Formatting layouts for on-screen and on-device viewing is a challenging exercise, complicated by variations in text field lengths (e.g. long part numbers, comments, and descriptions). We try to offer customization choices in Aligni, but please note that some choices may not format perfectly for your screen. Some choices may also reduce performance.
Navigation and Access
Multiple style formats may be defined based on the types of presentation in Aligni. Aligni comes pre-configured with a default format for each of these styles.
|Style Name||Description and Usage|
|Simple Reference||Simple References are brief, one-liner references to parts. Typically, these are simply the manufacturer’s part number but you may want to include other information such as the revision.|
|Listing / 1-Column||One-column listings are used on pages when trying to minimize horizontal space.|
|Listing / 2-Column||Two-column listings are used on pages with dense part lists where an additional display column can help reduce vertical space.|
|Detail||Detail views are used when a specific part is highlighted for informational purposes. On these pages, it is often helpful to display some additional information about the part.|
|PDF / 2-column||PDFs generated with 2-column part information will use this style such as inventory pull tickets.|
|Vendor||Vendor-view pages such as RFQs and Purchase Orders will use this style.|
Each style is comprised of one or more content tags. Together, these content tags (as well as any other static content you may add) generate the presentation that is shown in your browser.
