Inmersive UI Structure in .NET MAUI

Replicating an Immersive UI in .NET MAUI

Howdy! In this blog, we’ll be replicating an immersive UI in .NET MAUI based on this Dribbble design.

We are going to break down this UI as shown in the following screenshot to implement it step by step.

Replicating an Immersive UI in .NET MAUIWe will make some modifications to the original UI to get the most out of the controls with which we will be working.

Before starting, let’s have a glance at what will learn in this blog:

Let’s start the coding!

Easily build cross-platform mobile and desktop apps with the flexible and feature-rich controls of the Syncfusion .NET MAUI platform.

Main layout

First, let’s design the main layout of the UI.

Inside the ScrollView, we will use a new layout that .NET MAUI provides us, the VerticalStackLayout. It helps us organize the controls on our screen vertically.

Refer to the following code example.

<ScrollView VerticalScrollBarVisibility="Never">
 <!--Main layout-->
 <VerticalStackLayout Margin="20,0" VerticalOptions="Center">
   <!-- Add all your UI content here -->

Step 1: Main information

Step 1: Main informationTo understand the code clearly, we have divided the implementation into several steps.

Rounding the edges of an image

Images with rounded borders provide a more modern and fresh look to our UI. To achieve this, please follow these steps:

Add a frame

First, let’s add a frame and customize the following properties:

  • Padding: Set the padding value to 0. This will eliminate the blank spaces and allow our image to occupy the entire space of the frame.
  • IsClippedToBounds: Set this property with the value True. This indicates that the content will be clipped beyond its bounds.
  • CornerRadius: This represents the value that the edges will take to give the rounded corner effect.

After adding the frame, add the image. Refer to the following code example.

<!-- Main home image-->
<Frame Padding="0" IsClippedToBounds="True" HasShadow="False" CornerRadius="20" Margin="10,25,10,0">
<Image Source="mainhome.png" Aspect="AspectFill" HeightRequest="250"/>
<!-- You must write here what is explained in the next code block -->

Add profile image with a badge

To design the profile image, we are going to use the Syncfusion .NET MAUI Avatar View and Badge View controls:

  •  Add the Syncfusion.Maui.Core NuGet package.Adding the Syncfusion.Maui.Core NuGet package
  •  Go to the MauiProgram.cs file and register the handler for Syncfusion core by going to the CreateMauiApp method and adding the .ConfigureSyncfusionCore() method just below the .UseMauiApp<App>() line.
  • Now, add the Syncfusion.Maui.Core namespace in your XAML page.
  • Then, add the Syncfusion .NET MAUI Avatar View and Badge View controls inside a grid to make it easier to organize the controls. Refer to the following code.
    <!--Profile information-->
    <Grid RowDefinitions="Auto,Auto,Auto" ColumnDefinitions="Auto,*,Auto" Padding="25,30">
     <!-- Avatar & Badge view-->
      <sfControl:SfBadgeView Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="0" Grid.RowSpan="2" BadgeText="1" HeightRequest="70" WidthRequest="60" HorizontalOptions="Center" VerticalOptions="Center">
        <sfControl:BadgeSettings Type="Success" Position="BottomRight"/>
      <!-- Add the basic information here: user's name, status, and phone button information here. →
    <!-- You must write here what is explained in the next code block -->

Syncfusion .NET MAUI controls are well-documented, which helps to quickly get started and migrate your Xamarin apps.

Add name, status, and call button

Now, add the basic user information: name, status, and call button.

<!-- Basic information: user's name, status, and phone button-->
<Label Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="1" Text="Mark Won" FontAttributes="Bold" TextColor="Black" Padding="20,0,0,0" VerticalTextAlignment="End" FontSize="15"/>
<Label Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="1" Text="Available" FontAttributes="Bold" TextColor="Silver" Padding="20,0,0,0" VerticalTextAlignment="Start" FontSize="13"/>
<Button Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="2" Grid.RowSpan="2" ImageSource="phone" CornerRadius="25" HeightRequest="50" WidthRequest="50"  BackgroundColor="White" BorderColor="Silver" BorderWidth="1" VerticalOptions="Center"/>

 Step 2: Details

Step 2: DetailsFirst, let’s build the frame in which all the information of this block must be added.

<!-- General details-->
 <Frame CornerRadius="10" BorderColor="Silver" Padding="0,20,0,0" HasShadow="False">
  <Grid RowDefinitions="Auto,Auto,Auto,Auto,Auto,Auto,Auto,Auto" ColumnDefinitions="Auto,*,Auto" VerticalOptions="Center" HorizontalOptions="FillAndExpand" Padding="25,0">
    <!-- You must write here what is explained in the details block →
<!-- You must write here what is explained in the next code block -->

Then, add a set of information inside the previously added frame. For better understanding, we divided the explanation into sub-blocks.

Note: The names of these sub-blocks will be the same as those contained in the design line.


We add two labels and a BoxView to achieve a dividing line. We can also achieve this design using the line shape feature in .NET MAUI. 

Refer to the following code example.

<Label Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="0" Text="Pre-approved" FontAttributes="Bold" TextColor="Black" FontSize="12"/>
<Label Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="2" Text="Yes" TextColor="White" BackgroundColor="#00a77c" HorizontalOptions="End" FontSize="10"  Padding="9,4"/>
<BoxView Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="0" Grid.ColumnSpan="3" HeightRequest="1" Color="Silver" Margin="-25,15" />
<!-- You must write here what is explained in the next code block -->

Plan to buy

This information contains the same elements as the previous code block, except that this time, we will also start working with the FormattedText.

