We are currently updating Altinn Studio Designer with more configuration options! The documentation is continuously updated, and there may be more settings available than what is described here, and some settings may be in beta version.

Add component

    You can add a component in Altinn Studio Designer by dragging it from the list of components to the page area. Selecting the component brings up its configuration panel.

    Basic component:

    App/ui/layouts/{page}.json
    {
      "$schema": "https://altinncdn.no/schemas/json/layout/layout.schema.v1.json",
      {
        "data": {
          "layout": [
            {
              // Basic component (required properties)
            }
          ]
        }
      }
    }
