A list consists of a single continuous column of tessellated sub-divisions of equal width called rows that function as containers for tiles.
Tiles hold content, and can vary in height within a list.
Lists are best suited to presenting a homogeneous data type or sets of data types, such as images and text. They are optimized for reading comprehension while differentiating either between similar data types, or qualities within a single data type.
- If more than three lines of text need to be shown in list tiles, use cards instead.
- If the primary distinguishing content consists of images, use a grid list.
When the mouse and keyboard are the primary input methods, measurements may be condensed to accommodate denser layouts.
