Vizlib Tiles objects can be broken down into Components, each of them with a specific meaning.
We've put together a Glossary to help you understand what terms like layer and margin mean within the context of a tile visualization, and included an example tile format to point out where the components are located (Figure 1). Just cross-reference the numbers in the example with the glossary table.
Figure 1: Tile Components
|1||Background||The entire object background, can be a plain color, a gradient or an image.|
|2||Tile||The tile is repeated once per unique dimension value.|
|3||Layer||Any number of layers can be placed on a tile, choose from Text, Image, Line, Icon or Icon Bar.|
|4||Tile Border||The border around the tile can be activated for each side and color, width and corner radius.|
|5||Tile Margin||If shadows are used, each tile can have a margin (equal on all sides) placed round it.|
|6||Tile Shadow||Shadows are placed around each tile, with settings for color, blurring, offset, and spread.|
|7||Vertical Divider||A vertical divider is found between each tile, and can have different opacity, color and size.|
|8||Vertical Line||A vertical divider line is placed inside the divider and can be dashed, dotted or solid.|
|9||Horizontal Divider||A horizontal divider is found between each tile, and can have different opacity, color and size.|
