In the last few days, I was working on some improvements for my WordPressReader (Standard) library. I am happy to announce that an update to version 1.2.0 is now available.
In this post I am showing you how to securely create a key pair for asymmetric encryption in your Xamarin Android app, without any user interaction needed and – more important – without any hardcoded values in your code.
If we want to display some text in our Xamarin.Forms app, chances are high we are going to use the Label control. But what if we want to limit the maximum visible lines of such a Label? This is what this #XfQaD is about.
With this post, I am happy to announce my new WordPressReader (Standard) library is now available on Nuget.
In this second #XFQaD I am showing how to read your applications’s package identity as well as the package version using their dedicated native implementations for that task.
In this first post of my new #XfQaD series I am showing a “Quick-and-Dirty” solution to bring the UWP ProgressRing into a Xamarin.Forms project while keeping the default ActivityIndicator for all other platforms.
2017 is slowly coming to an end, which means it’s time for my traditional review of the passed year.
A common practice is bundling resource files like images or other files and ship them with the application. Apps written with Xamarin.Forms make no difference here. This post is showing a simple way to access those bundled resources/assets from within the Xamarin.Forms project.
Xamarin Forms 2.5 introduced a bug that prevents resource declaration in App.xaml like many of us are used to. This post shows a possible workaround.
In this post of my ongoing series about using MVVMLight with Xamarin Forms, I am going to show you an easy way to take control over the back button behavior that requires only a few lines of code.
