  This iBloc gives you the ability to include raw HTML on a page in your simulation.

Key Features

An HTML Snippet widget adds the following capabilities to an iRise simulation:

  • Type or paste HTML code directly into the iBloc properties so it will be rendered on your page.

Special Properties



Expects / Produces


Tags a widget with a name that is referenced in Studio. It is never displayed in the browser.



Determines whether the widget is hidden in the browser by default (same as Hide in Browser for standard widgets).

Boolean value (true or false).

HTML Snippet

Expanding the HTML Snippet field reveals a text box in which you can type or paste HTML code.

Properly formatted HTML code.


Enabling this feature will override the values of the Width and Height fields and use the contents of the HTML Snippet field to determine the dimensions of the iBloc when displayed on the page.

Boolean (enabled or disabled)

Note: To associate a data field with one of the properties listed above, click the small square to the right of the property field. The Set Property dialog will allow you to select a data field currently flowing into the iBloc.

Known Limitations
  • The appearance of the HTML Snippet widget does not change in Studio. To see the effects of any changes you make to the widget's properties in Studio, launch the page in iRise Reader.
  • Currently, iBlocs will not function properly in data rows or Tile Lists; therefore, only one data value can be sent to and displayed by the widget.
  • Some common HTML tags might not render as expected in the browser.
