The new FireMonkey TMultiView component

Posted by on in UI

I've extracted a short video (less than 3 minutes) from the RAD Studio XE7 First Look webinar were John Thomas (JT) shows you the new FireMonkey TMultiView component in action. You'll find the video on YouTube at

TMultiView represents a container (master pane) for other controls and provides a way for you to easily present alternate views of information.

The TMultiView component allows you to implement a master-detail interface, which can be used for any target platform (such as an iOS, Android, or desktop application).

In the master pane, you can display a collection of any visual controls, such as edit boxes, labels, lists, and so forth.

The detail pane displays information based on the properties of controls in the master pane.

For more information and a sample application, see the Embarcadero DocWiki "Mobile Tutorial: Using a MultiView Component to Display Alternate Views of Information (iOS and Android) at
