Creates the framework for a FireMonkey application in a Metropolis UI style and includes styled controls that are compatible with Metropolis UI.

The FireMonkey Metropolis UI Application wizard presents the following template or layout choices:

  • Blank Metropolis UI Application
  • Grid Metropolis UI Application
  • Split pane Metropolis UI Application

After you select a Metropolis UI layout and press Return in the wizard, the Form Designer displays the base FireMonkey form (FMX.Forms.TForm) displayed as a predesigned template. For example, captions in a FireMonkey Metro form use the Segoe UI font, which is the default font used by all Windows 8 applications. For a FireMonkey Metropolis UI application, the form file has the extension .fmx.

You can set the target platform for a FireMonkey Metropolis UI application to be either of the following:

  • 32-bit Windows
  • 64-bit Windows
Note: You cannot set OS X as the target platform for a Metropolis UI application.
