Numeric Sequencing ❺
Assign a numeric sequence to arbitrary elements in a group.
Allows you to apply a numeric sequence across a series of elements.
Numbering is always in a traditional 1, 2, 3… style of sequencing.
NOTE: This is primarily useful for sorting and filtering demos, because CSS has a numeric sequencing feature built in for live display.
Place on any element. Give an arbitrary named group, for matching the items after, e.g.
Place on any child element within that group. Give it the same group name as its parent.
The HTML DOM is a large tree of element and sub-elements.
- You can use
wfu-seq-groupmultiple times throughout your document.
- You can use the same group name on multiple
wfu-seq-group’s, provided that those subtrees are independent. Do not use the same name if one group is nested within the other.
- You can have nested
wfu-seq-group’s, as long as you use a different group name.
The purpose of these capabilities is to allow you to use numbering on a Webflow collection list that contains a nested list. You can give one numbering sequence to the parent list, and a numbering sequence to each of the child lists as well.
NOTE: Primarily I’d recommend this for demos, where you need to number items and then permute them. In most numbering situations, CSS numbering is generally a better alternative for general sequencing.
Depending on client needs and user requests, we may expand this to allow for control of;
- Starting number
- Step size
- Increasing or decreasing count
- Support for decimal values
