    Cardlayout is a layout that allows end-users to change component like changing cards. The selectedIndex will decide which component will be shown in the view port. When the value of selectedIndex changes or when next() or previous() is called, transition of components through animation will occur whereas the orient attribute decides whether the direction of the animation is horizontal or vertical.

        <cardlayout id="card" width="300px" height="200px" style="border:3px solid orange" selectedIndex="1">
            <div vflex="1" hflex="1" style="background-color:yellow;padding:20px">card 1</div>
            <div vflex="1" hflex="1" style="background-color:green;padding:20px">card 2</div>
            <div vflex="1" hflex="1" style="background-color:skyblue;padding:20px">card 3</div>
            <button onClick="card.previous()">previous</button>
            <button onClick="">next</button>
              onClick='card.setOrient("horizontal".equals(card.getOrient()) ? "vertical" : "horizontal")'>
              change orient

    Size Issue

    If Cardlayout of hflex is set as "min", it's width will be decided by the selected component's size when initializing. On the other hand, if the child component of Cardlayout sets hflex="1", its width will equal to Cardlayout's width.

    Swipe Distance Issue

    On tablet, think for user experience Cardlayout will change component if swipe distance bigger than one-third of it's width/height. If Cardlayout's width/height is smaller than 90px, the minimum trigger distance will be 30px. Another case is Image. If Cardlayout's child component is Image, it will use default swipe distance trigger setting.
