Allows you to place custom HTML, Javascript and CSS onto your LiveTiles page.

How to Use

Once the code snippet tile has been placed onto the page, you will be able to open up the code snippet tile and start placing custom code into the snippet tile. In order for tile to be able to read in Javascript and CSS, you will need to be place in the <script> and <style> tags for Javascript and CSS respectively.

Sandbox Mode – When enabled this embeds the custom html code in an iframe.

Auto Height - Allows you to set the tile to have an auto height.

Custom CSS Classes: This section allows you to add multiple Custom CSS classes to the product, allowing you to be able to add custom CSS classes to the tile.

Developer Notes

As long as the tile is loaded with "Sandbox Mode" unchecked, it is possible to access the various libraries loaded on the page. This include jQuery via the $ variable. Through this means, it's possible for developer to implement solutions that use DOM manipulation, animation, and even AJAX calls. Obviously, LiveTiles is NOT responsible for any modifications made via Code Snippet tiles and encourage the following best practices:

  • Do NOT modify any DOM elements not contain within HTML in the code snippets tile itself with either CSS or JavaScript
  • If you choose to modify outside DOM elements, especially via custom CSS, keep in mind that LiveTiles may change the HTML structure of other elements in the future as part of the natural evolution of the product and this may break your customization
