <div slot="reason">
        If you test all invalid test inputs together, you will not know if each one of the invalid inputs are handled
        correctly by the SUT.
        This is because most SUTs return an error message upon encountering the first invalid input.
        </div>
      </q-option>
      <div slot="hint">
      How do you figure out which inputs are wrong? (or correct)
      </div>
    </question>
    

    OUTPUT:

    Each valid test input should appear at least once in a test case that doesn’t have any invalid inputs. It is ok to combine valid values for different inputs. No more than one invalid test input should be in a given test case. All invalid test inputs must be tested together.
    If you test all invalid test inputs together, you will not know if each one of the invalid inputs are handled correctly by the SUT. This is because most SUTs return an error message upon encountering the first invalid input.
    How do you figure out which inputs are wrong? (or correct)

    MCQ questions can have multiple correct options!

    Checkbox Questions

    CODE:

    <question type="checkbox" hint="Use your calculator! :fas-calculator:">
    
      ##### Which of the following is true?
    
      <br>
      <q-option reason="lorem ipsum lorem ipsum lorem ipsum lorem ipsum lorem ipsum">
        1 + 1 = 11
      </q-option>
      <q-option reason="Division by zero is **undefined**!">
        1 / 0 = infinity
      </q-option>
      <q-option correct>
      11 / 11 = 1
      </q-option>
    </question>
    

    OUTPUT:

    Which of the following is true?

    1 + 1 = 11 1 / 0 = infinity 11 / 11 = 1

    q-option Options and Slots

    Name Type Default Description
    correct Boolean false Whether this option (placed under either a MCQ or checkbox question) is correct. You may have multiple correct answers in either case.
    reason[S] String '' The explanation markup to display for the option once the answer is checked.

    Text Questions

    Text questions are specified with the type="text" attribute.

    Unlike MCQ and checkbox questions, answer checking is performed by providing keywords to check for in the user's answer through the keywords attribute. If no keywords are provided, the answer will always be marked as correct when placed in quizzes.

    Keywords are validated by simply looking for the keyword as a pattern in the user's answer! This works well for some When does validation work?cases

    When the keywords specified are rather long (eg. `requirements`), it reduces the chance that this keyword can be mistakenly validated.

    In contrast, something short and common like `take` which can easily be part of another word (eg. `mis-take-nly`) would be mistakenly validated.
    and not others.

    You can provide your answer in the answer attribute, or similarly, the <div slot="answer"> slot for more expressive formatting.

    CODE:

    <question type="text" header="Which country did the Hawaiian pizza originate from?"
              keywords="hawaii" threshold="0.5" answer="It originated from Hawaii!">
      <div slot="hint">
    
      Watch some pizza commercials! :tv:
    
      :pizza: :pizza: :pizza: :pizza: :pizza: :pizza: :pizza: :pizza: :pizza: :pizza: :pizza: :pizza:
      </div>
    </question>
    

    OUTPUT:

    Watch some pizza commercials! πŸ“Ί

    πŸ• πŸ• πŸ• πŸ• πŸ• πŸ• πŸ• πŸ• πŸ• πŸ• πŸ• πŸ•

    Since the validation is imperfect, the minimum proportion of keywords that need to be matched can also be changed using the threshold attribute.

    If you don't want to validate the answer at all, you may also omit the keywords attribute entirely. Doing so also always marks the question as correct inside quizzes.

    Text Question specific Options and Slots

    Name Type Default Description
    keywords String '' Comma delimited string of keywords or phrases to match the user's answer against.
    threshold Number 0.5 Minimum proportion of keywords that have to be matched in the user's answer for the answer to be marked as correct.
    answer[S] String '' The answer or explanation to display when the user clicks the check button.
    • The old has-input attributes translate to type="text", but will be deprecated in a future version.
    • <question>s without a type (or an unrecognised one) will always be marked correct when placed in quizzes.

    Quizzes

    You can also build a series of questions out of multiple <question> components.

    Simply place the <question> components you want to include into the <quiz> component! No extra configuration is needed.

    Search Bars

    The searchbar component allows users to search all headings within any page on the site.

    CODE:

    <searchbar :data="searchData" placeholder="Search" :on-hit="searchCallback"></searchbar>
    <searchbar :data="searchData" placeholder="Search (Right-aligned dropdown)" :on-hit="searchCallback" menu-align-right></searchbar>
    

    To use the searchbar within a navbar, add the following markup to your file. The searchbar can be positioned using the slot attribute for the list. The following markup adds a searchbar to the right side of the navbar with appropriate styling.

    <li slot="right">
      <form class="navbar-form">
        <searchbar :data="searchData" placeholder="Search" :on-hit="searchCallback"></searchbar>
      </form>
    </li>
    

    OUTPUT:

    Enter a search term (eg. 'search bar') to see the search result dropdown.

    Options

    Name Type Default Description
    algolia Boolean false Whether the searchbar should be connected to Algolia DocSearch.
    data Array The local data source for suggestions. Expected to be a primitive array. To use MarkBind's search functionality, set this value to "searchData".
    menu-align-right Boolean false Whether the search bar's dropdown list will be right-aligned.
    on-hit Function A callback function when you click or hit return on an item. To use MarkBind's search functionality, set this value to "searchCallback".
    placeholder String '' The placeholder text shown when no keywords are entered in the search bar.

    Note: If you are using MarkBind's search functionality, then enableSearch must be set to true in site.json.

    See: User Guide: Site Configuration β†’ enableSearch.

    A Site Navigation Menu (siteNav for short) is a fixed menu on the left edge of a page, that can be used to show a road map of the main pages of your site.

    Steps to add a siteNav:

    1. Format your siteNav as an unordered Markdown list and save it inside the _markbind/navigation directory.
    2. Specify the file as the value of the siteNav attribute in the <frontmatter> of the page.

    Example Here is an example siteNav code saved in _markbind/navigation/mySiteNav.md file:

    * [:house: Home](/index.html)
    * ---
    * Docs
      * [User Guide](/ug.html)
      * [Dev Guide](/dg.html)
    * [Search](/search.html)
      * [Google Search](https://www.google.com/)
      * [YouTube Search](https://www.youtube.com/)
    * [Contact](/contact.html)
    

    Here's how another page can make use of the above siteNav:

    <frontmatter>
      siteNav: mySiteNav.md
    </frontmatter>
    ...
    

    And here's how the above siteNav would appear:

    MarkBind has styles nested lists with additional padding and smaller text sizes up to 4 nesting levels. Beyond that, you'd have to include your own styles!

    More than one siteNav file can be in _markbind/navigation/ directory but a page may not have more than one siteNav.

    A siteNav has a fixed width of 300 pixels for its contents. A siteNav is responsive in that it will collapse to a menu button when the screen width is smaller than 992 pixels. It will then be completely hidden when the screen size is smaller than 576 pixels.

    If you wish to use a Layout but exclude its navigation file, specify siteNav: none in the <frontmatter> of the page.

    Expanding menu items by default

    You can append the :expanded: to a a menu item with sub menu-itemsparent menu item to make it expand by default. In the example above, * Docs :expanded: will make the menu item Docs expand by default.

    A parent menu item that is also linked will not be collapsible e.g., the Search menu item in the above example.

    Additional content in site navs

    You may have additional HTML and Markdown content in a the file containing the code for a site navigation menu, e.g., mySiteNav.md in the example abovesiteNav file, in which case the code for the siteNav should be enclosed in a <navigation> tag. There should only be one <navigation> tag in the file.

    Example To include a heading for the site nav,

    # Site Map
    
    <navigation>
    * [:house: Home](/index.html)
    * ---
    * Docs
    ...
    </navigation>
    

    You can also include additional content between navigation items, such as horizontal dividers. Just be sure to include it as a list item as well!

    Example Inserting a horizontal divider:

    * [:house: Home](/index.html)
    * ---
    * Docs
    ...
    
    # Site Map
    <navigation>
    * [:house: Home](/index.html)
    * Docs :expanded:
      * [User Guide](/ug.html)
      * [Dev Guide](/dg.html)
    * [Search](/search.html)
    </navigation>
    
    <frontmatter>
      siteNav: mySiteNav.md
    </frontmatter>
    ...
    

    You can see an example of a Page Navigation Bar on the left side of this page.

    <tooltip id="tt:trigger_id" content="This tooltip triggered by a trigger"></tooltip>
    <br>
    This is the same <trigger for="tt:trigger_id">trigger</trigger> as last one.
    

    OUTPUT:

    More about trigger. This tooltip triggered by a trigger
    This is the same trigger as last one.

    Triggers

    Trigger provides more flexibility in triggering contextual overlay via Tooltip, Popover or Modal.

    You could embed a Trigger within the text, and define the Tooltip, Popover or Modal at a separate location, which allows for a cleaner authoring flow.

    Specify the id attribute on the Tooltip, Popover or Modal component, and use the same id in the for attribute of the Trigger to allow the Trigger to invoke the specific overlay elements. Additionally, multiple Triggers could share the same overlay by providing them with the same id.

    Trigger's trigger attribute (which defaults to hover) is independent of the target's.

    Options

    Name Type Default Description
    trigger String hover How the overlay view is triggered.
    Supports: click, focus, hover.
    for String null The id for the overlay view to be shown.
    placement String auto How to position the Popover or Tooltip.
    Supports: auto, top, left, right, bottom.

    Options

    Name Type Default Description

    Advanced Tips and Tricks

    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="attribute 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.

    Other examples of slots in use

    Example Custom modal header

    CODE:

    <trigger for="modal:tip-example" trigger="click">Click here to show Modal.</trigger>
    
    <modal id="modal:tip-example">
      <div slot="header" class="modal-title text-center">
        <span style="font-size:20pt"><span style="color:red;">BIG</span> header</span>
      </div>
        Modal allows you to style both header and footer individually, with style classes and inline styles.
      <div slot="footer" class="text-center">
        <span style="font-size:10pt">Tiny <span style="color:green;">footer</span></span>
      </div>
    </modal>
    

    OUTPUT:

    Click here to show Modal.

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

    Example Override the default icon for a certain type of box.

    <box type="info">
        <span slot="icon" class="text-danger"><md>:fas-home:</md></span>
        info
    </box>
    
    info

    Example Use pictures (or even gifs) as the icon for a box.

    <box type="info" seamless>
        <img slot="icon" src="https://icons8.com/vue-static/landings/animated-icons/icons/cloud/cloud.gif"></img>
        some very useful info
    </box>
    
    some very useful info

    Example Use thumbnail as the icon.

    <box type="info" light>
        <thumbnail circle slot="icon" text=":book:" background="#dff5ff" size="50"/>
        use thumbnail as the icon
    </box>
    
    πŸ“– use thumbnail as the icon

    Inserting custom classes into components

    Every component documented in our user guide allows you to insert your own defined CSS classes. This is done by adding the add-class attribute to a component along with the desired class names.

    Example
    Easily apply Bootstrap classes without using a wrapper!
    Markup
    <tip-box type="info" add-class="lead font-italic text-center">
      Easily apply Bootstrap classes without using a wrapper!
    </tip-box>
