loading several bitmaps in memory is best left to the OS
especially if there is a desire to have like 100 stickers
that might be several hundred MBs
Thanks for the tips and ideas. Now it's time for sleep. This project is very interesting for us, and I hope that we will find a better way soon
If you have any other ideas, please write . I will definitely read them.
should a collectionview work using a contentpage as datatemplate?
is there anything like "Flyout" of UWP in xamarin forms ???
Is it possible to position a Shell.FlyoutItem at the bottom of the Flyout Menu. For example I want my Settings items to be at the bottom of the flyout rather than the next in the list of flyout items.
Use a MenuItem and place it at the bottom of the shell
@PureWeen I thought I tried that but it didn't seem to work for me. Will take another look maybe I missed something. Thanks.
@PureWeen I've had another look and still not sure MenuItem will work. I have 7 items in my Shell.Flyout and these are listed at the top one after each other as expected. I then want a gap down to the Settings item that will be locked to the bottom of the Flyout menu. I am sure it can be done as I as sure I've seen it.
Yea there's ongoing work for a footer that I'll hopefully get to include with 4.6
Hello, I wanted to use CarouselView in order to display some images and I am having some issues with it. Been trying to sort it out for a few hours now but can't find anything regarding the issue.
As much as I love skia I think that would be the right choice here for now
SkiaSharp is the greatest! But, with great power comes great responsibility. If you can't handle it, then "go native" :wink: No, but @Redth is right, in many cases, the native is enough - the whole reason NGraphics exists. SkiaSharp is more for additional features and pixel perfection
The thing is it has weight (size)
And it feels wrong to impress that size upon an app to draw an oval
If it was a render the whole forms ui situation then absolutely yes

SkiaSharp is amazing and would allow to cover cases like Shapes in a very solid way, but yes, in this case we would add the SkiaSharp dependencies (size) to just paint a circle...
One option we're discussing is making the renderer pluggable, where the user can pick. That way basic shapes can be supported on Android and iOS via native, avoiding a heavy weight SkiaSharp dependency. But more advanced features & non-mobile platforms may require Skia. Skia also gives pixel perfect consistency & (might) perform better. We're getting some more customer input here too, which could help in settling on an approach.
The Forms Carousel View does anyone know if the TapGestures work? I'm struggling to get it working and wondering if it's been implemented as it's still experimental.
