06 March 2020

This post includes a list of new products/features we expect to ship for Xamarin.Forms in our v20.1 release cycle.

As always, should you have any questions about these new products/features, please post your comments below. We’ll be happy to follow up.

If you own an active Universal Subscription, point your browser to the DevExpress Download Manager and download our v20.1 Early Access Preview today. Feedback is welcome and appreciated.

Early Access and CTP builds are provided solely for early testing purposes and are not ready for production use. This build can be installed side by side with other major versions of DevExpress products. Please backup your project and other important data before installing Early Access and CTP builds. 

This EAP may not include all features/products we expect to ship in our v20.1 release cycle. As its name implies, the EAP offers an early preview of what we expect to ship in two months.

Xamarin.Forms Charts – Range Bar Series

v20.1 will include a new Xamarin.Forms Range Bar series – designed to display value ranges grouped by Series point arguments (see the following article for additional information).

Range Bar Series in Dark Theme

Xamarin.Forms Charts – Axis Enhancements (Logarithmic scale, New Axis Layout)

Our Chart control’s Axis element now supports Logarithmic scale for numeric data. In addition, v20.1 includes new Axis layout modes (Absolute and Relative) so you can display axes at custom positions within the chart’s diagram.

Center Axis Sample in Dark Theme

Xamarin.Forms Data Grid - Row Drag and Drop

v20.1 will ship with Row Drag and Drop support. Use the AllowDragDropRows property to enable this behavior within your Xamarin app. For additional information, please refer to the following article.

NOTE: Data modifications during drag-and-drop operations will work correctly when the data source implements the IList interface.

V20.1 will ship with the following new Data Editors:

All text editors follow material guidelines and support data validation, interactive start/end icons and themes (Light and Dark).

Our Xamarin.Forms text editor will ship with input mask support and display format features.

Unfortunately, DevExpress delayed so much to deploy XF controls.


All the other competitors are a way ahead in the number of components!

Why did it take this long with Xamarin?

Agree with comments about how it took so long for Xamarin.  We went with Syncfusion as they had a scheduler control a few years ago and DevExpress did not - and it is free, whereas with DevExpress you have to get the Universal subscription at $$$.

This all looks great, but the cost of Universal just to get Xamarin is quite steep.  Any thoughts to selling Xamarin option separately?
