From RAD Studio
Jump to: navigation, search

Go Up to VCL

TCardPanel allows you to display a collection of cards or pages (TPanel controls) that can be displayed one at a time. The control displays the active card and its content and you can write code to switch to any other card or use the integrated mechanism to let a user move among cards sequentially with a swipe gesture. A Card Panel hosts multiple subpanels displaying only one of them, similarly to a TabControl, but it has no specific UI indicating the various panels.

TCardPanel fully supports VCL styling for Windows 10 and previous versions of Windows.
