  • Mar 23, 2016

PITTSBURGH, PA – March 24, 2016 – GrapeCity, the largest component solution provider in the Microsoft Visual Studio Partner Ecosystem, today announced the 2016 v1 release of Xuni. Xuni is GrapeCity's collection of cross-platform UI controls for iOS, Android and Xamarin Platform. Each new control or feature of the 2016 v1 release delivers new functionality and helps improve the mobile experience.

“As always, everything new in this release is supported in all the Xuni platforms: iOS, Android, Xamarin.Forms, Xamarin.Android, and Xamarin.iOS,” said Greg Lutz, product manager at GrapeCity. Developers choose Xuni controls when they need to provide native experiences in Android, iOS and Xamarin using the same API across all platforms.

The new Xuni Calendar control inside of Xuni 2016 v1 provides date range selection and navigation, along with smooth animation and built-in globalization. What makes Xuni Calendar unique is that developers can match any popular calendar UI with either horizontal or vertical scrolling navigation. As detailed in the blog post, “Xuni 2016 v1 Release – See what’s New,” the Xuni team details that they designed calendar with both end-users and developers in mind.

Supported on iOS, Android, Xamarin.iOS, Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.Forms, Xuni’s FlexGrid is a powerful datagrid control that brings a spreadsheet-like experience to mobile apps, with intuitive touch gestures and quick-cell editing capabilities. The 2016 v1 enhancements to the FlexGrid control include cell merging, row details, unbound support, and enhanced touch feedback, improving readability and flexibility, and providing an improved interactive experience.

Additional controls in the Xuni collection include, FlexChart, a flexible Cartesian chart control, FlexPie, for creating dynamic pie charts, and three gauge controls: Radial, Linear, and BulletGraph. For developers looking for data binding, Xuni offers a powerful data binding component with Xuni CollectionView. It's based off the .NET implementation, which makes it familiar to a large audience of developers. CollectionView provides currency, filtering, grouping and sorting services for data collection.

Following this release, the company will be exhibiting at Xamarin’ s Evolve Conference https://evolve.xamarin.com/ April 24-28, in Orlando, FL. Show attendees are encouraged to visit the Xuni booth to meet the team and learn about how to leverage the high-quality controls in Xuni to target enterprise-level application development.
