The Xamarin 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.

Display modes

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.
