Revolutionize Your User Experience with the New .NET MAUI Parallax View

TLDR: Exploring the features of the new .NET MAUI Parallax View control and the steps to integrate it into your .NET MAUI application.

Introducing a new vivid layout control in the Syncfusion .NET MAUI framework for the 2024 Volume 1 release, the Parallax View.

The .NET MAUI Parallax View is a visual effect that binds the scroll position of a foreground element (e.g., a list) to a background element and moves the background element at a different speed. This will add a captivating parallax effect to your user interface, enriching the user experience.

Note: For more details, refer to the .NET MAUI Parallax View control documentation.

Getting started with the .NET MAUI Parallax View

We have seen the user-friendly features of the .NET MAUI Parallax View. Let’s see how to add it to your .NET MAUI app by following these steps.

Step 1: Create a .NET MAUI app

First, create a .NET MAUI application.

Step 2: Add the .NET MAUI Parallax View NuGet package

Syncfusion .NET MAUI controls are available in the NuGet gallery. To add the .NET MAUI Parallax View control to your project, open the NuGet package manager in Visual Studio, search for Syncfusion.Maui.ParallaxView, and install it.

Step 3: Add the namespace

Add the Syncfusion.Maui.ParallaxView namespace in your XAML page and initialize the .NET MAUI Parallax View control.

<ContentPage
    . . .    
   xmlns:parallaxView="clr-namespace:Syncfusion.Maui.ParallaxView;assembly=Syncfusion.Maui.ParallaxView">
   <Grid>
    <parallaxView:SfParallaxView/>
   </Grid>
</ContentPage>

Step 4: Register the handler

Syncfusion.Maui.Core NuGet is a dependent package for all Syncfusion .NET MAUI controls. So, in the MauiProgram.cs file, register the handler for Syncfusion core.

Refer to the following code example.

using Microsoft.Extensions.Logging;
using Syncfusion.Maui.Core.Hosting;

namespace ParallaxViewGettingStarted
{
    public static class MauiProgram
    {
        public static MauiApp CreateMauiApp()
        {
            var builder = MauiApp.CreateBuilder();
            builder
            .UseMauiApp<App>()
            .ConfigureSyncfusionCore()
            .ConfigureFonts(fonts =>
            {
                fonts.AddFont("OpenSans-Regular.ttf", "OpenSansRegular");
            });

            return builder.Build();
        }
    }
}

Step 5: Adding content to the Parallax View

The Content property represents the background view of a parallax view. You can set any kind of view to the Content property, such as Image and StackLayout.

Refer to the following code example.

<parallax:SfParallaxView x:Name="parallaxview">
 <parallax:SfParallaxView.Content>
  <Image Source="{Binding Image}" BackgroundColor="Transparent" HorizontalOptions="Fill" VerticalOptions="Fill" Aspect="AspectFill" />
 </parallax:SfParallaxView.Content>
</parallax:SfParallaxView>

Step 6: Binding source to the Parallax View

The Source represents the foreground view of the Parallax View. The value of the Source property should be a scrollable content or the view that implements the IParallaxView interface.

The SfParallaxView has built-in parallax scrolling support for the following controls:

The following code example demonstrates how to bind the Syncfusion .NET MAUI ListView to the Source property of the .NET MAUI Parallax View.

<parallax:SfParallaxView Source="{x:Reference Name=listview}" x:Name="parallaxview">
 <parallax:SfParallaxView.Content>
  <Image Source="{Binding Image}" BackgroundColor="Transparent" HorizontalOptions="Fill" VerticalOptions="Fill" Aspect="AspectFill" />
 </parallax:SfParallaxView.Content>
</parallax:SfParallaxView>

<ListView x:Name="listview" ItemsSource="{Binding Items}" BackgroundColor="Transparent" ItemSize="100">
 <!-- Listview content -->
</ListView>

After executing the above code examples, we’ll get the following output.
