Adding a dynamic container to a portal
Define the main area of your portal by specifying where your application opens documents, such as cases or pages, and provide your users with a clear and intuitive workspace.
Dynamic containers display content in the main pane of the portal. You can define a default view for a container, but if the user opens a document, the application replaces the default view with the selected content, without reloading the portal. This architecture helps users access documents without page refreshes, which reduces context switching and improves the user experience.
Each portal supports only one dynamic container.
In the navigation pane of Dev Studio, click Records.
Expand the User Interface category, and then click Section.
Open the section to which you want to add a dynamic container.
If the editing options are not visible, click Convert to full section editor.
On the Design tab, expand the Structural list, and then drag the Dynamic container onto the design canvas.
In the Dynamic Container Settings window, select Single document.
In the Default view list, select Section.
In the Page context list, select Use current context.
In the Section field, select the section that you want to display in the dynamic container.
Select Render as single page.
