Introducing the New .NET MAUI Rotator Control

Introducing the New .NET MAUI Rotator Control

TLDR: Showcasing the features of the new Syncfusion .NET MAUI Rotator control with vivid, picturesque illustrations and the steps to get started with it.

We are happy to introduce the new Syncfusion .NET MAUI Rotator control in the Essential Studio 2024 Volume 1 release.

The .NET MAUI Rotator is a navigation control used to display image data and navigate through them. The images can be selected either by thumbnail or by dot support.

In this blog, we’ll explore the key features of the .NET MAUI Rotator control and the steps to get started!

Key features

The key features of the new .NET MAUI Rotator control are:

The .NET MAUI Rotator control supports dot and thumbnail navigation modes to quickly navigate to the desired item.

Autoplay and looping

You can use the .NET MAUI Rotator control as a slide show to display a set of items in a defined interval of time with no interactions.

You can also navigate back to the first item when they reach the last item by setting the looping to true. This provides a better review experience when the control is loaded with many items.

Getting started with the .NET MAUI Rotator control

We have seen the key features of the .NET MAUI Rotator control. Let’s learn how to integrate it into your .NET MAUI app and utilize its features by following these steps:

Step 1: Create a .NET MAUI app

First, create a new .NET MAUI application.

Step 2: Add the Syncfusion .NET MAUI Rotator control

The Syncfusion .NET MAUI controls are available on the NuGet Gallery. To add the .NET MAUI Rotator control to your project, open the NuGet package manager in Visual Studio. Search for Syncfusion.Maui.Rotator, and then install it.

Step 3: Register the Syncfusion core handler

In the MauiProgram.cs file, register the Syncfusion core handler and configure the fonts. Refer to the following code example.

using Microsoft.Maui;
using Microsoft.Maui.Hosting;
using Microsoft.Maui.Controls.Compatibility;
using Microsoft.Maui.Controls.Hosting;
using Microsoft.Maui.Controls.Xaml;
using Syncfusion.Maui.Core.Hosting;
namespace RotatorSample
{
   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 4: Add the required namespace

Now, include the Syncfusion.Maui.Rotator namespace in your XAML page.

xmlns:buttons="clr-namespace:Syncfusion.Maui.Rotator;assembly=Syncfusion.Maui.Rotator"

Step 5: Initialize the .NET MAUI Rotator control

Then, initialize the Syncfusion .NET MAUI Rotator control.

<ContentPage.Content>
 <syncfusion:SfRotator x:Name="rotator" />
</ContentPage.Content>

Step 6: Populate the Rotator items collection

Finally, populate the collection of rotator items in the View model with the image data. Refer to the following code example.

public partial class MainPage : ContentPage
{
    public MainPage()
    {
        InitializeComponent();

        List<SfRotatorItem> collectionOfItems =
        [
            new SfRotatorItem() { Image = "image1.png" },
            new SfRotatorItem() { Image = "image2.png" },
            new SfRotatorItem() { Image = "image3.png" },
            new SfRotatorItem() { Image = "image4.png" },
            new SfRotatorItem() { Image = "image5.png" },
            new SfRotatorItem() { Image = "image6.png" },
        ];
        rotator.ItemsSource = collectionOfItems;
    }
}

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