To create a simple house list, add a Container List to the Web Page. In Data Binding > Data, add the following list of house objects:

    "name": "Little Prarie House",
    "image": ""
    "name": "Modern White House",
    "image": ""
    "name": "Blue Home",
    "image": ""

Nested under the Container List, you'll find a Container with two Label controls by default. Add an Image control as well. Use the Label for the name of the house and the Image to pass the image of the house.

Then edit the Text property of the label to
