Card component for Universal Dashboard

Cards contain content and actions about a single subject.

Cards are surfaces that display content and actions on a single topic. They should be easy to scan for relevant and actionable information. Elements, like text and images, should be placed on them in a way that clearly indicates hierarchy.

Simple Card

Although cards can support multiple actions, UI controls, and an overflow menu, use restraint and remember that cards are entry points to more complex and detailed information.

New-UDCard -Title 'Simple Card' -Content {
    "This is some content"

Advanced Card

You can use the body, header, footer and expand cmdlets to create advanced cards. The below example creates a card with various features based on a Hyper-V VM.

$VM = Get-VM -Name $VMName @ConnectionInfo

$Header = New-UDCardHeader -Title $VM.Name

$Footer = New-UDCardFooter -Content {
    if ($VM.State -eq 'Running')
        New-UDButton -Variant text -Text 'Stop' -OnClick {
            Show-UDToast -Message 'Stopping VM...' -Duration 5000
            Stop-VM -VMName $ @ConnectionInfo 
            Sync-UDElement -Id "$($VMName)_card"
    } else {
        New-UDButton -Variant text -Text 'Start' -OnClick {
            Show-UDToast -Message 'Starting VM...' -Duration 5000
            Start-VM -VMName $ @ConnectionInfo 
            Sync-UDElement -Id "$($VMName)_card"


$Body = New-UDCardBody -Content {
    New-UDTable -Data ($VM | Select-Object Name, State, CPUUsage, MemoryAssigned, Uptime)  -Dense 

$Expand = New-UDCardExpand -Content {
    New-UDElement -Tag 'div' -Content {
        New-UDTable -Data ($VM.DvdDrives | Select-Object Name, DvdMediaType, Path) -Title 'DVD Drives' -Dense

    $Drives = Get-VMHardDiskDrive -VMName $VM.Name @ConnectionInfo | Select-Object Name, Path
    New-UDTable -Data $Drives -Title 'Hard Disk Drives' -Dense

    New-UDTable -Data ($VM.NetworkAdapters | Select-Object 'SwitchName', 'MacAddress' ) -Dense -Title 'Network Adapters' 

New-UDStyle -Style '.ud-mu-cardexpand { display: block !important }' -Content {
    New-UDCard -Body $Body -Header $Header -Footer $Footer -Expand $Expand
