Road Map for Essential Studio for Xamarin.Android


New components

We are planning to add following components to Xamarin.Android:

Attribute support for designing in AXML file

The chart component can be added to an AXML file, but other elements of the chart such as the axis, series, legend, etc., can be configured using C# code.
