Implement elementary controls in Xamarin.Forms
This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
Xamarin.Forms is missing some basic controls and functionality.
Here are some:
- ItemsControl (like WPF)
- Horizontal ListView
I don't want to go any further, and only want to cover the very basic ones.
XF's (IMHO unjustified) agenda is to implement only controls that are natively implemented in all 3 platforms (UWP, Android, iOS).
These elementary controls should be implemented constructed to as natively as possible, but HAS to be there.
Xamarin must make exceptions to this crazy agenda.
And a WPF-like `ViewBox` that auto-sizes content. This is used extensively in WPF applications for things like autosizing text to fit the available real estate.
