  • id: the object's ID, used by UISets. Required
  • position: the object's position. Use the pixels or rows and columns coordinates format
  • text: the text. Can contain HTML tags
  • css: optional, and defines the CSS style
  • template: optional, html template to be used for each item


(text[!<id>] <pos>; <text>; <css>; <template>)


(text!mytext r1c1; text; color:blue)


The template is HTML code that is applied to the text to display the final result. The text is split into parts using the pipe character. These parts are replaced inside the template's code to form the final source.

%<n> (with n starting from 1) is used to include each part of the text inside the HTML. To avoid the % symbol to be replaced, use &#37; instead.

E.g. If the template is:


and the text is:


the resulting text will have the following html code:
