Aloha friends and welcome to the new Telerik UI for .NET MAUI release! Are you ready to dive into the next phase of your experimental cross-platform development?
When we first kicked off the development of our UI suite, we committed to bringing support for multiple platforms, and we are delighted to announce that—in addition to our WinUI support—we are now shipping support for macOS! Moving forward, you will be able to start building your beta macOS apps with the Telerik UI for .NET MAUI suite.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a release without adding new components to our ever-growing library. With this new release, we have included a ListView component, NumerciInput, DockLayout and WrapLayout. Let’s dive deeper into the waters of (.NET) MAUI!
Before we dive into macOS and the new controls, we’d like to recap the highlights of Microsoft .NET MAUI Preview 8, which we fully support!
The crown jewel of the latest .NET MAUI Preview version is the new Visual Studio 2022 integrations. When you fire up the Visual Studio 2022 Preview 4, you can check .NET MAUI within the Mobile Development with .NET Workload. Similarly, if you are targeting desktop development, you will get C++ workloads.
Other notable highlights include updates to the .NET MAUI SDK and Android updates. For more information on what’s new in the .NET MAUI Preview 8, check out the Microsoft release blog post.
Alongside DataGrid, ListView is one of the most indispensable components for a developer! With this release, the Preview of the Telerik UI for .NET MAUI ListView component is finally ready to be unveiled! The component is packed with all the features you will need to implement a scenario where a list of items is required, including:
To get started with the Telerik UI for .NET MAUI Listview, check out our product documentation.
Another control that joins the Telerik UI for .NET MAUI family is NumericInput. A highly customizable input control for numeric data, it comes with built-in support for defining custom steps for increment/decrement value, minimum/maximum values, as well as formatting input values.
To explore the full set of features of the Telerik UI for .NET MAUI NumericInput control, visit our product documentation.
Two layout controls designed to help your application development join the Telerik UI for .NET MAUI family—DockLayout and WrapLayout.
The DockLayout control provides you with a mechanism for child elements to be docked to the left, right, top or bottom edge or to occupy the center area of the layout.
For more details about the DockLayout control for .NET MAUI, check our product documentation.
The WrapLayout is another layout control for the Telerik UI for .NET MAUI suite. It provides a mechanism for child elements to be arranged in rows or columns (depending on orientation property) until the available space is filled and then wraps them on а new row or column.
For more details about the WrapLayout control for .NET MAUI, visit our product documentation page.
Remember last week, when we used our R3 2021 release blog post to hint about an upcoming support for a new platform? Well, we are excited to announce that with this preview version of the Telerik UI for .NET MAUI, we support macOS!
Telerik UI for .NET MAUI now support two of the most popular desktop platforms—Windows and macOS. Developers get to leverage their XAML/C# skills and reach mobile/desktop from a true single codebase.
As a finale to a truly great release, we’d like to share one final new addition—our brand-new SDK browser demo application! The application demonstrates the various features of our existing .NET MAUI controls and allows you to see them in action.
You can access the SDKBrowser application by following the steps described in this section from our help documentation.
