Pane template

The Pane template presents detailed information and prominent actions.

For easy scanning, actions and information rows are limited to 4 each. This template is useful for presenting non-editable metadata, such as location and reservation details, and for taking action based on data. For a version of this template with a map and no image, navigation apps can use the Map template.

This template can be embedded in the Tab template to provide tabbed navigation.


  • Header with optional action strip
  • Up to 2 buttons, where one can be designated as primary (optional; apps can use action strip buttons instead)
  • Up to 4 non-actionable rows (1 row is mandatory)
  • Optional large image (see example)
