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, and the Xamarin.Forms framework’s Entry and Editor controls.

Supported input controls

Enhance the appearance of numeric entry, masked input, entry and editor controls, and also add assistive labels and icons around those input views without writing much code to arrange and position those elements by wrapping the entry/input views with text input layout.

Double quotes

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.
