The Box component is a basic building block of the MINTDATA™ application UI. For those who is familiar with HTML, the purpose of Box can remind the one of a container based on <div> tag.

Figure 1. Box styling examples


In most cases the Box is used for logical arrangement of its child items. Common usage patterns:

  • Use several boxes with enabled parent-layout, to make your app layout responsive.
  • Create a form for collecting user input (for example, 'login' or 'send message' form) - a box with children like Text, Text Input or Button;
  • Create a repeatable container for rendering a list of any multi-component items - product cards, chat messages, table records, etc.;
  • Use shadows, gradient background or rounded corners on a box to get nice-looking UI;
  • ...and more.


  • Box is repeatable;
  • Styling properties: Background, Border, Shadows, Padding, Rotation, Layout settings;
  • Interaction properties: Normal, Hover and Active behavior, Drag-n-Drop options;
