Structure Matrix Widget

Basics

The Structure Matrix Widget is for displaying structures in a compact matrix-like representation. This allows a large number of structures to be displayed in a small amount of space. In addition data from an additional field can be displayed to help identify the structure (e.g. show the compound ID). It has this icon in the form builder Design mode toolbar: images/download/attachments/1805026/molecule-grid.png The Structure Matrix widget:
