Xamarin.Forms 4.6.0.616-pre4 (4.6.0 Pre Release 4) Release Notes

Summary

This release continues to improve existing features, while introducing a few significant feature contributions.

App Theme Support (Dark and Light Modes, etc.)

We are now previewing support for different OS level theme modes such as dark and light. To get started, opt-in to the feature using the flag Forms.SetFlags("AppTheme_Experimental");.

For best results at this time, disable XAMLC in your AssemblyInfo.cs and elsewhere.

On styles as well as inline with controls you can use the new OnAppTheme API and markup extension to express different values per mode, and your app will update automatically when the OS preference changes.

Use AppThemeColor:

Define the color in your resources:

<AppThemeColor x:Key="MyColor" Light="HotPink" Dark="Yellow" />

Apply the color to any control:

<Label TextColor="{DynamicResource MyColor}">This text is HotPink or Yellow depending on Light (or default) or Dark (through DynamicResource)</Label>

Using styles:

Define the style in your resources:

<Style x:Key="OSThemeStyle" TargetType="Label" >
    <Setter Property="TextColor" Value="{OnAppTheme Black, Light=Green, Dark=Red}" />
</Style>

Apply the style to the target control(s):

<Label Style="{DynamicResource Key=OSThemeStyle}">This text is green or red depending on Light (or default) or Dark (through style)</Label>

Inline:

<Label TextColor="{OnAppTheme Light=Green, Dark=Red}">This text is green or red depending on Light (or default) or Dark</Label>
<Label>
	<Label.TextColor>
	    <OnAppTheme x:DataType="Color" Light="Green" Dark="Red" />
	</Label.TextColor>
</Label>

From StyleSheet with CSS:

<StyleSheet>
    <StyleSheetExtension.Style>
	<OnAppTheme x:TypeArguments="x:String">
	    <OnAppTheme.Light>
		<![CDATA[
		    #cssStyledLabel {
			color: purple;
		    }
		]]>
	    </OnAppTheme.Light>
	    <OnAppTheme.Dark>
		<![CDATA[
		    #cssStyledLabel {
			color: orange;
		    }
		]]>
	    </OnAppTheme.Dark>
	</OnAppTheme>
    </StyleSheetExtension.Style>
</StyleSheet>

For more examples, check the AppThemeGalleries.

C# Markup Extensions

For developers that prefer to create UI in C#, a set of extension methods have been added to greatly reduce the more verbose aspects.

To get started, in your library project setup an App.cs with:

public class App : Application
{
	public App()
	{
	    Device.SetFlags(new string[] { "Markup_Experimental" });
	    MainPage = new MainPage();
	}
}

In the MainPage.cs you may then start creating your UI. For example, this introduces a Build method convention to set the page content.

public class MainPage : ContentPage
{
    public MainPage() => Build();

    void Build()
    {
        Content = new StackLayout()
        {
            Children = {
                new Label { Text = "Welcome to Xamarin.Forms!" }.CenterExpand()
            }
        };
    }
}

The code above uses the extension method CenterExpand to both center vertically and horizontally within the StackLayout.

RadioButton

This control is just what it sounds like, radio buttons! To group them together, provide a common GroupName.

void Build()
{
    Content = new StackLayout()
    {
        Padding = new Thickness(15),
        Children = {
            new Label {Text = "Choose a color:" }.Bold(),
            new RadioButton
            {
                GroupName = "Colors",
                Text = "Red",
                TextColor = Color.Red
            },
            new RadioButton
            {
                GroupName = "Colors",
                Text = "Green",
                TextColor = Color.Green
            },
            new RadioButton
            {
                GroupName = "Colors",
                Text = "Blue",
                TextColor = Color.Blue
            },
        }
        
    };
}
