A Word About the Vizuly Test Containers

Each Vizuly component comes with its own Test Container ( the XXX_Test.html files) that are used to demonstrate and test various styles and properties of each component. The testing containers have been designed to be easy to read and follow and are used as a starting point for many of our other tutorials. If you would like to make changes to these files, we recommend making a copy of them first so you can follow other tutorials with the original.
