Component Library Templates


Component Library Templates

You can create UI component templates that include customisable variables in HTML.

For further information on creating templates to your Component Library, see the Component Library topic.

You can then use these components in your feature outcomes. Each time you use a component, you can specify the values for each variable. This means that a single template can be used to create multiple outcomes.

To use a component library template in an outcome, complete the following steps:

  1. Navigate to the outcome in which you want to use a component library template, in either of the following ways:
    • Select the outcome in your feature for which you want to display the component library template, as described in the Edit an Outcome topic
    • Add a new outcome as described in the Add an Outcome topic
  2. Select the Add button under the Hosted UI Component heading

      You can select a colour in any combination of the following:
