The Xamarin.Android Picker control is an item selector control, which can be opened as a dialog. It allows users to pick an item from a list that can be modified with custom views. Its rich feature set includes functionalities like data binding, multiple-column layout, cascading selection, and headers and footers with custom views.

Data Sources

Data binding works out-of-the-box for the most popular data sources. The picker control can automatically generate its columns based on data source structure.

A creator of online tutorials for Microsoft technologies, your controls helped to provide a rich user experience. I wanted a look and feel like a Windows Store app and the Tiles are useful for that.

We're using the file formats and Windows/JavaScript list controls a lot. They're fast, easy to use, and the documentation is good and contains examples. Tickets with questions or suggestions were answered within a day, so we're happy to use the Syncfusion libraries.
