Icon Widget

The Icon widget allows you to add an icon to the section grid or as a "child" element to a "parent" widget container such as a Carousel or Grid widget. 

The Icon widget has three menus (see Fig 1 below).

General menu

The General menu for the Icon widget contains two features (see Fig 2 below).

  • The Change Icon feature, which when clicked, will bring up a modal (see Fig 3 below), that contains two folders. Each folder includes a "search" bar feature to assist in finding the preferred icon.

  • The "custom" folder is reserved for Pinpointe-added icons and icon libraries.
  • The "fontawesome" folder (see Fig 4 below) contains a large library of free-use icons provided by Fontawesome.

  • The Link Action  feature (see Fig 5 below). A more detailed description of the feature can be found by clicking this link: Link Action Article.

Style menu

The Style menu for the Icon widget basically conforms to the general Style menu as described in this article: Style Menu Article, but also contains two additional features as described below.

  • The Icon Size  feature (see Fig 6 below) is used to increase or decrease the size of the icon (but not its container). Note: The icon size is limited to the maximum size of its container. Enlarging the container may be required to allow an icon's size to be increased beyond the initial maximum.

  • The Icon Color feature (see Fig 7 below) allows you to change the color of the icon by use of a popup color picker.

Hover menu

The icon Hover menu is essentially a clone of the icon Style menu's stylistic features, and its purpose is to allow you to create a different style for the icon when a viewer moves their cursor over it in the browser.

The easiest way to illustrate the use of the Hover menu is with an example. Fig 8 below shows the browser-rendered version of an Icon widget that has been styled using the Style menu (See Fig 9 below). Figs 10 and 11 show the same browser-rendered icon widget using the Hover menu and hovering the cursor over the icon.
