Controlling the layout

One of the most difficult tasks of web programing is the control of the layout. In previous versions of APEX, tables were used to place the items on the desired positions. You can use an HTML editor to see a preview of the layout. As from APEX 4.0, new themes are introduced that use divs to position the different components. Divs are almost necessary to be able to use dynamic actions layout. The biggest advantage from div-based layout over table-based layout is that you can precisely position components of the web page.

In this recipe, we will create a page with a report region showing the application users and a chart region with the number of roles used. The two regions will be displayed next to each other.
