A grid view displays two or more columns of images representing content items, with brief text beneath each image. This view is best when users rely primarily on images to make their selections.
Grids are vertically scrollable and can vary in size, spacing, and number of columns. The content in the grid can also be grouped into categories.
Dialogs contain text and UI controls. Because users must respond to them, they should never be obscured, either by other elements or by the screen edge.

These reference layouts show how to adapt grids to accommodate screens of various widths and heights. (Width and height categories are defined in the Layout section.) Note that all pixel values are in rendered pixels, before any down-sampling or up-sampling occurs.
