Divider Widget

The Divider widget helps you improve page structure by adding a visual line that separates widgets into distinct groups to create a clear hierarchy. When you add a Divider widget to the page, the default style is a thin black line. You're certainly capable of adjusting the width, style, color, and other design settings of the widget.

Image Widget

The Image widget allows you to add static and dynamic images to a page. This version also offers you with hover effect and hover transition effect for images.

Button Widget

The Button widget provides links to open pages, windows, and section views in your app, scroll to a particular block or the top of the page, or go to a web address. You can choose from different styles, sizes, and colors to design buttons.
