New Components


Split View devides the screen into left and right sections. This is useful for application that target large-screen devices.

The Split View can also be configured to be responsive to screen orientation or width. For example, it can be set to auto collapse into Sliding Menu when in landscape, and expands into Split View when in landscape orientation.

Click on the resize button on the right side of the Split View below to see the effect. When collapsed into Sliding Menu, swiping right/left will open/close the menu.

You can now easily show different content on different screen orientatio by using this element.


<ons-page class="center">    
  <div ons-if-orientation="portrait">
      <h1>Portrait content here!</h1>

  <div ons-if-orientation="landscape">
      <h1>Landscape content here!</h1>


You can also show different content on different platform.


<div ons-if-platform="Android">
  <h1>Show me only if run in Android.</h1>

<div ons-if-platform="iOS">
  <h1>Show me only if run in iOS.</h1>

<div ons-if-platform="BlackBerry">

<div ons-if-platform="chrome">
  <h1>Show me only if run in Chrome.</h1>

<div ons-if-platform="firefox">
  <h1>Show me only if run in Firefox.</h1>

<div ons-if-platform="Opera">

Swipe is important for mobile interaction. It just feels natural. We have added swipe interaction with Sliding Menu and Split View.

Try it on your phone!
### Grid System You can now easily layout application UI using ons-row and ons-col. By default all the columns in a row are equally sized to fit the row. You are not limitted to fixed columns, put any columns in a row. You can even align the columns vertically and offset columns.
