Take a look at popular mobile applications such as Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. They all have one thing in common. The focus of the UI is a list of data items, but they all have customized styles and layouts. In this course, Creating List-based Screens in Xamarin.Forms, you’ll learn how to build data-driven mobile UIs with flexible and aesthetic layouts. First, you’ll explore the three types of list-based controls, the ListView, CollectionView, and TableView. Then, you'll discover how to craft the UI and how to respond to user touches. Next, you’ll delve into styling, resources, and techniques to easily create a consistent look across your application. Finally, you’ll learn how to harness the power of data binding with value converters and Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM). When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of list-based screens in Xamarin.Forms needed to quickly develop data-driven applications with only one codebase.

Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Douglas Starr, and welcome to my force treating list based screens exam and forms. I'm an independent author and speaker. One common feature of many mobile applications is the display of lists or collections of data. Different platforms have different AP, eyes, tools and languages to accomplish this, and that's where Sam reforms comes in. In this course, you're going to learn how to display such data in APS targeting more than one platform with only a single code base. Some of the major topics that we will cover include the basics of list views, flexible layouts of the collection views, static data using table views, making the best use of resource and styles and the details of data binding. By the end of this course, you'll know how to display data inflexible and aesthetic user interfaces without wasting a lot of time reinventing the wheel for each platform. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the basics of Zama informs Zamel C Sharp and Visual studio on Windows. Users of visual studio on Mac will be able to use the same code and concepts. The idea E will just look slightly different from the demos. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn data driven mobile laps with the creating list based screens exam or informs course at Pluralsight.
