Views and Dialogs

Views and dialogs are new component types used for creating applications for mobile devices. In addition to adapting to different screen sizes (by resizing, hiding, shrinking, enlarging, or moving content to make it look good on any screen) they make it easy to structure the functionality in your mobile application.


Views are used to present application functionality in quickly navigable groups. The user switches between views using the buttons in the application drawer.

Application dialogs are modal windows typically used as editors or detailers.

Views and dialogs are used together with view containers and application title bars.
