Description

Helper Style classes.


.oj-helper-clearfix
Clears floats before the close of the element.
Example
<div class="oj-helper-clearfix>...</div>
.oj-helper-overflow-wrap-anywhere
Sets overflow-wrap: anywhere. This class uses the !important rule.
Example
<div class="oj-helper-overflow-wrap-anywhere">long long text</div>
.oj-helper-inline-flex
This class was originally added when prefixing was needed for cross browser support, it is being deprecated because prefixing is no longer needed. It has always been documented that you must also set the standard syntax display: inline-flex with a class or style because once all jet supported browsers support the standard syntax this class will be removed.
Deprecated:
Since Description
7.0.1 Prefixing is no longer needed.
Example
<div class="oj-helper-inline-flex>...</div>
.oj-helper-hyphens-auto
Sets hypens: auto (Note that there are browser support limitations). This class uses the !important rule.
Example
<div class="oj-helper-hyphens-auto">long words like Antidisestablishmentarianism</div>
.oj-helper-hidden-accessible
Class to help hide text from sighted users but not from screen readers. In rare cases this class may cause layout changes, but it avoids using the following problematic techniques developers often employ:
  • display: none. In theory the screen reader shouldn't read display none content (though it sometimes will anyway).
  • move the content offscreen. As of 2014, VoiceOver in particular has issues with off-screen content. Also, when tested in 2014 some browsers include this in drag and drop content, which makes the content very large.
Example
<div class="oj-helper-hidden-accessible">...</div>
.oj-helper-flex
This class was originally added when prefixing was needed for cross browser support, it is being deprecated because prefixing is no longer needed. It has always been documented that you must also set the standard syntax display: flex with a class or style because once all jet supported browsers support the standard syntax this class will be removed.
Deprecated:
Since Description

Example
<div class="oj-helper-flex>...</div>
