ResponsiveGrid:How to controll default grid size ?


Level 3

Hello Community!

I have another question relative with AEM in responsive design.

I use to use bootstrap to make responsive site so I try to understand how I can use in AEM grid system while making component.

I made some wrapper components that can gives you options of 6 by 6, 4 by 3 and 3 by 4 for example.


I realized that the responsivegrid gives a page, aemGrid -default-12 classes like following.
It works like I want to do but I think I can clean up a little bit.


Here are my questions,

1) Is there any way I can tell this line (<sly data-sly-resource="${'LGrid' @resourceType='wcm/foundation/components/responsivegrid'}"></sly>), how many column it needs for default ?

2) Is it possible to define column like "col-12 col-sm-6" in AEM grid, so it can expand 12 col when the screen size is smaller.

3) What is the differentce between aem-Grid--xx and aem-Gri--default-xx

So that ideally, I can redundant the nested code.

following sudo code is my ideal way to show the content if possible.

<div class="row">

     <div class="aem-Grid aem-Grid--6 aem-Grid--default--12"></div>

     <div class="aem-Grid aem-Grid--6 aem-Grid--default--12"></div>


Let me know  if you know answer to it !

Thanks !

I think this is the exact problem we wer trying to solve out smacdonald2008​. My approach to such a problem would be

     - create a component which will control the column. In which the author should have the ability to select the column he want.

- It is perfectly possible. Sample coming your way soon. You can modify according to your needs
