Horizontal line -- I'm a NEWBIE! Need Newbie type help

Hello All.

I’m a complete Newbie to this web design stuff. Lot’s of years as an embedded engineer.
So I’m using the forge-issue-translation repo which is really cool.
I’m adding support for the comments to be added to our Jira.

And I’d like to have in the viewing area one of two things.

Either each comment broken up with a horizontal line
Each comment in a a little “box”.

Preferably the latter.

I thought I read the documentation and it said that ForgeUI uses MarkDown.
And if I use Markdown I thought it would be something like


<Text content={----} />

But neither one of those work.

I’m still trying to figure out the syntax so I’m sure I’m just doing something stupid.

So I am asking two things.

  1. How do I put Markdown code into my “Fragment” block.
  2. How can I draw a simple text box and put stuff inside of that box?

And if you can just point me to docs that would be great. I did a ton of searching so sorry if it was right under my nose. So really I did try to RTFM! I just couldn’t figure out which one.

Appreciate any help anyone can give me.


Hi @SteveIribarne, you’ll need to use the markup Text components documented here: https://developer.atlassian.com/platform/forge/ui-kit-components/text/. As for putting it in a box, you could use a Table: https://developer.atlassian.com/platform/forge/ui-kit-components/table/ to order these comments.
