Breakpoint Container


The Breakpoint Container is a simple container whose purpose is to swap subcontainers based on a ‘breakpoint’ in pixels. This allows for a very simple responsive design that removes one container and replaces it with another when the breakpoint (typically viewport width) is reached. With the Breakpoint container, you can define completely different content to render for each breakpoint. This is in contrast to a container such as the column container, where the content for each breakpoint is identical but the layout of it changes according to screen size. See aso Breakpoint Layouts


Most Properties have binding options. For more information on Bindings, see Types of Bindings in Perspective.
This section only documents the Props Category of properties. The other Categories are described on the Perspective Component Properties page.
