The Flex control is of container type. Its objective is to offer new ways to arrange controls in the user interface, even if the sizes of the controls contained are unknown. For this reason, it provides more efficient ways to achieve receptive user interfaces than the Table and Responsive Table controls.

To add a Flex control to the selected location, drag the Flex control Capture_201882116569_1_PNG from the toolbox:
