The Xamarin Text Input Layout is a container control that lets you add a password toggle icon to show or hide passwords, leading and trailing icons, and assistive labels such as floating label, hint, error, and help text on top of SfNumericTextBox, SfMaskedEdit, SfAutoComplete, SfComboBox and the Xamarin.Forms framework’s Entry, and Editor controls.

Supported input controls

Enhance the appearance of numeric entry, masked input, autocomplete, combo box, entry and editor controls, and also add assistive labels and icons to those input views without writing much code to arrange and position those elements by wrapping the entry and input views with the Text Input Layout control.

Container types

Choose any of the containers (filled, outlined, and none) that best match your app’s style.

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.
