1m 14s

Building a Xamarin Forms UI - Controls brings together the user interface concepts from the preceding lessons 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 learn how to account for differences between Android and iOS layouts with conditional formatting.
