How to build those contorls? (3 type of controls)

AbaevDavidAbaevDavid USMember ✭✭

Hi guys. Im pretty new in Xamarin.

So i need to build a few pages, and i have a problem with understanding - how to build some controls.

1) Elements for list view. This is how i need to show result of search, or items (like store items)
If I need to use grid? Or cells? - I just dont know(((
(Or maybe Frame - because here I need rounded corners???)

2) Second is Button
Here is Image on left side and text -- this feature supported in standart button. But i need arrow on the right side

  • I need rounder corners.
  • (Its can be top corners, or bottom corners, or both of them)

And this is simple form for user.
Laso Rounded corners on top and bot elements.

Guys please help me.

Thank you.

    @AbaevDavid you can check renderers or do a trick
    Put you frame into any layout. Set IsClippedToBounds = true and shift your frame a little to bottom (TranslationY = 3)

    But i suggest to check renderers. Also you can achieve it with Image (AbsoluteLayout + Image as first child)

            if(e.PropertyName == "Type")
                MyButton elem = (MyButton)Element;
                if(elem != null)
                    SetNeedsDisplay();  //<<<====== THIS IS NOT HELPED (this call draw method but not refresh  how button is displayed
        public override void Draw(CGRect rect)
            MyButton stack = (MyButton)Element;
            CGColor startColor = stack.StartColor.ToCGColor();
            CGColor endColor = stack.EndColor.ToCGColor();
            CAGradientLayer gradientLayer = new CAGradientLayer()
                StartPoint = new CGPoint(0, 0.5),
                EndPoint = new CGPoint(1, 0.5)
            gradientLayer.CornerRadius = 6;
            gradientLayer.Frame = rect;
            gradientLayer.Colors = new CGColor[] { startColor, endColor };
            NativeView.Layer.InsertSublayer(gradientLayer, 0);
    //here a also tried something like:    NativeView.Layer.Sublayers[0] = gradientLayer; etc....
