Section and view

The section occupies an area where you can add multiple views. The view is a layout container, it's similar to a page or window, however, it can only be in a section. The View Navigation widget navigates views in a section. You can use multiple pages with the Menu widget or use a Section and view with the View Navigation widget to create a similar experience, but there are some main differences between them:

  • For rendering - when loading multiple pages, only the content in the current page is rendered at the first time; when loading multiple views in a section, all content in the views are rendered but only the current view is visible, all others are hidden.
  • For animation - you can define transition animation on the section only.

In app config, the sections are defined by sections, the views are defined by views.
