ListView Improvements

As always, we've trained our focus on the component you use the most. This time we extended the component with several events, giving you ability to handle even more scenarios: 

  • GroupHeaderTap event
  • ItemHold event
  • ReorderStarting
  • ReorderEnded
  • ReorderItemStyle
  • New method ScrollItemIntoView

With these, you can get fine-grained control over a variety of interactions with the ListView component, like defining actions when an item is being held down, getting informed when a reorder operation starts/ends if you want to execute some logic in this case, or even customizing the reorder item.

You can read more about these APIs in the our documentation.

NumericInput Improvements

The NumericInput control was just released few weeks ago. It allows you to take numeric input from your end users and has vast customization abilities. We also have a nice walk-through post that you can check out here for more details.

With this service release, we have accommodated some of the feedback we gathered for the component and made it even more powerful.
