Quickly Build A Drawer With The TMultiView Component For Android And iOS Apps Using FireMonkey In Delphi

The MultiViewDemo sample demonstrates how to build an application that implements the “master-detail” interface and how to use the master panel presentation modes.

In this post, we’ll show a sample that allows you to change the master panel characteristics, such as mode, placement, sliding mode, shadow properties, etc, with the help and use of Windows App Development Tools. You’ll also understand how to implement your master panel in the Custom presentation mode.


You can find the FireMonkeyMobile MultiViewDemo sample project at:

  • Start | Programs | Embarcadero RAD Studio Sydney | Samples and navigate to:
    • Object PascalMulti-Device SamplesUser InterfaceMultiView
    • CPPMulti-Device SamplesUser InterfaceMultiViewDemo
  • Subversion Repository:
    • You can find Delphi and C++ code samples in GitHub Repositories. Search by name into the samples repositories according to your RAD Studio version.

How to Run the Sample

  1. Navigate to the location given above and open the project file:
    • C++Builder: MultiViewDemoCpp.cbproj
    • Delphi: MultiViewDemo.dproj
  2. Press F9 or choose Run > Run.

How It Works

After you start this sample application, it displays the following form:


Note: This screen displays the 32-bit Windows desktop application form as an example. However, the forms for other target platforms provide similar functionality.

Using this form you can perform the following basic operations:

  • Select the master panel presentation mode from the Multi View Mode list. The available modes are:
    • PlatformBehaviour
    • Docked Panel
    • Popover
    • Drawer
    • Custom
  • Specify parameters for each presentation mode on the DrawerPopover and Split View tabs, respectively.
  • Specify parameters of a shadow that the master pane casts on the detail pane on the Shadow tab.
