Telerik UI for Xamarin R1 2019 is packed with new features, like built-in recurring appointments, UI for editing appointments, PDF Viewer, Localization & Globalization and Visual Studio 2019 support.
With the Telerik UI for Xamarin R1 2019 release we continue to fulfill the suite with components and features, making it your primary development tool for the platform. With this release, we have added a PDF Viewer component, built-in screens for add/edit appointments in our calendar, recurring appointments, new popup control, header & footer in listview, as well as items reorder in grouped scenario, dock layout, localization and globalization, and support for Visual Studio 2019.
It is here! RadPdfViewer Beta for Xamarin Forms. PDF documents have been around for quite some time and they promise to stay. Now there is no need to open external apps to view PDF documents. They are shown right in your app, and the viewer can be configured as per developer’s preferences. RadPdfViewer comes with:
PDF Document Visualization: Display PDF documents with text, images, shapes, colors, lists, bullets and more
- Single Page and Continuous Scrolling Support: Choose your preferred presentation
- Commands Support: Be it Zooming, Navigating from page to page, FitToWidth or Toggling the Layout mode, you have it
- Toolbar Support: With the built-in toolbar, all commands and actions are already set in place:
You only need to decide which ones you need in the application.
The control is still in beta and we are actively working on adding new features and improving the performance. So give it a try
and let us know
what’s good and what could be better.
Calendar & Scheduling: Recurring Appointments and Add/Edit Appointment views
With this release, we introduce recurring appointments
and built-in views
for adding/editing/deleting appointments in RadCalendar. You can now add appointments with recurrence rule. The control exposes powerful APIs for creating various recurring patterns – from every working day to every third Monday of the month. And then there’s more – with the new built-in views all you need is to set a single property to enable adding and editing the appointments including the recurring ones. You can choose whether to edit a single occurrence or the entire series.
Ever needed to display a popup with more complex content than just a string and a button? Meet RadPopup
. It allows you to display arbitrary content and place it at a location of your choice – be it a point on the screen or relative to an existing view. Need a context menu for your listview, treeview or another navigation control? RadPopup saves the day. You can choose whether you want the popup dismissed when tapping outside it or you need the user to perform certain action within the popup. Setting a single property ensures there’s a background added to the whole screen, so the user is focused on the popup.
RadListView: Header & Footer and Reorder in Grouped Scenario
You asked, we listened. RadListView now features scrollable header and footer
. Easily configured through HeaderTemplate
properties, you can now add custom content in the top and in the bottom of your listviews. In addition, we added support for reordering items when the control is grouped.
Xamarin Forms application layout made easy! Arrange several views, so that each one is docked to a screen edge or to another docked view with ease. Let the last one fill the remaining space -- super quick with RadDockLayout
Localization & Globalization
With this release we’ve reviewed and improved the localization and globalization support
in our controls. We’ve added a number of keys, so that you can provide culture-specific values for the strings found in the suite. On the other hand, controls respect the device language and show date, time, numeric, currency etc. values accordingly.
Visual Studio 2019 Support
Last but not least, Telerik UI for Xamarin R1 2019 comes with support for Visual Studio 2019. All you need to do is download
the suite and give it a try.
