When will MaterialUI support vertical scrolling cards?

Such a fan of MaterialUI for Unity, it's a tremendous asset to have.

However, one key component of the Google's Material UI is the use of cards & vertical scrolling elements. I particularly need to use a form of scrolling cards, populating their content (images, link & text) from a server at runtime.

I've seen from other answers that this is in the pipeline. Could you give an indication of when this might be available?

Well, it's still on the pipeline, but it's THE current thing we're working on, it's on the top top of the list, so it should be there with the next release. Can't really say when because once it's implemented, we still have to test/tweak it to make it from good to great (or awesome? :D)...

BUT! Why don't you do it yourself for now?
It should be pretty simple to do. You just need to use the basic Unity Scroll Rect, with a vertical layout group for the content. And inside it, you just design one card with the MaterialUI components (a panel, with inside whatever you want), and then you just duplicate the card and update the data inside each card.

If you don't know how you can do all that at runtime, there's a great Unity tutorial to do just that!
There's some documentation right here: https://docs.unity3d.com/Manual/HOWTO-UICreateFromScripting.html
And the tutorial is here (in 9 parts!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TAJCr3_kfEc

I am kind of wondering when the cards will be released.

Is there any ETA?

Hey maskedmouse,

Really sorry but we've both been incredibly busy lately, so the best answer I can give at the moment is SOON™. It will be in the next update though :)
