Recently we had the need for supporting streaming and broadcast playback for one of our App’s, making use of the Wowza Media Services but the only issue was that they were only available on their iOS and Android native SDK’s. Well not anymore!🥳XamBoy and I got to work and now we have just pre-released a brand new Plugin and set of Xamarin Bindings for the community.
Recently I came upon an issue using ListViews in iOS on Xamarin Forms with the pull to refresh feature enabled, that caused the first item in my listview to be scrolled off screen each time the refresh on the list completed.
In the second part of this series of articles about creating custom controls, we learned how to create an SlideView that supports sliding through different elements and displaying visual feedback to our users using a StepperView.
In this article we are going to see our next use case which is creating a TimelineView to support displaying timelines in our Xamarin Forms Apps.
In the first part of this series of articles about creating custom controls, we learned how to create an ExtendedListView that supports Infinite Scrolling and Commands to handle business logic directly on our ViewModels.
In this article we are going to see our next use case which is creating a Custom Stepper + CarouselView (SliderView) to support sliders in our Xamarin Forms Apps.
Recently, I have received a few messages from the community asking me mostly 2 questions: “How were you able to create 2 Xamarin Plugins in the last few months” and “What was your experience while creating them, what tools did you use?”, so this week’s post is inspired by those two questions and I will do my best to answer them fully, hoping that by the end of this post you can make your own plugin too and contribute something new for all of us in the community! 😊
Lately, I have been seeing members of the community asking around for custom views for different use cases, so I have decided to make a series of 3 parts, In which I will be creating different custom controls to demonstrate how Xamarin gives us the power to customize and add all the functionality we may need to the basic controls we already have available, giving you the ability complimented with some time to have some thoughts on how to create some really interesting and useful components for your apps.
This post officially starts my blogging journey, this blog is going to be the space where I’m going to share all of the cool and interesting things I have learned through these past few years as a Software Engineer, Mobile Developer and just about anything you would like me to talk about and share with the community, ranging from fundamentals of Software Engineer all the way to IoT and new technologies that peak our interest.
PD: Anything I write on my blog is not written on stone or sent directly from heaven as the 100% correct way of doing things, my main goal is to just share my experience and collaborate with the community on topics that interest me, so if you find something that is not quite right and can be improved or you have a different point of view on it. Please add a comment and let’s discuss the topic, I would be more than eager to do so!
Well that’s it for my first post, I hope you enjoy the content I will be sharing and that we can all learn and improve together through the blog. And remember you can always catch up with me at the next compilation break! 😛
