Example Use Cases for ShortPoint Code Design Element: Part 2

You have already learned how to use jQuery, add chat and weather widgets, third party resource single videos to your page with ShortPoint Code Design Element from our Example Use Cases for ShortPoint Code Design Element: Part 1 solution.


In this article we will show you more useful examples. Using Code Design Element you can also add:

  • Google Tag Manager:

  • web page animation:

  • stock ticker widgets:

Note: Very soon ShortPoint will have a brand-new Stock Design Element. Stay tuned :)

  • video playlists:

To embed the element from the other sites, you need to get and copy the code (step 1) and paste it to your Code Design Element (step 2). Please see the details below.


Before we begin

Step 1: Copy the embed code

1.1. Adding Google Tag Manager

You can embed Google Tag Manager tool (GTM) to your SharePoint page to analyze traffic on your SharePoint pages, for example using it to track video plays. 

Copy the following code, replacing GTM-XXXXXXX with your container ID:

<!-- Google Tag Manager -->
new Date().getTime(),event:'gtm.js'});var f=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0],
<!-- End Google Tag Manager -->

<!-- Google Tag Manager (noscript) -->
<noscript><iframe src=""
height="0" width="0" style="display:none;visibility:hidden"></iframe></noscript>
<!-- End Google Tag Manager (noscript) -->

You can find your GTM container ID opening the Workspace tab:

Please note, that it may take up to 24 hours for the data to come through, so the Google Tag Manager starts working on your page. 

Note: Find out more about adding Google Tag Manager to your website, following this link: Google Tag Manager > Developer Guide.

1.2. Adding web page animation

You can add web page animation to your page. 

Below are some examples of fade-in animation on page load, copy one of them or add your own animation code.

  • Background color changes from black to white, with 4 seconds duration:
body {
background-color: white;
animation-name: example;
animation-duration: 4s;
@keyframes example {
from {background-color: black;}
to {background-color: white;}

  • Page will go from transparent to full opacity, with 5 seconds duration:
body {
animation: fadeIn ease 5s;
-webkit-animation: fadeIn ease 5s;
-moz-animation: fadeIn ease 5s;
-o-animation: fadeIn ease 5s;
-ms-animation: fadeIn ease 5s;
@keyframes fadeIn {
0% {opacity:0;}
100% {opacity:1;}
@-moz-keyframes fadeIn {
0% {opacity:0;}
100% {opacity:1;}
@-webkit-keyframes fadeIn {
0% {opacity:0;}
100% {opacity:1;}
@-o-keyframes fadeIn {
0% {opacity:0;}
100% {opacity:1;}
@-ms-keyframes fadeIn {
0% {opacity:0;}
100% {opacity:1;}

1.3. Adding stock ticker widgets

You can add stock or other ticker widgets to your page, using the widget snippets from TradingView website.

From this website you can copy embed codes of:

  • Advanced Real-Time Chart Widget
  • Technical Analysis Widget
  • Market Overview Widget
  • Market Data Widget
  • Stock Market Widget
  • etc.

Choose the widget you would like to embed on your SharePoint page and click Copy button to get the code snippet:

Adjust the settings and click Apply:

Then copy code from the Embed code section:

Here is an example of code for Symbol Info Widget:

<!-- TradingView Widget BEGIN -->
<div class="tradingview-widget-container">
<div class="tradingview-widget-container__widget"></div>
<div class="tradingview-widget-copyright"><a href="" rel="noopener" target="_blank"><span class="blue-text"> AAPL Información del símbolo</span></a> por TradingView</div>
<script type="text/javascript" src="" async>
"symbol": "NASDAQ:AAPL",
"width": "1000",
"locale": "es",
"colorTheme": "dark",
"isTransparent": false
<!-- TradingView Widget END -->
