Working with inherited views

When we design the form, it is the same for all platforms, form factors, and orientations. We can preview how the form is going to look on different platforms, but the design is the same. FireMonkey Form Designer lets us define inherited views that are specific to a given platform and the form factor. Next to the Style combo box at the top of the Form Designer there is another combo box, View. Here we can add to our form additional form files that are specific to a given platform and a form factor.

Every form always has a built-in Master view. From the list we can add additional views.
