Telerik UI For Xamarin R1 2021 SP ships new stability and improvements for multiple controls, including Entry, MaskedInput, Calendar, Chart, ListView & more. See everything that's new.
It's been just over a month since we shipped the first Telerik UI for Xamarin release for 2021 and we are already coming up with a Service Pack edition that is concentrated on stabilizing and improving some of the most used controls in the suite. Of course, we have also considered the items that our customers have reported so we can help them in delivering the best mobile applications possible.
Stay tuned for a brief overview of the improvements in the R1 2021 SP release.
We added a couple of new features to the RadEntry element. The ability to set a MaxLength for the input field and support for read-only mode. In the GIF below you can have a look at how the Entry element behaves when the text is longer than the MaxLength property applied:

Those of you who are following the different releases and the new development will notice that the RadCalendar is one of the elements we are constantly trying to improve and enrich with new functionalities. This release is no different and we have fixed some top priority issues that were reported by clients:
Some of the other major controls on which we spent a lot of effort are the Chart and ListView elements.
We continue our efforts in not only adding new functionalities and controls to the suite but to stabilize and optimize the features you are already using in your applications. We also encourage you to be vocal about the controls and what you want to see improved or introduced. You can write in the Telerik UI for Xamarin Feedback portal or simply raise a ticket.
