What's New in Essential Studio for Xamarin.iOS


What's New in Essential Studio for Xamarin.iOS

2020 Volume 1 continues our work in making the best Xamarin.iOS controls around with trend line support in the Charts control, a current time indicator in the Scheduler control, and row span and column span support for fields in the DataForm control.



Trendlines support has been provided to the chart control. Trendlines are lines that are used to analyze or indicate the general course or tendency of trends in data graphically. It is built on the assumption based on current and past price trends.
