Layouts are the key to a cross-device UI by providing a shared definition of layout concepts and then using that definition to create a native interface. Learn about the various layouts and controls available in Xamarin.Forms.
- [Instructor] As we'll be using Xamarin forms…to build our user interface, it's important to understand…the various elements that you can use when you're defining…that hierarchy of controls that defines what you display…and the interactions that a user can make,…and for that we'll use Pages, Layouts and Views…or Controls, as you may think of them.…We've talked about Pages a little bit,…but let's look at some of the other options…that we have available for the Pages we can use.…We're seeing the ContentPage.…It allows us to put Controls…inside of the ContentContainer.…
We've got a NavigationPage that we saw,…allows us to navigate through and have a NavigationStack…under which we can push and pop other pages.…There's also a MasterDetailPage that allows you to show,…for example, a list of data, the master,…as you select an item also display the detail…and that's smart enough to function differently…when you're on a tablet or on a larger screen…versus a phone or smaller screen.…There's TabbedPages.…You can have multiple tabs that you can select…
