The user-interface-tabs.html is responsible for the navigation tabs.

Icons

Page user-interface-icons.html contains the list of icons used in the theme.

Grid

Bootstrap includes responsive grid system, which scales up to 12 columns. Grid system allows you to create a nice page layout using a series of rows and columns. Page user-interface-grid.html illustrates how to create columns and what class names are used for them:

The user-interface-grid.html is responsible for the grid page displaying.

  • Rows should be placed inside a .container (fixed-width) or .container-fluid (full-width) for proper alignment and padding.
  • Use rows to create horizontal groups of columns.
  • Content should be placed within columns, and only columns may be immediate children of rows.
  • Predefined grid classes like .row and .col-xs-4 are available for quickly making grid layouts.
  • Columns create gutters (gaps between column content) via padding.
  • Grid columns are created by specifying the number of twelve available columns you wish to span. For example, three equal columns would use three .col-xs-4.
  • If more than 12 columns are placed within a single row, each group of extra columns will, as one unit, wrap onto a new line.
  • Grid classes apply to devices with screen widths greater than or equal to the breakpoint sizes, and override grid classes targeted at smaller devices. Therefore, e.g. applying any .col-md-* class to an element will not only affect its styling on medium devices but also on large devices if a .col-lg-* class is not present.
