The Button class is used to represent various different styles of button in Android screens. This section introduces the different options for working with buttons in Xamarin.Android:

  • RadioButton allows the user to select one option from a set.

  • ToggleButton allow the user to flip (toggle) a setting between two states.

  • CheckBox is a special type of button that can be either checked or unchecked to indicate one of two possible states.

  • You can also create a custom button that uses an image instead of text.
