Arrange Layout Elements

All layout elements are arranged against a layout grid. For example, suppose that you have the following layout grid.

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function() {
    $("#responsiveBoxContainer").dxResponsiveBox({
        rows: [
            { ratio: 1 },  // Header
            { ratio: 2 },  // Content
            { ratio: 0.7 } // Footer
        ],
        cols: [
            { ratio: 0.5, screen: "md lg" }, // Left-side bar
            { ratio: 2 },                    // Content
            { ratio: 0.5, screen: "md lg" }  // Right-side bar
        ]
    });
});
Angular
HTML

<html style="height:100%">
    <body style="height:100%">
        <dx-responsive-box id="responsiveBox">
            <dxi-row [ratio]="1"></dxi-row>     <!-- Header -->
            <dxi-row [ratio]="2"></dxi-row>     <!-- Content -->
            <dxi-row [ratio]="0.7"></dxi-row>   <!-- Footer -->
            <dxi-col [ratio]="0.5" screen="md lg"></dxi-col>     <!-- Left-side bar -->
            <dxi-col [ratio]="2"></dxi-col>                      <!-- Content -->
            <dxi-col [ratio]="0.5" screen="md lg"></dxi-col>     <!-- Right-side bar -->
        </dx-responsive-box>
    </body>
</html>
import { DxResponsiveBoxModule } from 'devextreme-angular';
// ...
export class AppComponent {
    // ...
}
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        // ...
        DxResponsiveBoxModule
    ],
    // ...
})

Every layout element has the location option that allows you to relocate the element within the layout grid or hide it on screens of a specific size. For example, in the following code, the "Left-Side Bar" and "Right-Side Bar" elements are present only on medium and large screens. All the other elements have individual settings for screens of each size.

    <body style="height:100%">
        <div id="responsiveBoxContainer">
            <div class="header" data-options="dxItem: {
                location: [
                    { screen: 'md lg', row: 0, col: 0, colspan: 3 },
                    { screen: 'xs sm', row: 0, col: 0 }
                ]
            }"> <p>Header</p> </div>

            <div class="content" data-options="dxItem: {

                ]
            }"> <p>Content</p> </div>

            }"> <p>Right Bar</p> </div>

            <div class="footer" data-options="dxItem: {

If on some screens, all elements should be arranged in a single column, assign the size qualifiers of these screens to the singleColumnScreen option. In this case, the layout grid will be ignored in favor of the single-column layout, and all layout elements will have equal heights.

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function() {
    $("#responsiveBoxContainer").dxResponsiveBox({
        rows: [
            // Ignored
        ],
        cols: [
            // Ignored
        ],
        // Single-column layout on small and extra small screens
        singleColumnScreen: "xs sm"
    });
