List Panel subpattern

This article provides information about the List Panel form subpattern. Application teams use this subpattern to manage two lists that move data between each other.


List Panel is the subpattern that application teams use to manage two lists that move data between each other. This pattern is meant to represent a modeled version of the SysListPanel class (programmatic) approach of managing two lists that move data between each other. The List Panel subpattern can be applied on the following controls:

  • TabPage control
  • Group control
