Cards Layout

Expanded Card Arrangement

A Card View can arrange cards in columns or rows. This is specified by the CardView.CardLayout property.

  • Columns Layout

    By default, a Card View arranges cards in columns. The first card is displayed at a View's top-left corner. Subsequent cards are positioned under the previous ones. If a card cannot be placed there without being truncated, it is placed at the top of the next column. Subsequent cards are positioned under this card, etc.

  • Rows Layout

    Cards can also be arranged in rows. In this instance, set the CardView.CardLayout property to CardLayout.Rows. In this case, the first card is displayed at a View's top left corner. Subsequent cards are positioned next to the previous ones. If a card cannot be entirely displayed, it is displayed on the next row, etc.

The maximum number of cards in a row (or column) is specified by the CardView.MaxCardCountInRow property.

Expanded Card Alignment

The alignment of cards is specified by the CardView.CardAlignment property. The table below shows all possible card alignments:

Rows Alignment

Center Far Near

Columns Alignment

Center Far Near

Expanded Card Size

By default, a card's size (its width or height depending on the layout) is automatically calculated to display its content in the optimal way. As a result, different cards can have different sizes. To avoid this, and specify the same size for all cards displayed within a view, use the CardView.FixedSize property. The minimum size to which a card can be resized is specified by the CardView.MinFixedSize property.

An end-user can resize cards by dragging a Card Separator if the CardView.FixedSize property is specified and the CardView.AllowCardResizing property is set to true.
