Brief summary of our plan and strategy
Our .NET MAUI controls are developed from scratch using the .NET MAUI graphics library and framework layouts.
We are working to deliver brand-new .NET MAUI controls to use in your migrated .NET MAUI projects with minimal breaking changes. The main reason we took this approach is to deliver .NET MAUI controls that are better than our Xamarin.Forms controls.
We are developing these controls from scratch with handler architecture to gain the following benefits:
- Improved performance.
- Lightweight controls by reducing views.
- Intuitive API structure to make it easier to shape the control to your requirements.
- Framework features such as animations, gradients, shadows, and more.
- Improved accessibility and keyboard (shortcuts and navigation) support.
Along with these benefits, we are also planning to provide attractive demos that will cover some common use cases.

I hope, you now have a clear vision of our 2022 roadmap for Syncfusion .NET MAUI controls. The controls that aren’t listed here will be planned and delivered next year based on your feedback, so don’t forget to make a request.
At Syncfusion, we strive to build world-class products that exceed developer requirements. We are very thankful for your great response to our Xamarin controls.
Your support and feedback helped make our Xamarin controls a market leader. With the same spirit, we are delivering .NET MAUI controls that will perform even better.
Will there be a release of the current Xamarin.Forms controls using Microsoft.Maui.Controls.Compatibility? If that is affirmative, What is the roadmap?
Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products. We do not have plans to provide compatibility version for Xamarin.Forms controls. However, we are trying to make the migration process seamless with minimal breaking changes in almost every controls.
Great news on themeing. It would be really great if you guys produced a blog or video along with sample of your maui controls with appthemeing. Thanks!
Hi TIM BELVIN,
We will definitely consider your requirement of producing required blogs and videos, once we provided the theme support for our controls
Will the visual theming support for controls be in the Essential Studio for .NET MAUI 2022 Volume 1 release? At least for the Scheduler control?
Hi Steve Graddy,
Currently, the scheduler doesn’t have theme support. We will implement this feature in any of our upcoming releases.
SfRotator isn’t mentioned. Does that mean it won’t make it? Has it been deprecated?
Hi Bradley Plett,
This roadmap is our plan for the year 2022. The controls (Available in Xamarin ) missed here, will be planned for the year 2023. So SfRotator may be planned in the year 2023.
Looking forward to converting to MAUI.
My current app makes extensive use of SfRadialMenu. It is a central feature of our interface. it is however not mentioned in the 2022 roadmap.
Will it continue to be supported in later releases?
Hi @Solomon Fried,
Yes, you can expect the control in a later release, maybe in the year 2023.
Noticed that SfTreeView is not in the list why?
We have noticed that SfRichTextEditor and SfNumericTextBox are not on the list. Does this imply that those controls are planned for release not until 2023?
I’m in the same boat. RichTextEditor (PDF Viewer) are both highest priority. Thanks!
When are the TabView icons and CenterButton will be available?
We will plan the required features in 2023
Just wondering if you are going to have image editing control similar to xamarin for .net Maui app?
.NET MAUI Image Editor control is planned for our Volume 2 2023, the second major release of the year, which we’re tentatively scheduling for the end of June.
That would be great!
I’m excited about the Image Editor!
