Spotify Properties

The Spotify component has the following properties:

  • Component Id - Sets the name of the Spotify component in the app. The Component Id can be referenced using JavaScript to add more functionality to the app as needed.

    Pro Tip: It is a best practice to use only letters without spaces for the Component Id. Symbols, spaces, and numbers are not recommended.
  • Spotify URL - Enter Spotify's embed URL as it appears in the Embed Code.
    • Click the three dots under the title, then click Share. Choose Copy Embed URL Code, return to the Studio and paste the code.
  • Component Height (px) - Enter the desired Component Height in pixels. The minimum height property is 150 and the maximum is 3,000 pixels. To showcase longer playlists enter a larger number.

    Spotify Placement Settings

    The Placement Settings for the Component sets which column(s) the Component will appear. Each Page of the app can have a different number of columns that are set in the Layout section of the Page Settings. The following Placement settings are available for this Component:

    • Column Start - Sets the column where the Component will start. 
    • Column Span - Sets how many columns the Component will span. 
    • Pro Tip: The Spotify Component will appear best on mobile devices when it is set to span all columns of a page. Placing multiple Spotify Components next to one another can cause them to overlap on smaller screen sizes. 
    • Padding - Sets how much space will appear on the top, bottom, left, and right of the Component. When building a Page with multiple Components, the Padding will determine the overall spacing between Components.
    • Display Mode - Sets how the Component is displayed. If Both is selected, the Component will always show. Both is the default option. If Optimal is selected, the Component will only show if the browser supports the app. The main supported browsers are Chrome and Safari. If Degraded is selected, the Component will only show if the browser does not support the app. The main unsupported browser is Internet Explorer.
