The example below shows this being used to define a banner.

<CustomView head="true" name="ctrlBanner" type="md:Banner">
   <Toolbar name="tbPersonDashboard">
      <Item action="true" caption="IDS_EDIT" event="editApprovalPlan" icon="edit" name="mitEditApprovalPlan"/>
		<Instance name="item" value="(@)">
			<Bind name="title" value="title"/>
			<Bind name="status" value="summaryStringApprovalStatus"/>
			<Bind name="icon" value="template icon"/>
		<Properties vertical="#f"/>
				<VerticalTile caption="item title" description="item status" icon="item icon" round="#f"/>
			<BannerCard header="#t" responsive="#t" size=""l"">
