Xamarin.Forms Text Input Layout or Label Entry is a container control that allows you add a floating label, a password toggle icon to show or hide passwords, leading and trailing icons, and assistive labels such as error messages and help text on top of input controls.

Supported input controls

Enhance the appearance of the Syncfusion NumericUpDown, Numeric Entry, Masked Entry, Autocomplete and ComboBox controls; the Xamarin.Forms framework’s Entry and Editor; and even the entry and editor controls in Xamarin.Forms for WPF. Add assistive labels and icons to those input views by just wrapping the entry and input views with the Text Input Layout control.

Container types

  • Filled: The background of the input view will be filled with the container color, and the baseline stroke and thickness will be changed based on the state of the input view.
  • Outlined: The container will be framed with a rounded border.
  • None: The container will have an empty background and space around it.

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.
