Fuel UX is the user interface toolkit used by the Marketing Cloud and ExactTarget's Marketing Cloud apps. Based on leading open-source JavaScript technologies including Bootstrap, jQuery and RequireJS, Fuel UX uses familiar technologies and techniques to make it easy to build apps that deeply integrate with the look and feel of the Marketing Cloud. Beyond simple user interface controls, Fuel UX also includes powerful components that make it possible to embed parts of the Marketing Cloud in third-party applications.

Fuel UX includes a suite of UI controls and components (data-bound composite controls) that make it easy to build rich client experiences above the Fuel platform.


  • Checkbox - Customized look and feel of checkbox elements
  • Combobox - Combines input and dropdown for for flexible data selection
  • Datagrid - Renders data in a table with paging, sorting, and searching
  • Datepicker - Combines input and dropdown for easy selection of dates
  • Pillbox - Manages selected items with color-coded text labels
  • Preloader - Fully css-driven loading animation for visual indication of wait times
  • Radio - Customizes look and feel of radio button elements
  • Scheduler - Composite form control to quickly schedule events
  • Search - Combines input and button for integrated search interaction
  • Select - Extends button dropdown with additional functionality for setting and retrieving the selected items
  • Spinner - Provides convenient numeric input with increment and decrement buttons
  • Tree - Provides a visual display of hierarchical node data
  • Wizard - Defines a multi-step process to be completed in a specific order
