Section Header

Section header acts as a title bar for different sections in a page. The Section Header implements a reusable view that can be placed at the top of a table section. You use headers to display additional information for that section.


Section header is used along with the Tableview in Configure.IT. It comes into play when you want to group things under some header. Use this control, if you have custom content to display. You can design it the way you want and also add controls to it.
