Media browser


A Media Browser is used to group different media objects; the items are opened when clicked. It consists of an overview of different types of media: videos, photos or PDFs. It is used to collect various types of media. A small ‘preview’ of the media is shown by the use of thumbnails. When a thumbnail is clicked, you will see the media item in full screen. You can swipe from one media item to another by using the arrows.

There are specific controls for PDF files to scroll through the file, zoom in-out,…
