Container Components

Container components provide a way of laying out and organizing components within a View. The different container types support different layout strategies. Containers are essential to creating responsive applications, and they allow your applications to gracefully display information across a wide variety of screen sizes and orientations.

After the initial View is created, all new Views will default to the last used container type selected in the Root Container Type field. For example, if the last View you created used the Flex Container, the next time you create a new View the Root Container Type will default to Flex Container instead of Coordinate Container.
