This section shows how to utilize, configure and what to pay attention to when using the predefined widgets. Further, it also shows how to override predefined styles to customize the widgets.

Modify Dashboard

You can modify the whole dashboard using HTML and CSS or work with the following predefined widgets.

Dashboard Search Box

The Search Box is an element that allows to search for Content Items based on a search keyword. By typing a search, and selecting the correct channel and search settings, a redirection to content items is being performed upon a search. The search box can be used by the tag cp-dashboard-search-box in the template.

Example of a search box

Code Example

<cp-dashboard-search-box
    class="override-classes"
    [defaultSelectedIds]="['products', 'keywords']"
>
</cp-dashboard-search-box>
HTML

Configurable Attributes

Attribute Name

Description

class

Classes that can be passed through to the internal HTML elements.

style

[defaultSelectedIds]

A string array of channel ids to provide a preselected channel in the channel picker.

If the current user has no access to any of the channels or the channels do not exist, the channel with the lowest sort order will be preselected.

If the user has access to the channels, the first channel in the string array will be used.

Override Styling

The Search Box for the dashboard is a wrapper around an internal implementation of a search box. The bare minimum implementation of the Search Box widget can be considered as follows:

<div class="cp-dashboard-search-box" [ngClass]="class" [style]="style">
    <INTERNAL_SEARCH_BOX_IMPLEMENTATION
      class="search-box"
      [ngClass]="class"
      [style]="style"
    >
    </INTERNAL_SEARCH_BOX_IMPLEMENTATION>
</div>
HTML

The class cp-dashboard-search-box or the class for the internal search box search-box can be extended/overridden by a class that gets passed through by the class attribute. See examples for overriding below.

.override-classes.cp-dashboard-search-box {
  // Override class cp-dashboard-search-box
}

.override-classes.cp-dashboard-search-box .search-box {
  // Override class search-box
}
CSS

Dashboard Banner

The Dashboard Banner is an element that contains a background image, title, teaser, and a search box. It is preconfigured to use a height of a minimum 150px and a maximum 33% of the viewport height. The banner can be used by the tag cp-dashboard-banner in the template.

HTML

Configurable Attributes

Attribute Name

Required

Description

class

Classes that can be passed through to the internal HTML elements.

style

Styles that can be passed through to the internal HTML elements.

openInNewTab

Defines if the provided URL should be opened in a new tab or in the same tab where the card is being clicked on.

channelId

In order to show or not show a card based on the permission of the user for the provided channel id. If a user has access to the provided channel id, the card will be shown otherwise it will not be shown.

imageWidth

Width for the image inside the card. Defaults to 350px if no value provided.

imageHeight

Height for the image inside the card. Defaults to 250px if no value provided.

title

Title for the card.

url

URL that the card should be linked to. If the URL starts with /, the URL is being treated as internal link. With an internal link, filter criterias can be used to link to predefined filters and search. If url is an internal link, openInNewTab will have no effect. In this case, the link will open in same browser tab.

imageUrl

URL of the image that should be displayed in the card.

Linking To Predefined Filters

By providing the filter criterias in the URL that gets passed to the dashboard card, linking to predefined filters can be achieved. The URL that is passed to the url attribute has to start with a / and has to contain the full filter string.

<cp-dashboard-card
    class="override-classes"
    channelId="products" 
    imageWidth="300" 
    imageHeight="200"
	title="Lorem Ipsum Short Title" 
	url='/contents/allContent?search=ocean&searchMode=and&sort=%5B%7B"field":"audit.modificationDate","direction":"Desc"%7D%5D&filters=%5B%7B"aggregationName":"contentType","filter":%7B"field":"contentType","term":"Video","kind":"TermFilter"%7D,"kind":"AggregationFilter"%7D,%7B"aggregationName":"audioMetadata.fileExtension","filter":%7B"field":"audioMetadata.fileExtension","term":".webm","kind":"TermFilter"%7D,"kind":"AggregationFilter"%7D%5D'
	imageUrl="https://picsum.photos/seed/third/500/500"
>
</cp-dashboard-card>
CODE

Note: The filter string does not need to be serialized and can be copied from the browser URL as is.

Override Styling

The bare minimum implementation of the Card widget can be considered as follows:

<div class="cp-dashboard-card" [ngClass]="class" [style]="style">
    <a class="link">
      <div class="image-container">
        <img class="image" />
        <div class="image-shadow"></div>
      </div>
      <p class="title">{{ title }}</p>
    </a>
</div>
HTML

The class cp-dashboard-card can be extended/overriden by a class that gets passed through by the class attribute. See examples for overriding below.

.override-classes.cp-dashboard-card{
  // Override class cp-dashboard-card
}

.override-classes.cp-dashboard-card .link {
  // Override class link
}

.override-classes.cp-dashboard-card .image {
  // Override class image
}

.override-classes.cp-dashboard-card .title {
