A list can be used to display content related to a single subject.


Lists are used to present information in well-formed and organized way. The user can view or take action on list line items. A list displays related content in a vertical format. A list is typically the focus of the screen and composes the main body of the screen layout. Lists are composed of list items. List items should be of a similar and obvious category of information (i.e., a list of design files, or a list of point locations). A list item contains at least a label in a consistent format that helps the user to scan and read the content efficiently.
