The Telerik UI for Xamarin R3 2019 SP is here, focusing on styling with a new feature in RadListView and addressing a number of issues.

A month after the 2019 R3 release of Telerik UI for Xamarin, we have now released our Service Pack focusing on stability and some nice additions to the suite. Along with the improvements listed below, it adds some styling sugar to RadListView. It is now enhanced with GroupHeaderStyle property for easy styling of the group headers. Using it is nice and easy:

<telerikDataControls:RadListView.GroupHeaderStyle>
    <telerikListView:ListViewGroupStyle
        BorderColor="Red"
        BorderLocation="Bottom"
        BorderWidth="2"
        TextColor="DarkBlue" />
</telerikDataControls:RadListView.GroupHeaderStyle>

Another convenience we have provided is the option to choose the keyboard to use with RadAutoCompleteView. The Keyboard property allows you to choose the desired keyboard layout to display any of the layouts supported by the framework.

AutoCompleteView Keyboard Property Setting

As it should be with a service pack, we have worked on a number of improvements in the controls across the suite. Here is a list with some of the issues we have addressed with it:

Calendar

  • Appointment styles in MultiDayViewStyle / DayViewStyle are not respected on Android
  • When TimelineInterval is set to "0:30" in DayView, it still shows as 1 hour on Android
