In Summer 2019 we will be moving Capital Framework's code to the design-system repository. Until that migration occurs, please continue to use these docs.

cf-layout

A set of HTML and CSS layout helpers.

cf-core and cf-grid components are dependencies of this component.

NOTE: If you use cf-layout.less directly, be sure to run the file through Autoprefixer, or your compiled Capital Framework CSS will not work perfectly in older browsers.

Variables

Component variables are used to theme a component. They likely will be left as is, but if needed can be overwritten by duplicating the variable in a @key: value format with a different value. This customized variable would be placed in the same file where this component’s less file is imported.

Color variables

Color variables referenced in comments are from cf-core cf-brand-colors.less.

Standard content formats

Content line

A 1 pixel edge to edge bar that can divide content.

<div class="content_line"></div>

Main content and sidebar

Standard layout for the main content area and sidebar.

By default .content_main and .content_sidebar stack vertically. When using the modifiers described below to create columns, the columns will remain stacked for smaller screens and then convert to to columns at 801px.

Inline styling is for demonstration purposes only; do not include it in your markup.

Content hero
Main content area
<main class="content" role="main">
    <section class="content_hero" style="background: #E3E4E5">
        Content hero
    </section>
    <div class="content_wrapper">
        <section class="content_main">
            Main content area
        </section>
        <aside class="content_sidebar" style="background: #F1F2F2">
            Sidebar
        </aside>
    </div>
</main>

Left-hand navigation layout

Add a class of .content__L-R to main.content to determine the width ratio of .content_main and .content_sidebar, where ‘L’ is the left-hand item and ‘R’ is the right-hand item. The two common configurations are 1-3 (sidebar on the left, content on the right, in a ratio of 1:3) and 2-1 (content on the left, sidebar on the right, in a ratio of 2:1).

It is assumed that the content is wider than the sidebar.

Right-hand sidebar layout

Add a class of .content__L-R to main.content to determine the width ratio of .content_main and .content_sidebar, where ‘L’ is the left-hand item and ‘R’ is the right-hand item. The two common configurations are 1-3 (sidebar on the left, content on the right, in a ratio of 1:3) and 2-1 (content on the left, sidebar on the right, in a ratio of 2:1).

It is assumed that the content is wider than the sidebar.

Content layout column dividers

Adds dividers between specified .content-l_col-X-X classes.

Layout dividers work in conjunction with .content-l_col-X-X elements and have specific needs depending on which column element variant they are attached to. For example .content-l_col-1-2 has different divider needs than .content-l_col-1-3 because they may break to single columns at different breakpoints.

Dividers use absolute positioning relative to the .content-l element and depend on .content-l using position: relative;. This allows vertical dividers to span the height of the tallest column. Just be aware that if you have more than one row of columns, and each row has columns of different widths, the borders will cause unwanted overlapping since they will span the height of the entire .content-l element.

Sub blocks

Useful for when you need some consistent margin between .blocks that are nested within other .blocks.

Note that the divs with inline styles are for demonstration purposes only and should not be used in production.

Mixing content blocks with content layouts

You can safely combine .block with .content-l_col to achieve a column-based layout at larger screens with no top margin and a vertical layout at smaller screens that do have margins.

Note that the divs with inline styles are for demonstration purposes only and should not be used in production.

Content block that is also a content column. Notice how my top margins only exist on smaller screens when I need to stack vertically.

cf-grid helpers

.wrapper (base)

Turns an element into a cf-grid wrapper at 801px and above. Includes some explicit declarations for Internet Explorer 8 due to the fact that it doesn’t support media queries.

<div class="wrapper">
    Wrapper
</div>

Column divider modifiers

cf-grid columns use left and right border for fixed margin which means it’s not possible to set visual left and right borders directly on them. Instead we can use the :before pseudo element and position it absolutely. The added benefit of doing it this way is that the border spans the entire height of the next parent using position: relative;. This means that the border will always match the height of the tallest column in the row.

.my-column-1-2 {

    // Creates a column that spans 6 out of 12 columns.
    .grid_column(6, 12);

    // Add a top divider only at screen 599px and smaller.
    .respond-to-max(599px {
        .grid_column__top-divider();
    });

    // Add a left divider only at screen 600px and larger.
    .respond-to-min(600px, {
        .grid_column__left-divider();
    });

}

Featured content modules, like a hero, consist of headline and description, an optional call to action, and a static or video visual. They are intended to be used in a main content column next to a sidebar.

Text is full-width and displayed above the visual in the default/mobile view. When creating a static image for the visual, it should be 1076px × 606px (a 16:9 aspect ratio), which is 2x the rendered width at the maximum size at which the visual will be seen (on a 600px wide display).

At larger screen sizes, the image moves to the right of the text, occupying a fixed width of 270px (equal to 3 of 12 columns at max page width). By default, the left edge of the image is anchored to the left side of the visual’s 270px-wide area, and the right side is cropped off. The aspect ratio of the visual area increases as screen size increases, resulting in slightly different image cropping at different screen sizes, but the left edge of the image remains anchored in view. The full height of the image is always in view; the top and bottom are never cropped. See below for modifiers that change the image’s horizontal anchoring.

<section class="o-featured-content-module">
    <div class="o-featured-content-module_text">

Anchoring the visual on the right

To anchor a featured content module’s visual on the right (for example, when displaying a map with a copyright watermark on the right), add the o-featured-content-module__right modifier class to the o-featured-content-module organism. This anchors the right side of the image to the right of the available space so that the right side remains in view at all screen sizes.

<section class="o-featured-content-module
                o-featured-content-module__right">

             alt="">
    </div>
</section>

Centering the visual

When the featured content module visual is a video, or a static image composed with its subject in the middle, add the o-featured-content-module__center modifier class to the o-featured-content-module organism. This anchors the center of the image to the center of the available space so that the focal point of the visual remains in view at all screen sizes.

Heroes

A hero consists of a headline, a small amount of additional sub-heading text and an image. Its background color or image is flush with the sides of the screen, and the content is vertically centered.

The illustration can be customized by setting the background-image property on the .m-hero_image element.

On small screens (or where media queries are not supported), the text spans the full width of the .m-hero_wrapper and the illustration is displayed underneath.

For larger screen sizes, media queries are used to position the illustration to the right of the text.

At the grid’s maximum width and above, the hero should not exceed 285px in height. The image should be 195px in height to conform to this standard.
