Hi Jorge,>Whats the difference between the C1 Xamarin, and the Xamarin that comes with vs2019?
Xamarin that comes with VS2019, is "an open source app platform from Microsoft for building modern & performant iOS and Android apps with C# and .NET". You can read more about it from the following link:
C1Xamarin on the other hand, are a set of UI controls that's offered by GrapeCity for native mobile apps. These controls include charts, grids, gauges, etc. You can read more about C1Xamarin from the following link:
To summarize, Xamarin is a platform and C1Xamarin is a suite of controls that are built for the Xamarin platform by GrapeCity.
As for why c# only and not vb.net, VB.Net is not something that's supported directly by the Xamarin team at Microsoft for Xamarin.Android and iOS projects. Though you should be able to create Xamarin.Forms apps using VB.Net. You can read more about this on the following GitHub issue
