Display List Item



The display list item is the simplest list item. It shows content in the form of labels and text.

As forms are generally the preferred control for combining labels and fields, display list items are seldom used.

Labels and text generally occupy 100% of the space they need. If a combination of the label and text is too long for the total space available, one or both are truncated so that each occupies a maximum of 50% of the space.
