Management tools

The theme includes multiple tools which can be used for your project web app allowing you to change a panel title, position, view, etc. You can edit, sort, filter, remove panels - and all these changes are saved via local storage after refreshing.


Please check management-tools-panels.html file to see the examples of panel types. By default, .panel is used to create different types of content blocks with border and padding for user interface:

The theme allows you to create catchy forms very quickly using various classes and attributes depending on the look and functionality you need.


Forms allow you to gather the needed information about website visitors. These are basic rules you should follow to create a user form:

  • Text input is wrapped in label with utility class .field. Text-based input fields includes support for all HTML5 types: "text", "password", "datetime", "datetime-local", "date", "month", "time", "week", "number", "email", "url", "search", "tel", and "color".
  • Disabled input field: you can add attribute "disabled" to have inactive fields and the corresponding style:
  • Use Bootstrap predefined grid classes to align labels and groups of form controls in a horizontal layout by adding .form-horizontal to the form. Doing so changes .form-groups to behave as grid rows, so no need for .row.
  • Fields with icons are created using .prepend-icon for left icon alignment and .append-icon - for right icon alignment:
  • Select menus are created using select, each item is wrapped in option, .arrow class allows to add the arrow to expand options :

Input tooltips

In order to add some explanation tips on what information should be entered in the field, input tooltips are used.

They are added as additional .tooltip inside the label:

The positioning of the tooltip box is set using a utility class added to .tooltip: .tip-left-top/.tip-left/.tip-right/.tip-right-top/.tip-right-bottom/.tip-left-bottom .

Validation states

There are validation styles for such basic states as error, warning, and success on form controls. To use, add .has-warning, .has-error, or .has-success to the parent element. In addition, you can have .has-primary, .has-info, .has-system, .has-alert states styled correspondinly. Any .control-label, .form-control, and .help-block within that element will receive the validation styles.

Input Addons

There are many other additional classes which allow you to style your input and submit fields:

  • In order to have a field with a button, wrap your "label" inside .smart-widget. The positioning of the button is set with the left of .sm-right/.sm-right:

    Bootstrap includes responsive grid system, which scales up to 12 columns. Grid system allows you to create a nice page layout using a series of rows and columns. Page user-interface-grid.html illustrates how to create columns and what class names are used for them:

    • Rows should be placed inside a .container (fixed-width) or .container-fluid (full-width) for proper alignment and padding.
    • Use rows to create horizontal groups of columns.
    • Content should be placed within columns, and only columns may be immediate children of rows.
    • Predefined grid classes like .row and .col-xs-4 are available for quickly making grid layouts.
    • Columns create gutters (gaps between column content) via padding.
    • Grid columns are created by specifying the number of twelve available columns you wish to span. For example, three equal columns would use three .col-xs-4.
    • If more than 12 columns are placed within a single row, each group of extra columns will, as one unit, wrap onto a new line.
    • Grid classes apply to devices with screen widths greater than or equal to the breakpoint sizes, and override grid classes targeted at smaller devices. Therefore, e.g. applying any .col-md-* class to an element will not only affect its styling on medium devices but also on large devices if a .col-lg-* class is not present.
