I'd be happy to pay for NativeScript UI components, Im especially interested in ListView & SideDrawer
I'd expect to pay a single fee for access to all components.
Do you have any planned availability dates or proposed prices yet?

Thanks for writing and for your feedback.
NativeScript UI will be officially released at the end of March. We're currently planning to charge a fee for the Charting component. All other components will be available for free.
Can you tell us more about the applications you are planning to work on using NativeScript UI? This will help us better evaluate what kind of components and features to develop for future releases.
Also could you please release another update to RadCalendar prior to the official release end of March? I cant wait that long as im currently developing an app using it and currently its features are lacking and it has been a while since the last update.
Actually, Deyan missed to mention that the Calendar and ListView will also be a part of the paid product. So, it will be the SideDrawer that will be a part of the free one. I can assure you though that the UI for NativeScript Pro version will be at much affordable price.
Could you please let me know what feature you need from the Calendar? The official release date is very close (the week of March 28) and we may not issue yet another version before that, but the information you provide will allow me to let you know directly if the feature has been developed or not.
Thank you for the feedback.
Yes, we plan to introduce styling for the different view modes. If by 'gestures' you mean pinch in/out to zoom in/out, then yes, it will be supported. At the moment we do not plan to support events list appearing below the Calendar. You can implement this by consuming the events from the Calendar and showing them in a ListView.
Hi, I need the list view and the calendar to have 2 way binding in which, when i click a date it will show a list of events for the day and when i scroll (either vertically or horizontally) it switches the date selected on the week view of the calendar. When i click the date it should show some animation vertically or horizontally and scroll to the start of the day's events. I was looking at docs for scroll and saw scrollToVerticalOffset. The lists have to have a tag so that i can scroll it to the relevant position when i click a specific date.
It should be similar to the function below found on ionic: http://ionicframework.com/docs/api/service/$ionicScrollDelegate/
Tell the scrollView to scroll to the element with an id
If no matching element is found, it will scroll to top.
I want to create a seamless experience where users dont have to keep clicking dates to show the relevant list of events and be able to scroll infinitely both up and down with the marked dates changing. I can implement this if i load an entire month's worth of events into the list and scrollTo a position of the beginning of the specific date.
Please advise or offer any solutions similar to this.
Another question is you do plan to introduce styling including color codes for different events with markings of different color codes on a specifc date like http://www.telerik.com/sfimages/default-source/blogs/calendar-overview-png right?
Just to let you know, we released the first official version of UI for NativeScript. For more information, please refer to this article. Announcing UI for NativeScript—True Native Cross-Platform UI.
Further, on the features you asked for:
A possible solution to scroll the list view when date is selected in calendar is to use its scrollToIndex method. You should create a list with the events for the current month in chronological order which should be the item source for the list view. When the user taps a date you could search the events list for the first event which date matches the tapped date and the scroll the list view using this index. However, currently changing calendar selected date when the list view is scrolled is not achievable.
Styling the events in the calendar is possible since our last release. To change the color of the event you should use its eventColor property. Consider the example below:
I hope this helps.
I have a DevCraft Ultimate subscription. Shouldn't NativeScript premium components be included in this subscription?
You had mention in the past that NativeScript would be included in DevCraft Ultimate subscription. Please see link below
Can you please let us know if we should expect this to happen anytime soon?
Thank you for raising this question.
Around the official introduction of UI for NativeScript, we once again discussed this topic internally taking into account various aspects of the question, and decided that for the moment we are not going to include UI for NativeScript in the DevCraft Ultimate bundle. Should this change, we will make an announcement accordingly. We will modify the blog article, so that it does not create false expectations in our DevCraft customers. Thank you for pointing it out, your Telerik points have been updated.
