Read the original Bootstrap documentation on spinners here.
The spinner block allows you to quickly add loading indicators to your page with options to easily change the style, size and colours.
The spinner block has the following options:
The style option lets you change the style of your spinner. THere are 2 options to choose from:
The size option lets you control the size of the spinner. You can choose from:
The colour option allows you to customise the colour of your spinner. You can customise the spinner using the built in theme colours. The options available are:
Along with global options for a block there are also device specific settings. These settings allow you to specify options that will be applied to their relevant device size. The device sizes available match up with the Bootstrap breakpoints:
Device specific settings are tabbed and to update a specific device you simply need to click on the relevant tab to reveal the options. Each device has the same options available. For the purpose of these docs we only explain one device tab (as all of the other tabs are the same for their related breakpoint).
Due to there being options for a number of different device sizes it could become confusing remembering which settings you have chosen. To help, when you make a change in a specific device tab the tab will be highlighted green. If all of the values in the tab are reverted back to the default then the highlight will disappear.
You can hide this block on any device. As default all blocks are displayed. If you wish to hide a block on a specific device you can check this option. This option will only apply to the related device. To hide on other devices, click on the relevant device tab and check the Hide on [device] option.
The height option allows you to specify a height for the chosen block. The height setting will be applied to the current device and all larger devices. If you wish to have different heights on different devices you will need to click on the relevant tab and set the option. The dimensions field should be a number, the units field has a number of options: px, %, vh and rem. The value that is applied to the block is the dimension with the unit appended to it eg:
The padding option allows you to specify what padding should be applied to the block. This will apply to the current breakpoint and all larger breakpoint so if you wish to have different padding on other devices you will need to set this option for each breakpoint. You can specify top, right, bottom and left. You should only insert a number into these fields.
The margin option allows you to specify what margin should be applied to the block. This will apply to the current breakpoint and all larger breakpoint so if you wish to have different margin on other devices you will need to set this option for each breakpoint. You can specify top, right, bottom and left. You should only insert a number into these fields.
Blocks tend to have a large number of settings along with different settings for each device size. You may get to the point where you have changed lots of settings and want to revert them back to the default. This can be time consuming and difficult to remember which settings have been changed to we have supplied three buttons that make this a piece of cake. Simply click the relevant button to reset your settings.
The HTML anchor option allows you to set an ID on the current block. This is useful when you wish to link to a specific area on a page.
The additional class(es) option lets you add any other classes to the block. This is really useful as it allows you to utilise all of the Bootstrap utility classes to quickly apply styles and add more advanced customisations. A few examples of this would be to align all inner content by adding the
text-end classes. You also have the ability to quickly search all of the available Bootstrap classes. To search Bootstrap classes open the Add Bootstrap class select box. You can filter the results by typing in the available search field. When you select an option it will automatically be added to your class list.
