Has CarouselView been dropped? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User28603 posted

    I've been using CarouselView for a while now but the version has been a pre-release since July 2016. Is this still being maintained or abandoned?

    With the new XF app being created with .Net standard 2.0 instead of PCL the plugin is giving some compatibility issues, plus there are some missing key features and i am wondering if it is a dead end...

    I was also reading this thread: https://github.com/xamarin/Xamarin.Forms/pull/853

    but i am not sure if we are supposed to find a different CarouselView as part of Xamarin Forms out of the box or not. It doesn't seem like so to me though.

    Thanks, I saw that but I went thru the open issues and I didn't want to add more bugs to the app.. Maybe I'll test it on a demo app. But the official from Xamarin seems to be abandoned?

    The link that @AlessandroCaliaro shared is the CarouselView control that is currently being merged into Xamarin.Forms, So it will be the official control. The official forms one is abandoned.

    At dotnetconf David Ortinau demo'd the upcoming CollectionView, which will be able to do carousels by setting the list to horizontal and then turning on snapping: https://github.com/xamarin/Xamarin.Forms/issues/3172

    In the meantime alex rainman's CarouselView is really nice, and there was a request to merge that into the xamarin project: https://github.com/xamarin/Xamarin.Forms/pull/853

    ...but at this point it doesn't sound like this will get merged in, since CollectionView does mostly the same thing:

    "Hi, this feature has been superseded by CollectionView. The collectionview spike branch has carouselview features working already and we are confident now that it will not need to be its own View." https://github.com/xamarin/Xamarin.Forms/pull/1882
