Grial UI Kit 4 released, new features in version 4
The Grial UI Kit provides a set of XAML UI pages, templates, controls, and helpers for Xamarin. Forms and Microsoft NET MAUI。 These cover the most typical mobile UI patterns, which are carefully designed by developers for developers. Based on the Model View View Model (MVVM) pattern, Grial ensures a clear separation between UI and view models through data binding. Grial is framework agnostic, so you can choose any MVVM framework that you feel comfortable with. The Grial UI Kit allows you to focus on business logic and almost forget the UI. It supports NET MAUI and the latest Xamarin. Form and target Android and Apple iOS platforms.

Grid Floating Menu – New floating buttons that you can place anywhere on the screen to display important actions on a specific screen. This control is very similar to the floating action button (FAB) in Android’s Material design system.

Rating Controls – Fully customizable controls provide an ultra fast and easy way to gather feedback from anywhere in the application.
Grial XAML Expressions – XAML code is more powerful than ever. Using Grial’s XAML expressions, you can maintain UI logic in the UI. Gone are the days of superspecific converters or cluttered view model code with UI specific properties.
New templates – more pages have been added to the already complete. NET MAUI and Xamarin. Forms directories.
More themes and styles – 6 basic themes have been added.
Icon Button – Adds an icon button to the application. Select the icon type, location, and alignment color. No custom renderer is required.
