Backend UI Elements

The backend user interface includes a number of HTML controls that you can use on your pages. These controls are not exposed as widgets of any kind but can simpify some of the custom UI needs your project may have.

Scoreboards

The scoreboard control is usually displayed above backend lists and displays some summary or the most important data. The control could contain any charts and indicators (see below). Example of a scoreboard control markup displayed above a list widget:

<div class="scoreboard">
    <div data-control="toolbar">
        <div class="scoreboard-item control-chart" data-control="chart-pie">
            <ul>
                <li data-color="#95b753">Published <span>84</span></li>
                <li data-color="#e5a91a">Drafts <span>12</span></li>
                <li data-color="#cc3300">Deleted <span>18</span></li>
            </ul>
        </div>

        <div class="scoreboard-item control-chart" data-control="chart-bar">
            <ul>
                <li data-color="#95b753">Published <span>84</span></li>
                <li data-color="#e5a91a">Drafts <span>12</span></li>
                <li data-color="#cc3300">Deleted <span>18</span></li>
            </ul>
        </div>

        <div class="scoreboard-item title-value">
            <h4>Weight</h4>
            <p>100</p>
            <p class="description">unit: kg</p>
        </div>
    </div>
</div>

<?= $this->listRender() ?>

Note that you should use the scoreboard-item class for your scoreboard elements.

Indicators

Indicators are simple reporting element that have a title, a value and a description. You can use the positive and negative classes on the value element. Font Autumn icon classes allow to add an icon before the value.

<div class="scoreboard-item title-value">
    <h4>Weight</h4>
    <p>100</p>
    <p class="description">unit: kg</p>
</div>

<div class="scoreboard-item title-value">
    <h4>Comments</h4>
    <p class="positive">44</p>
    <p class="description">previous month: 32</p>
</div>

<div class="scoreboard-item title-value">
    <h4>Length</h4>
    <p class="negative">31</p>
    <p class="description">previous: 42</p>
</div>

<div class="scoreboard-item title-value">
    <h4>Latest commenter</h4>
    <p class="wn-icon-star">John Smith</p>
    <p class="description">registered: yes</p>
</div>

<div class="scoreboard-item title-value" data-control="goal-meter" data-value="88">
    <h4>goal meter</h4>
    <p>88%</p>
    <p class="description">37 posts remain</p>
</div>

NOTE: The example is given in the context of a scoreboard area. If you use the indicators in a report widget partial, the class scoreboard-item shouldn't be used.

Pie chart

The pie chart outputs information as a circle diagram, with optional label in the center. Example markup:

<div
    class="control-chart centered wrap-legend"
    data-control="chart-pie"
    data-size="200"
    data-center-text="100">
    <ul>
        <li>Label 1 <span>100</span></li>
        <li>Label 2 <span>100</span></li>
        <li>Label 3 <span>100</span></li>
    </ul>
</div>

Bar chart

The next example shows a bar chart markup. The wrap-legend class is optional, it manages the legend layout. The data-height and data-full-width attributes are optional as well.

<div
    class="control-chart wrap-legend"
    data-control="chart-bar"
    data-height="100"
    data-full-width="1">
    <ul>
        <li>Label 1 <span>100</span></li>
        <li>Label 2 <span>100</span></li>
        <li>Label 3 <span>100</span></li>
    </ul>
</div>
