Mobile developers working with Android, iOS, and Xamarin now have a date-time range navigator control at their disposal to allow end-users to filter a specific range of data from a larger one. Its rich feature set includes auto-interval calculation, tooltips, interactive range selection, smart labels, and more. Cross-platform mobile developers working specifically with Xamarin.Forms, Xamarin.Android, and Xamarin.iOS can try out a variety of new features for the chart control. These include a new step line series, logarithmic axis support for plotting extremely large numbers, vertical charts, and smart labels in pie charts that avoid overlapping.
Xamarin.Forms developers can also implement a new schedule control in their apps. The schedule control provides an interface similar to the Google calendar app to give end users an intuitive, familiar experience. Users can create and edit appointments, set recurring appointments, and view the schedule in day, week, workweek, and month views. Interactions with the control such as selection and navigation are powered by robust gesture-friendly interface, and the UI also supports localization to make the control accessible to any user base around the world.
This is only a fraction of the new features available to you right now. Dozens of updates have also been released for WPF, Windows Forms, WinRT, and Essential Predictive Analytics.
