Xamarin Forms Carousel View in C#

I'm trying to create a Xamarin Forms app for iOS using a Carousel view but i'm getting no where and I can't seem to find any useful help.
I can use C# and have a fairly good knowledge of C# but I can't seem to find anything useful.
Everythig i'm seeing is using XAML code which i'm not familiar with.

If someone could provide a very simple project of a Carousel page written in C# that would be a massive help
As would anyother information on Carousel pages.

    My two cents worth - Get up to speed on XAML. Building UI in C# is generally considered bad out in the real world of development. WPF developers have been building UI in XAML for a decade. So any company looking for XAML/Xamarin development would expect you to build your UI in XAML. In the XML editor, not any kind of drag-n-drop.

    That's just the reality of employment expectations, so you might as well jump on board the XAML train now.

    I prefer the whole layout of C#, we layout it out differently, nothing is untidy and there aren't { } at the end of every line.
    I'd prefer to carry on with C# moreso than anything as this is just an interest for me and the code to use is only for me and my friend.
    But I appreciate your help and information!

    CarouselView cv = new CarouselView();
    cv.ItemTemplate = GetDataTemplate();
    cv.ItemsSource = graphList;

    Graph List will be a list of views. For example images. This is the GetDataTemplate method

    public DataTemplate GetDataTemplate()
                return new DataTemplate(() =>
                    View v = graphList[Count].view;
                    return v;

    Count starts at 0, You should be able to take it from there

    @Logu yeah it's possible to add images in carouselview...........

  • LoguLogu INUniversity ✭✭

    @Vaka.GopiNadhReddy Can you please add some images and send sample. it would be more helpful. Thanks in advance.

    @Logu Maybe the following sample helps with adding images (which are embedded resources here).

    public class PageCarouselView : ContentPage
            public class CarouselItem
                public ImageSource Picture {get; set;}
            public PageCarouselView()
                ObservableCollection<CarouselItem> pictures = new ObservableCollection<CarouselItem>();
                pictures.Add(new CarouselItem { Picture = ImageSource.FromResource("xxx.yyy1.jpg") });
                pictures.Add(new CarouselItem { Picture = ImageSource.FromResource("xxx.yyy2.jpg") });
                pictures.Add(new CarouselItem { Picture = ImageSource.FromResource("xxx.yyy3.jpg") });
                DataTemplate template = new DataTemplate(() =>
                    Image image = new Image();
                    return image;
                CarouselView carouselview = new CarouselView()
                    ItemsSource = pictures,
                    ItemTemplate = template
                Content = carouselview;

    Hi) I propose to check this package.
    It's not carousel, but it's something very similar with carousel.
