Add more flexbox properties to the OutSystemsUI(Justify-content)
OutSystems UI

I would like, don't know if more people would like too, to have more flexbox properties, right now is missing one big property that is justify-content by space, evenly or around. 

This way, we would stop manually create divs inside divs and putting columns just to align one div to the start and the other to the end...  Is almost wrong in my perspective, and would be easier if we had a justify-content: space between(or around or evenly) to help us align our structure.

1-examples of what we could have on SS aligning our div parents

We could have also a parameter saying what kind of alignment we want to that div

Let me know what you think. Thank you

Not sure if i understand your idea.

But you can always create a class with those properties and apply that class to the element that you want. That way you do not need to have divs inside divs like you mentioned.

Thank you

Yeah, I know, but instead of using a style sheet, you can use just OutSystemsUI and have your base theme that is always with the OutSystems dependency.

So why do we have align-items and flex-direction CSS classes on OutSystemsUI and we don't have this one that has the same or more importance than the ones that I mentioned.

Thank you, Rafael

And also, the users/developers will continue to do what I say I suppose, I have already seen some of that in some projects and I already had to do it because I could not put "custom CSS", I was only allowed of using just OutSystemsUI theme.

ok, I understand it now. Yes, i can see that it would be good nice to have. 

And since I never had a situation like the one you mentioned, that you could not use custom CSS in the project, then i never thought of it as an OutSystemUI need. 

But now, with that perspective i can see the need to have this CSS classes already on the OutSystemsUI theme.

Thank you Marcio

Thanks, Rafael, That is just my point of view, and I appreciate that you had your comment on this idea, really. 

Anything you want to add or ask more feel free :)

Hi Márcio Carvalho,

Thank you so much for your idea. I’m marking this as “on our radar” since we think this is a good idea.

We have added this idea to our backlog but at this moment we don't have an estimated date on when we will be able to address it. We will update this idea when that happens.

Hi Márcio,
We are currently working on new flexbox useful classes, including the justify-content-flex-start, justify-content-space-around and justify-content-space-evenly. 

These new classes will be released in our next release.
