Media widget

With the Media widget, you can display data in an interesting and eye-catching way. 

There are three ways you can feed the data to the widget: datasource, folder, and loop. You can choose from these three in the Source Menu.

Datasource lets you bind the widget to a datasource, which can be either a systemwide datasource, your own datasource, or a predefined live datasource. See more about Data sources.

Hovewer be aware, that only the Live datasources are parsed automatically, therefore using your own datasource needs a bit of tweaking. See more about Data Binding

Folder lets you select a folder path from the File Manager, and use that folder as the basis of the Media widget. See more about File Manager.

Loop lets you select from your Loops. See more about Loop Editor.

Media widget has many customizable options regarding its appearance. It can be daunting to set it up. That is why we prepared preset options, to make the first set-up as smooth as possible. These presets showcase the wide variety of the widget’s flexibility.

After selecting a preset you can further customize your widget, with Feed and Slider/ Collage mode options.

Feed option has Display mode,  which determines the generic behavior of the widget, as well as Slider/ Collage mode options. There are three Display modes.

Slider is a basic slider, that arranges one card on the screen, then scrolls it according to the Slide type. This type is showcased by Default and Preset 1.

Continous slider enables you to arrange more than one slide on the screen, and have them continuously scroll through according to Slide type direction. This type is showcased by Preset 2.

Collage arranges many cards on-screen and animates them according to Collage mode options. This type is showcased by Preset 3.

In the Size & Position Menu, you can select the width, height, and placement of your widget quickly. See more about Size&Position.

Style lets you further customize the widget’s look, such as spacings, corner roundings, and borders.

Padding can also be set under the style. The basic set-up of padding changes the size of the padding all around (all four sides) equally.

If Dynamic font size is enabled then the widget automatically calculates the font size of each card according to the card size, and the text inside. This option overrides the size setting of fonts. See more about Using Fonts & Custom Fonts

If Custom padding is enabled, then you can customize the padding on all four sides separately.

If Partial Display is enabled, then you can customize which part of the widget is shown.
