Customizing the row template
Xamarin.Forms has four built-in cell types:
EntryCell– a cell with a Label and a single-line text Entry field
SwitchCell– a cell with a Label and an on/off switch
TextCell– a cell with primary and secondary text
ImageCell– a cell that also includes an image
But this is not enough for every case that you need, or sometimes will not provide you with a nice result. Xamarin.Forms has another type,
ViewCell, that you can use to customize the layout as desired.
You are welcome to extend any of these types to introduce custom functionality.
How to do it…
- In Visual Studio, go to the top menu and select File | New | Project. Choose the Blank App (Xamarin.Forms Portable) template, name it
XamFormsCustomizingRows, and click OK.
