We are happy to announce the immediate availability of DevExpress Mobile UI for .NET MAUI Preview 12, AND our newest .NET MAUI offerings – the DevExpress .NET MAUI Scheduler and Popup control.

With the scheduler, Is "Agenda view" on the way?  The only other thing that is missing really for my industry (Hospitality) we use Tape Charts for scheduling resources.

Aside from that, this is looking good.

@Rick Mathers: Thank you for your feedback on your use-case scenarios. Your 'Agenda View' request is reasonable and I certainly appreciate its overall business value. Unfortunately, our resources are not infinite – and at present – we’re focused on making our first .NET MAUI release in v22.1 the best ever (from the performance, testing and overall quality point of view).

@Hedi Guizan, Akin GUNES: This is certainly an interesting idea, though we have not planned to invest into it in 2022 (except for research work). We are all waiting for the final .NET MAUI release in the middle of 2022. Currently, XAF's Blazor UI can be used in mobile web browsers and also leveraging device functions like geolocation, camera, etc.

BTW, what do you think about .NET MAUI Blazor hybrid apps (when a native BlazorWebView displays a web app like VSCode, Teams)? This is pretty similar to how Electron.NET-based apps work and may be usable with existing XAF's Blazor UI.

@Giorgio: Am I correct that you want to preview dashboards (no designer) on small/mobile screens?

@RO: Thanks for describing your requirements.

Hi Dennis.

It is an specific Dashboard component for MAUI what I mean.

Such as it exists for WinForms or ASP.NET.


A component designed to the projects of MAUI, where we can use the designer of Visual Studio of the Dashboard or an Designer for end users, where in the MAUI project I can build.


Then in the resulting MAUI application, the end users can Preview such Dashboards.

No matter which plaftform we publish (Desktop, iOS, etc) from MAUI project.

Hello. Was there any general timeline for support of MAUI Preview 13? I updated my VS and project, but didn't realize DevExpress tools only support 12.

@Matthew: DevExpress .NET MAUI controls support Preview 13 since about 3 weeks ago. You can find the latest versions of our free .NET MAUI libraries in NuGet.

@Dennis Thank you very much.

I update the DevExpress.Maui .NET MAUI RC1-compatible packages, that's great.

By the way I have a problem of the the DevExpress.Maui.Controls.DXPopup control,

I use Android 7.1.2 tablet, when the DXPopup popup in the centerscreen, the navigation bar will be displayed after. Then the DXPopup windows will move up distance,  the DXPopup position just like: X:100, Y:100 move to X:100, Y:80;

(the code how I set the navigation bar hidden:

public class MainActivity : MauiAppCompatActivity
{
protected override async void OnCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState)
{
base.OnCreate(savedInstanceState);
Window.AddFlags(WindowManagerFlags.Fullscreen);
Window.SetNavigationBarColor(Android.Graphics.Color.Transparent); //导航栏透明
Window.AddFlags(WindowManagerFlags.DrawsSystemBarBackgrounds);
Window.SetStatusBarColor(Android.Graphics.Color.Transparent);
}

public override void OnWindowFocusChanged(bool hasFocus)
{
base.OnWindowFocusChanged(hasFocus);
if (hasFocus)
{
//https://developer.android.com/training/system-ui/immersive.html#java
this.SetSystemUiVisibility();
}
}

public static void SetSystemUiVisibility(this Activity activity)
{
var uiOptions = SystemUiFlags.HideNavigation | SystemUiFlags.LayoutHideNavigation | SystemUiFlags.LayoutFullscreen | SystemUiFlags.Fullscreen | SystemUiFlags.LayoutStable | SystemUiFlags.ImmersiveSticky;
activity.Window.DecorView.SystemUiVisibility = (StatusBarVisibility)uiOptions;
}

)

I don't want to display the navigation bar when the window pops up, because the popup windows move up after show, can you help me handle this problem?

 PS: Sorry for my junk English(✿◡‿◡)

Hi, a pdf viewer would be a great addition. Pdf is such a popular format now.

[Android] Some DevExpress DevControl issues in the .NET MAUI 1.0

I use .NET MAUI RC3 and DevExpress.Maui.DataGrid (22.1.1-pre-22115) in Android, all work fine.

Today I update the project the new version of .NET MAUI 1.0 (6.0.312), see here, I run my app, by the DataGridView just show the Column Header, the DataRow is empty. There is the same problem when I create a newest maui project template demo with the DevExpress.Maui.DataGrid.

It seems like each time I update the maui new version, the new problem is coming together.

Issue 1: I don't want to show the navigation bar when I show the popup windows, How can I handle this? ( I dont't found a better way to hidden the Navigation bar, so I only can't use the Obsolete method to hidden it)
Issue 2: The DataGridView can see the row's data, It seems like the bug of the Layout Control. But in MAUI RC3 is OK.
Issue 3: The DevExpress DXCollectionView not supported the GridItemsLayout. (The Rotorsoft.Forms CollectionViewSource is troublesome to use, the DevExpress DXCollectionView is easy to use the Filter, Sorting...)

P.S. Forgive my poor English O(∩_∩)O

I'm using 

Visual Studio Version 17.3.0 Preview 1.1

The current preview doesn't work with iOS. 

Is there any light on the horizon for a new version. Nothing has happened since April.

@Manfred Rohleder: Our current MAUI Preview is a beta version of the upcoming v22.1 release. We are currently focused on polishing the last bits and pieces. I cannot share any estimates, but it should be ready soon.

Thank you for your report. I reproduced this issue and created a ticket for it: MAUI applications cannot be deployed to iOs.
