Cross-platform development is made easier with new components for Xamarin, a C#-based framework for building native apps for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. At the forefront of new Xamarin.Forms controls is a high-performance DataGrid control that provides a smooth, responsive experience for end users, and a robust built-in feature set for developers. For Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS, a new Maps control streamlines displaying geographical data, and a new NavigationDrawer control, modeled after the native Android component, grants developers the ability to organize content beyond the edges of a display. AutoComplete and NumericTextBox controls round out the new Xamarin controls to give developers sophisticated tools for capturing user input.
The Windows Phone platform also receives new AutoComplete and NavigationDrawer controls, as well as several new color palettes for the Windows Phone Chart control. Other significant highlights in Essential Studio 2015 Volume 2 include:
- New Spreadsheet control for WinRT.
- New Maps, AutoComplete, and NavigationDrawer controls for native Android and iOS development.
- Unbound rows in the WPF DataGrid control.
