MaestroThe UI design product. | Form Builder | 19.11 This feature was updated in 19.11.
The Maestro editor allows you to view details about a library where a component is published to and the component's properties. This is handy to understand the component inheritance and properties' source, especially when you create or use shared components.
To view details about component and its properties' source:
In this example, we have a local item called getting_started that is a Page component, which is inherited from the nav-page item that is the Page component published in the navigation library. This component in turn is inherited from the section item that is the Section component.
Click Embed components in local design to add a component to your design. This will keep all the properties, rules and styles from the component the same as if you had added and set these properties in the form. This can be used on components shared from a form or built in the Maestro editor. If the option is not present, then this is a native widget which cannot be embedded as they would not be able to function correctly. One use for this is to add a block to your form but need to re-arrange the order of the included fields or add new ones then embedding removes this restriction and you can move the fields around.
In this example, you can see that the Getting Started components has 9 properties, with 2 properties coming from the Page components, 6 properties are from the Section Level 1 component and the Label property is a local override.
Use View pane to see the child components in the hierarchy.
Next, learn about the Model pane.
