Flexible Column Layout…Smart Template (FIORI 2.0)…SAP WEB IDE

Project is based

The flexible column layout is a layout control that displays multiple floorplans on a single page. This allows a faster and more fluid navigation between multiple floorplans compared to the usual page-by-page navigation. The flexible column layout offers different layouts with up to three columns (panels). Depending on which panel the user is focused on, it can get prioritized (wider). The user can also switch between different layouts and view the last panel in full screen.
