Panel with absolute positioning

Creates a panel whose contents are absolutely positioned.

Usage
absolutePanel(..., top = NULL, left = NULL, right = NULL, bottom = NULL,
  width = NULL, height = NULL, draggable = FALSE, fixed = FALSE,
  cursor = c("auto", "move", "default", "inherit"))

fixedPanel(..., top = NULL, left = NULL, right = NULL, bottom = NULL, width = NULL, height = NULL, draggable = FALSE, cursor = c("move", "default", "inherit"))

Details

The absolutePanel function creates a

tag whose CSS position is set to absolute (or fixed if fixed = TRUE). The way absolute positioning works in HTML is that absolute coordinates are specified relative to its nearest parent element whose position is not set to static (which is the default), and if no such parent is found, then relative to the page borders. If you're not sure what that means, just keep in mind that you may get strange results if you use absolutePanel from inside of certain types of panels.

The fixedPanel function is the same as absolutePanel with fixed = TRUE.

The position (top, left, right, bottom) and size (width, height) parameters are all optional, but you should specify exactly two of top, bottom, and height and exactly two of left, right, and width for predictable results.

Like most other distance parameters in Shiny, the position and size parameters take a number (interpreted as pixels) or a valid CSS size string, such as "100px" (100 pixels) or "25%".

For arcane HTML reasons, to have the panel fill the page or parent you should specify 0 for top, left, right, and bottom rather than the more obvious width = "100%" and height = "100%".

Value

An HTML element or list of elements.
