Dashboard Layout

The dashboard uses layout items and layout containers to arrange dashboard items in a hierarchical structure. This structure is called a dashboard layout.
Layout item
Contains and displays an individual dashboard item.
Layout group
A container that is used to arrange layout items (or other layout groups) either horizontally or vertically. At the same time, layout groups are containers that display dashboard item groups. You cannot add a dashboard item group to another group.
Layout tab page
A container for layout items and groups. The tab page can include dashboard items and groups, but cannot include tab pages and tab containers. Nested tabs are not allowed.
Layout tab container
A container for layout tab pages.
Thus, a dashboard layout is hierarchically arranged from the root layout group to the bottommost layout items, which display individual dashboard items.
The dashboard in the picture below illustrates a tabbed layout containing items and groups.

Its layout hierarchy is shown in the following diagram:
