Question: What are the plans to support Xamarin.Forms Material Visual within the Syncfusion controls?

Xamarin.Forms Material Visual is released in 3.6+, in order to retain continuity in user experience and presentation within a solution leveraging standard Xamarin Forms controls and custom Syncfusion controls the themes or visual experience should be reconciled.

Presently that would affect custom implementations of:
  • Button
  • Entry
  • Frame
  • ProgressBar
  • DatePicker
  • TimePicker
  • Picker
  • ActivityIndicator
  • Editor
  • Slider
  • Stepper
What are the plans to support Xamarin.Forms Material Visual within the Syncfusion controls?

Thank you.

Hi Robert, 
Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products. Yes. We are planning to provide consistent appearance across iOS and Android for all controls that is compatible with material design. We will begin this work in our next release.  
Disclaimer: The date for the feature implementation is tentative and not a commitment on our parts.

Hi Supreet, 
We are planning to implement material design for applicable controls in our Volume 3 release. As of now, all our editor controls like numeric textbox, masked edit, autocomplete, combo box, data form will be rendered in material design when it is placed inside text input layout control.

"when it is placed inside text input layout control."

How do I do that? I wanted my AutoComplete's to match my entry inputs

Hi Andrew,

Greetings from Syncfusion.

We have analyzed your query and we can use AutoComplete control inside SfTextInputLayout as like below code snippet.

        <inputLayout:SfTextInputLayout ContainerType="Outlined" 
            <autocomplete:SfAutoComplete x:Name="autoComplete" > 
                    <ListCollection:List x:TypeArguments="x:String">                        
        <inputLayout:SfTextInputLayout Hint="Entry" ContainerType="Outlined"> 
            <Entry Text="Label"/> 

We have created sample based on this and please find the sample from below.


Please let us know if you have any other queries.

With the lastest SF Xamarin Forms controls, the Material Visual is broken, the TextInputLayouts are broken, the controls inside of Expanders don't renderize correctly (sometimes), etc.

If I set Visual="Default", the app works fine.

Using a couple of previous versions of SF, Material features are working fine.
