  1. Using CarouselItem
  2. Using ItemTemplate

 

The below illustrates how to create the carousel control in Xamarin.Forms UWP platforms.

For getting the view of carousel control, need to add the following assemblies in both PCL and UWP in Xamarin.

 

Project

uwp\Syncfusion.SfCarousel.XForms.dll
uwp\Syncfusion.SfCarousel.XForms.UWP.dll

 

 

  1. Create a carousel control using CarouselItem

C#

public partial class KBSolutionPage : ContentPage
{
public KBSolutionPage()
{
    InitializeComponent();
    SfCarousel sfCarousel = new SfCarousel();
    sfCarousel.ItemWidth = 170;
    sfCarousel.ItemHeight = 250;
    ObservableCollection<SfCarouselItem> collectionOfItems = new ObservableCollection<SfCarouselItem>();
    collectionOfItems.Add(new SfCarouselItem() { ImageName = "images1.png" });
    collectionOfItems.Add(new SfCarouselItem() { ImageName = "images2.png" });
    collectionOfItems.Add(new SfCarouselItem() { ImageName = "images3.png" });
    collectionOfItems.Add(new SfCarouselItem() { ImageName = "images4.png" });
    collectionOfItems.Add(new SfCarouselItem() { ImageName = "images5.png" });
    collectionOfItems.Add(new SfCarouselItem() { ImageName = "images6.png" });
    sfCarousel.DataSource = collectionOfItems;
    this.Content = sfCarousel;
}
}

 

  1. Create a carousel control using ItemTemplate

C#

public partial class KBSolutionPage : ContentPage
{
public KBSolutionPage()
{
    InitializeComponent();
    SfCarousel sfCarousel = new SfCarousel();
    sfCarousel.ItemWidth = 170;
    sfCarousel.ItemHeight = 250;
    var carouselModel = new List<CarouselModel> {
            new CarouselModel ("image1.png"),
            new CarouselModel ("image2.png"),
            new CarouselModel ("image3.png"),
            new CarouselModel ("image4.png"),
            new CarouselModel ("image5.png")
        };
    var carouselModelDataTemplate = new DataTemplate(() =>
    {
        var grid = new Grid();
        var nameLabel = new Image();
        nameLabel.SetBinding(Image.SourceProperty, "Image");
        grid.Children.Add(nameLabel);
        return grid;
    });
    sfCarousel.ItemTemplate = carouselModelDataTemplate;
    sfCarousel.DataSource = carouselModel;
    this.Content = sfCarousel;
}
}
public class CarouselModel
{
public CarouselModel(string imagestr)
{
    Image = imagestr;
}
private string _image;
public string Image
{
    get { return _image; }
    set { _image = value; }
}
}
