Using a Xamarin Forms Designer with Visual Studio

Why not use the most powerful tools in mobile design to design your next mobile app?!  Our Xamarin Forms Designer writes the code for you in Visual Studio!

Getting Started with Xamarin Forms Designer

Being able to design and build mobile apps without typing a single line of code is just one of the many things that make Designer Trak great!

We have multiple How-To videos on the great functions our designer for Xamarin Forms will do.

Grids are Great!

Grids come in all shapes and sizes. Along with grids come column sizing options. Using Xamarin Forms, column size options come in Auto, Pixel and Star *

Let’s talk about them.

Grid columns that are on Auto take up the space needed for the largest item in that column.

Grid columns that are a certain Pixel size are the column width of the number of pixels selected.

Grid columns sized by star sized, that star means portion size – as the page takes up all the mobile screen space available, each star is like a portion of the available space.  In the below example, each of the columns have 1* worth of space, so they’re all equal.

In the next image, uses Star for the column settings and this shows how the column sizes change based on the number of * in each column.

Column sizes can be changed around based on what needs each page has.

Designer Trak for Xamarin Forms allows for grids within grids while designing your next mobile app!

We can hardly wait to share this with all the Xamarin Forms designers and developers!

Why Do We Love Xamarin Forms?

Why not Xamarin Forms?

  • Because some developers prefer to reinvent the wheel by developing their apps individually in each mobile platform.
  • Some developers prefer to spend three to four times the budget to develop an app.
  • Some development houses prefer to have several development and support teams for each platform instead of one.

Could we be referring to your style of development? Are you looking for ways to help meet your next development timeline as well as budget?

What could make Xamarin Forms development a whole lot better?

A true WYSIWYG Designer maybe?

Could it be true?  Is there one out there?

<psst stay tuned, there will be one very, very soon>
