represents an object which flips between displaying and each time it is clicked.
cyclically flips through successive .
makes be the object currently displayed.
  • Clicking anywhere inside a FlipView advances to the next object.
  • Shift-clicking goes to the previous object.
  • FlipView[list, Dynamic[i]] takes the displayed object to be specified by the dynamically updated current value of i, with the value of i being reset if a new object is displayed.
  • The following options can be given:
AlignmentAutomatichow to align objects in the display area
BackgroundNonebackground color to use
BaselinePositionAutomatichow to align with a surrounding text baseline
BaseStyle{}base style specifications for the FlipView
EnabledAutomaticwhether controls are enabled
FrameMarginsAutomaticmargins inside the overall frame
ImageMargins0margins around the display area
ImageSizeAutomaticthe overall image size for the display area
  • With ImageSize->All, FlipView always leaves space for the largest of the to be displayed, so that its overall size does not change.
  • The settings for BaseStyle are appended to the default style typically given by the style in the current stylesheet.

By default, FlipView resizes for each pane:
With ImageSize->All, FlipView leaves enough space to display without ever resizing:
Start by displaying the third slide:
The setting is based on position:
Connect FlipView to a slider:
Center the expression:
Align the expression to several positions:

By default FlipView is enabled:
By setting Enabled ->False, FlipView is disabled but visible in its current state:
Add margins within the view:
Add margins outside the view:
Use ImageSize to control the width:
By setting the second element you can also control the height:
