A list view displays content as line items in a single-column list that scrolls vertically. This view is best when users rely on reading text and viewing data to make their selection.
List items require less vertical space than grid items, allowing more items to be displayed on the screen.
In a list view, each row contains a tile representing one list item. Primary actions can fill the tile, so that users can initiate action from anywhere in the tile. For supplemental actions that are represented by icons and text, only the region containing the icons and text is actionable.