Refer to the following code to add different styles to the same label. This helps avoid declaring different labels.

<!--Plan to buy-->
<Label Grid.Row="2" Grid.Column="0" Text="Plan to buy" FontAttributes="Bold" TextColor="Black" FontSize="12"/>
<Label Grid.Row="2" Grid.Column="1"  HorizontalOptions="End" TranslationX="25">
   <Span Text="Opendoor" TextColor="Black" FontAttributes="Bold" FontSize="13"/>
   <Span Text=" Home Loans" TextColor="Black" FontSize="11"/>
<Image Grid.Row="2" Grid.Column="2" HorizontalOptions="End" VerticalOptions="Center" Source="arrow"/>
<BoxView Grid.Row="3" Grid.Column="0" Grid.ColumnSpan="3" HeightRequest="1" Color="Silver" Margin="-25,15" />
<!-- You must write here what is explained in the next code block -->

Down payment

Refer to the following code example to render the down payment details.

<!--Down payment-->
<Label Grid.Row="4" Grid.Column="0" Text="Down payment" FontAttributes="Bold" TextColor="Black" FontSize="12"/>
<Label Grid.Row="4" Grid.Column="1" Text="$100,000" TextColor="Silver" FontSize="12" HorizontalTextAlignment="End" TranslationX="20"/>
<Label Grid.Row="4" Grid.Column="2" Text="20%" TextColor="Black" FontSize="12" HorizontalTextAlignment="End"/>
<BoxView Grid.Row="5" Grid.Column="0" Grid.ColumnSpan="3" HeightRequest="1" Color="Silver" Margin="-25,15"  />
<!-- You must write here what is explained in the next code block -->

Offer Amount

Refer to the following code example to render the offer amount details.

<!--Offer amount-->
<Label Grid.Row="6" Grid.Column="0" Text="Offer Amount" FontAttributes="Bold" TextColor="Black" FontSize="12"/>
<Label Grid.Row="6" Grid.Column="2" Text="$500,000" TextColor="Black" FontSize="12" HorizontalOptions="End" />
<!-- You must write here what is explained in the next code block -->

To make it easy for developers to include Syncfusion .NET MAUI controls in their projects, we have shared some working ones.

Black space

Now, use another frame to simulate the footer of the main frame. This must have a black background.

Using the Margin property, we recover the borders required by the previous controls so that this frame will completely cover the footer of the parent frame. We achieve that by adding negative values to the edges.

Here, we also use another new layout called HorizontalStackLayout. It organizes the controls horizontally.

Refer to the following code example.

<!--Black space-->
<Frame Grid.Row="7" Grid.Column="0" Grid.ColumnSpan="3" HasShadow="False" BackgroundColor="Black" Margin="-25,20,-25,0">
  <Button ImageSource="mark" CornerRadius="25" HeightRequest="50" WidthRequest="50"  BackgroundColor="White"  VerticalOptions="Center"/>
  <Label Text="Mark will go over this with you before
               we make our all-cas offer." VerticalTextAlignment="Center" FontSize="12" Padding="15,0,0,0" TextColor="White"/>

Send for review button

Finally, add the Send offer for review button using the following code.

<Button Text="Send offer for review" FontAttributes="Bold" TextColor="White" CornerRadius="10" HeightRequest="50" BackgroundColor="#1c85e8" Margin="0,20"/>

Step 3: Offer

Step 3: OfferTo finish with the third step, create another page named OfferPage.xaml. Add the following code to render the Offer details.

<Grid RowDefinitions="*,Auto">
 <!-- Main image-->
 <Image Grid.Row="0" Source="mainhome.png" Aspect="AspectFill" Margin="0,-50,0,0"/>
 <!-- General information-->
 <Frame Grid.Row="1" CornerRadius="20" VerticalOptions="StartAndExpand" HasShadow="False" BackgroundColor="White" HeightRequest="400" Margin="0,-10,0,0">
  <Grid RowDefinitions="*,*,*,*,*">
    <Image Grid.Row="0" Source="key.png" WidthRequest="70" HeightRequest="70" Aspect="AspectFill" HorizontalOptions="Center"/>
    <Label Grid.Row="1" Text="Offer Accepted" FontSize="23" FontAttributes="Bold" TextColor="Black" HorizontalTextAlignment="Center"/>
    <Label Grid.Row="2" Text="Welcome home! We are wishing you 
                              all the best in your new home." FontSize="18" HorizontalTextAlignment="Center" TextColor="Silver"/>
    <Button Grid.Row="3" Text="Schedule final walkthrough" FontAttributes="Bold" TextColor="White" CornerRadius="10" HeightRequest="55" BackgroundColor="#1c85e8"/>
    <Label Grid.Row="4" Text="SKIP" TextColor="Silver" HorizontalTextAlignment="Center" Padding="0,15,0,0" />

And our UI is done! You can see the full design here.

Immersive UI is a really interesting topic!

Great article, as usually Leomaris. I do have a question. I notice you use Frame when shaping images. Why do you choose the frame over the more performant border?
