The Xamarin.Android Segmented control is a linear segment made up of multiple segments with each segment functioning as a button. The segments are the same size and allow users to select between multiple contexts.
Depending on your application, different scenarios may require icons, text, or a combination of both for effective communication. The segmented control supports these three options.

Items populated in the segmented control can be displayed as icons with accompanying text.
When the available space in the segmented control is not equally distributed, the items beyond the edges of the control can be viewed by scrolling the panel.
