Working with containers

Updated on July 20, 2021

Use containers to present dynamic content on the screen. Learn about the structure of a container, the various stages of its life cycle, and how to retrieve information from it.

A container is a component that comprises various items. Based on the type of container, it can contain single or multiple items. Each container item has a data context and unique identifier.

The data context of a container item can be shared with a child container item or a related container item as needed. Each container maintains the order in which its items were accessed.

If a container contains multiple items, it displays the only active item. If we delete the active item from the container, it displays the most recently used item that becomes active in the container.
