The collection view cell is an object within the collection view. It displays content with images to provide a more visual viewing experience.
For guidance on how a collection view cell can be used within the collection view, see Collection View.
A collection view cell consists of a mix of image views (A.) and text labels and is used to preview information about an object.
Because collection view cells are meant to be highly visual, you must include an image view.
Title (B.), Subtitle (C.), and Attribute (D.) labels are optional and may be used to display additional information.
The collection view cell has two fixed sizes when displaying the labels – 110px and 120px.
Standard Image Without Labels
When no labels are displayed, the size of the collection cell depends on the image view’s size, which must be between 60px x 60px and 110px x 110px. The image view can be circular or rectangular, but when using the rectangular version, keep in mind that its width cannot be smaller than its height.
When showing a collection of people, use the circular profile image. If no profile image is available, initials can be displayed by default.
Different types of documents can be displayed in the collection view. These doctype icons live within a rectangular image.
For actions that can be easily represented in an icon form, the collection view cell allows for one or two actions. The number of actions used must be consistent across all collection view items.
For more complex actions, use a button action. When using a button action, only one action is allowed.
