Cross-platform development can be a challenge, but Essential Studio for Xamarin.Forms gives developers even more tools for success with the addition of a new picker control, new radial menu control, and text selection and copy support for PDF Viewer.
The new picker control is used to pick an item from a list of items that can be customized or templated with a custom view. This control can also be opened as a dialog.
The new radial menu is useful for displaying a hierarchical menu in a circular layout. Typically used as a context menu, it can expose more menu items in the same space than traditional menus.
The chart control now supports multiple spline types for spline and spline-area series.
The chart control supports show/hide the trackball information for series.
DocIO now allows creating and modifying content controls in Word documents and provides a way to design documents with the following features:
Supports annotating arrow shape on image. This shape can be dragged-and-dropped, rotated, and resized.
List view provides support for refreshing the data source at runtime upon performing pull-to-refresh action.
Digitally sign documents such as .pfx files using PKCS#12 certificates with private keys.
Provide accessibility support by allowing users to create PDF/Universal Accessibility (PDF/UA) or section 508 compliant PDF documents.
Select text content in PDF documents and copy it to the clipboard. The copied text can be pasted in any applications on the device.
Presentation now allows inserting columns in tables in PowerPoint presentations.
The data grid control provides support to customize the row drag-and-drop and column drag-and-drop icons based on requirements.
Essential XlsIO allows users to sort filtered data by text, number, cell color, and font color. Data can also be filtered based on a custom text filter.
Users can specify row height and column width to automatically fit content for a range of cells.
