Data List

The documentation on this page is considered legacy.

We will be updating this content to our new principle-based format in the near future.

A data list, with terms and descriptions.


The Data List displays metadata and groups of descriptions in a "key: value" pair configuration.


The Data List should be used to display data-based information. It can also be set to be toggled between a collapsed and expanded state, saving screen real estate.


  1. Title. Title for the entire Data List.

  2. List Item. Individual Row of the Data List.

  3. Key. Provides the Key for the key:value pair.

  4. Value. The corresponding value of the declared Key.
