A preview pane is the part of a list page that shows additional information about the highlighted record in the list. A preview pane is optional and is located under the list page grid. Before you add a preview pane to a list page, you must have first created an info part that includes the data fields you want to appear in the preview pane on the list page. For information about how to create the info part, see How to: Create a Part for a Preview Pane.
