Groupbox widget that allows content in the header



Custom group box widget for web


In addition to default groupbox, place content in the header.


No specific installation. Just put your content in the header and body sections.

The default styling of the widget matches the header mode Div of the default groupbox widget. For using header (enlarged text) styles, make sure to style your header content similar to the default groupbox if you want to match the styling.


The widget can work with the same classes Mendix provides for the default group box widget. To make this easier you can adjust the settings.json file to add design properties for the widget. The test project in the GitHub repository has an example

Have a look at the Mendix documentation page on design properties for more information.
