PositionType

API Reference: UI.FlexLayout.PositionType

PositionType allows you to position objects either relative or absolute. Default value is relative. If you want an item to be positioned to an exact point, you need to set it as absolute.

TypeScript code blocks include examples of how to implement, override and components within the theme. You can create page with the UI Editor to make your page compatible with theming and then you can implement themable components programmatically. Once the page is created with the UI Editor, it generates a class under scripts/generated/pages. You can then extend that class with the following TypeScript classes.
