Samples and Templates

These samples are just a teaser of the type of cards you can create. Go ahead and tweak them to make any scenario possible!

Important note about accessibility: In version 1.3 of the schema we introduced a label property on Inputs to improve accessibility. If the Host app you are targetting supports v1.3 you should use label intead of a TextBlock as seen in some samples below. Once most Host apps have updated to the latest version we will update the samples accordingly.

Choose sample:

Templating enables the separation of data from the layout in an Adaptive Card. It helps design a card once, and then populate it with real data at runtime. Note: The binding syntax changed in May 2020. Get started with templating
