Q) We are interested in taking a course on Xamarin—does Syncfusion provide one?

Q) If the PDFs are saved, are they removed automatically or do you need to code the removal?

Q) What is the link to the app used in this webinar?
Q) Is there a minimum or maximum API version supported by the controls?
A) Yes. Please refer to the following documentation link: https://help.syncfusion.com/xamarin/installation-and-upgrade/system-requirements.
