In our company we are using Xamarin.Forms not only to create mobile applications (Android and iOS) but also for desktop (WPF and UWP). For this reason, it would be great if all controls work with these backends. It would also be essential that the controls work with the UNO Platform backend for WebAssembly and XF.

Please support all the Xamarin controls, it doens't make sense to only have a few. Please make Xamarin the main feature for 2020 Devexpress development.

What really is needed is a real good popup and message control.

Please consider these controls to be available in other subscriptions or as a separate product. The universal subscription is too much if you use WinForms, Wpf and -if possible- Xamarin Forms.

We are using Xamarin Forms for Android and desktop (WPF) application. Please add support for desktop platform. Now we have our own renderers for WPF platform (e.g. DatePickerRenderer uses DevExpress.Xpf.Editors.DateEdit).

A major competitor is probably 2 years ahead of you on Xamarin Forms. But if you want to use .NET Core and not ASP then Xamarin is really the only logical way to go for building that 1 app to "rule them all"!

Full steam on Xamarin I would think.

DevExpress DataGrid is amazing component compared to other main competitors, now if they can release Editor controls at the same level they will be industry leaders IMHO.

Oh, and their supports is absolutely amazing.
