Volume 2 brings macOS support to the data grid, chart, and list view controls, plus four new controls and more schedule features to your cross-platform mobile projects.
The segmented control lets users choose from a linear set of two or more segments, each functioning as a button.
The combo box is a text box component that allows users to type a value or choose an option from a list of predefined options. It supports many features out of the box, such as data binding, filtering, UI customization, and more.
The check box is a selection control that allows users to select one or more options from a set. It has three states: checked, unchecked, and indeterminate.
