In today’s article, I will discuss some of the essential improvements of Prism 7 for Xamarin as well as the minimum steps to get you up and running using Prism 7 in Xamarin forms, so let’s get started.
.NET Standard Support
The long awaited .NET support for prism has arrived. It was during the 6.3 version days that I was having some problems with PCL projects wherein the more profiles that you select the less .NET APIs you can use but nevertheless .NET Standard will save the day.
In today’s article, I will discuss how to use the File System of Xamarin forms in data storage. File System storage is a great option for you if you want to store a more larger data in the file system, maybe in the form of XML or JSON file, if Preference storage is not enough for you and Database is an overkill for you.
In today’s article, I will discuss how to use the Preference in storing data. Preference is one of the different data storage strategies that Xamarin provides. It is primarily used to store small amount of data like user settings of your Mobile Application. The preference is a key value pair structure where it can only cater to simple or intrinsic data types (e.g. strings, int, bool).
For the last part of this Getting started Xamarin with Prism series, I would like to discuss about using Messaging in Xamarin forms. We will use our previous project from ourPart3of the getting started series and here is the link for the Repository:https://github.com/KirkPatrickJunsay/XamarinPrismSample
For the third part of this Getting started Xamarin with Prism series, I would like to discuss about using Navigation in Xamarin forms. We will use our previous project from our Part2 of the getting started series and here is the link for the Repository:https://github.com/KirkPatrickJunsay/XamarinPrismSample
For the second part of this Getting started Xamarin with Prism series, I would like to discuss on how to use Command in Xamarin forms. By the way if you missed the Part 1 of this series you can check this article.
When you say Command, for example in Win Forms it’s just an event that was fired due to let’s say a button click or an event brought by textbox lost/on focus but in Xamarin Commands are just methods that are directly binded from your view e.g. (Button, MenuItem, ToolbarItem) and executes the binded method in your ViewModel.
In today’s article I will discuss about the basic requirements you need to perform for running Xamarin Forms with Prism 6 framework. So what is Prism by the way, Prism is a framework which originated as a XAML application framework mainly during the early days of WPF. It was previously maintained by the Patterns and Practices division of Microsoft prior to becoming an open source platform. Here are the following features we can get for implementing Prism in our Xamarin forms:
