UI for Android Brings TabView, Gauges & AutoCompleteTextView_870x220

The new release of UI for Android brings you three new new components to help you build beautiful UI for your Android apps faster than ever.

The R1 2017 release of UI for Android comes with the official version of Gauges and AutoCompleteTextView, as well as with a brand new TabView (Beta) component. There are also a bunch of product improvements based on reports sent from our users. Let me go through what’s in the basket.

TabView (Beta)

Implementing a tabbed navigation on Android has always been a challenge. We decided to fix that by implementing a component that is more intuitive and easy to get started with. You can now easily implement a simple tab-based navigation with a few lines of code, listen for navigation changes and adjust the way tabs are presented:

TabView - Android

Major features of TabView include:

  • Overflow and Scroll tab layouts
  • Tab position: top, left, right, bottom
  • Tab alignment: right, center, left

To quickly get started with TabView for Android take a look at our online docs and the SDK samples on Github:


UI for Android - Radial Gauge

Gauges (Beta) for Android is already official. We have addressed issues and polished the documentation. The SDK samples are also updated with useful scenarios that can easily get you started:


UI for Android - AutoCompleteTextView

AutoCompleteTextView is also out of beta, with improvements in the Tokens layout and new examples. As with Gauges, you can take a look at our SDK Samples on Github for more developer oriented samples that demonstrate various aspects of the API. In addition, you can check out the AutoCompleteTextView documentation.

We hope that the new additions will further ease your Android application development, and will empower you to deliver outstanding functionality and UI to your users. Feel free to share your feedback on this release of any other ideas you may have in our feedback portal.
