Regions


  • Moderator

    In case one wants to know where the various regions are. Missing are the fullscreen_below and fullscreen_above as those cover the whole screen, one under everything else and the other above.

    top_bar and bottom_bar are light gray
    top_left and bottom_left are red
    top_center and bottom_center are blue
    top_right and bottom_right are green
    upper_third is yellow
    middle_center is cyan
    lower_third is magenta

    All these regions will resize as needed.

  • Is it possible to set the bottom bar to a fixed size (so no resizing)?
    Depending on the amount of lines in the bottom bar news feed, my modules in bottom left and bottom right jump one line higher or lower.

    @Peter It’s all doable with css.

    .region.bottom {
    height: 200px;
    }
    
    

    This you add in your custom.css file (outside of body{})



  • @broberg , unfortunately it did not work: now the bottom bar and bottom left en bottom right overlap.
    I changed the value and tried .regio bottom_bar.
    Any more ideas?

  • @Peter said in Regions:

    .regio bottom_bar.

    Can you copy and paste your exact code? It’s important that you address it with “.region.bottom” (no space, and note the dots)

    I posted about addressing elements in CSS before, see here.



  • @doubleT sorry for the misunderstanding.
    First I copied and pasted your code; it gave an overlap (bottom bar and bottom left and bottom right).
    Then I tried more things like changing it in . bottom_bar (did not help to solve the problem.).
    And I tried some other values in your code.
    Restarted the RPI every time in between the changes.
    But still the same problem.

  • @Peter said in Regions:

    . bottom_bar

    That’s what I ment with exact code. Because this will do nothing, it should be

    .bottom.bar
    

    Because the element you want to address has both classes, there’s no space in between.
    But I see where it went wrong: “bottom_bar” is how you assign a module to a region in the config.js. But that’s not how you address it in css.

    Can you show us your problem with either a screenshot or a photo? If I understand right, you have

    • Newsfeed in bottom_bar (css: .region.bottom.bar .container .module)
    • a module in bottom_left (css: .region.bottom.bar .region.bottom.left)
    • something in bottom_right (css: .region.bottom.bar .region.bottom.right)
      Important: “.region.bottom.bar .container” will address ALL of them because of the structure.

    Usually, the bottom_bar should claim its place as needed and push the other two up as necessary. So that would be normal (and is what you described).

    I’d try

    .region.bottom.bar .container .module.newsfeed {
        height: ???px; /* height of the module with maximum lines possible */
    }
    


  • @doubleT , you made my day!
    It works perfectly.
    Indeed I have a newsfeed (several from different sources) in the bottom_bar, Moviemodule in bottom_left and random (travel) pictures in bottom_right region.
    With your help the modules stay on the same line!
    Thanks!
    Peter



  • You’re welcome.
    Btw. depending on how you control your Pi and Mirror, you don’t need to restart your whole Pi. In this case, just refreshing the browser should work, or restarting the Mirror process, if it doesn’t.
