We at Syncfusion are working on the second major release of 2021. Packed with cool and exciting features, the 2021 Volume 2 release is expected to be available in the last week of June. In this blog, I am going to give you a quick overview of the new features we plan to make available for the Xamarin.Forms platform in this 2021 Volume 2 release.
The cell navigation feature of the Xamarin.Forms DataGrid control will allow navigation between cells using an external physical keyboard attached to Android devices.
The Xamarin.Forms PDF Viewer will have the following new features in the 2021 Volume 2 release:
Add, select, and deselect annotations
This feature will allow users to add, select, and deselect annotations programmatically.
Cloud border style for shape annotations
This feature will allow users to render shape annotations with a cloud border style.
Polygon and cloud shape annotations
This feature will allow users to render, add, modify, save, and remove polygon and cloud-shaped annotations.
The Xamarin.Forms Autocomplete will keep the drop-down list open to allow users to easily select multiple values and will close the drop-down list when the focus changes.
The Xamarin.Forms ComboBox will deliver the following user-friendly features:
This feature highlights the typed text in all the items displayed in the drop-down list.
Like the Autocomplete control, the ComboBox will also provide support to keep the drop-down list open unless the focus changes.
Date Picker and Time Picker
Opened, closed, and closing events
The Xamarin.Forms Signature Pad will have new events for the draw-start and draw-end operations.
This feature will allow users to select discrete values while dragging the pointer in the Xamarin.Forms Circular Gauge control.
Numeric Entry (Numeric Textbox)
Avoid automatically generating decimal digits when unfocused
You can avoid generating decimal digits in the Xamarin.Forms Numeric Entry when you type integers into the text box.

Thanks for reading! We hope you are as excited as we are about the features in the upcoming 2021 Volume 2 release. Although these are the highlights, there will be many other new features in our Xamarin.Forms controls for the 2021 Volume 2 release. You can check them out once when the release is launched. It won’t be long!
