A Card View represents data as cards. Cards represent data records in a data source. A card arranges data source fields vertically, in a single column.

The image below highlights the major card settings:

Member Description
CardView.FixedSize Gets or sets a card's width (or height). By default, a card's size (its width or height depending on the layout) is automatically calculated to display its content in an 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 FixedSize property.
CardView.MinFixedSize Specifies the minimum size to which cards can be resized by an end-user, or in code.
CardView.CardHeaderBinding Gets or sets the binding that specifies the content of card headers.
CardView.CardMargin Specifies the outer margin of a card.
CardView.CardHeaderTemplate Specifies the template that represents card headers.
CardView.CardTemplate Specifies the templates that represents cards.
CardView.CardStyle Specifies a card's style.

How to Bind Card Headers to Data

This example shows how to display product names within card headers. To do this, the CardView.CardHeaderBinding property is used.
