Extending Blazor Bindings for Telerik UI for Xamarin

Earlier this year, Microsoft announced the Experimental Blazor Bindings initiative that enables developers to build native mobile apps with C# and .NET for iOS and Android, using UI components and behaviors based on Xamarin.Forms and defined by the Razon syntax. In R2 2020, Telerik UI for Xamarin shipped Blazor Bindings support for several controls, and with R3 2020 we are extending this list with AutoComplete and DataGrid!

AndroidX Support

AndroidX is a major improvement to the original Android Support Library. Like the Support Library, AndroidX ships separately from the Android OS and provides backwards compatibility across Android releases. AndroidX fully replaces the Support Library by providing feature parity and new libraries.

The Telerik components for Xamarin.Android are now migrated to AndroidX—a new version of the support library, following the release of Android 9.0 (API level 28). You can now use all the latest and greatest development in AndroidX along with our controls.

XLS format support for SpreadProcessing
