Controls in Xamarin
The course is part of this learning path
Building a Xamarin Forms UI - Controls brings together the user interface concepts from the preceding courses in the Building a Xamarin Forms UI series to create a simple data entry screen with text fields, a date picker, a slider control, and an embedded image. We see how to combine controls within a ContentView, coordinating their actions with C# in the code-behind to create a user defined control. We learn how to account for differences between Android and iOS layouts with conditional formatting.
Hi, and welcome to this Building a Xamarin Forms UI: Controls course.

We will setting up the controls in XAML and using C# in the code-behind file to coordinate controls' actions.
