What's New in this Release

FlexLayout

FlexLayout introduces a new layout for Xamarin.Forms that is optimized for UI that prioritizes distribution and the ability to adapt to various screen sizes and dimensions. FlexLayout also promotes a flatter UI hierachy, a best practice for creating performant interfaces.

ResourceDictionary Improvements

ResourceDictionary has received additional improvements on the heels of the merged dictionary support we added in 2.5.0. A few examples, you can now load resource dictionaries from XAML files without a partial class, and you can use a less verbose syntax to represent merged dictionaries by omitting the wrapping <ResourceDictionary></ResourceDictionary> tags.

Right to Left Support

To make it easier to support right-to-left languages in Xamarin.Forms, we have introduced a new FlowDirection property on layouts and text controls. This works in harmony with the existing right-to-left support in the underlying Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS applications.

StyleSheets

Xamarin.Forms now supports expressing your Styles using CSS. These are the exact same styling APIs you use today in XAML and C#, so it is a productivity compliment to those methods and not a replacement. CSS may be loaded into a StyleSheet from a separate CSS file, or defined in the Resources of your page.

Visual State Manager

Xamarin.Forms now supports using VisualStateManager to handle the different states of your controls. These may be declared in XAML or CS.

⚠️

Build Task Dependency Update

Xamarin.Forms 3.0 uses the lastest benefits of .NET Standard 2.0. To build applications with Xamarin.Forms 3.0, update your build machines to .NET 4.7.1 or greater using the Visual Studio installer. If you do not, build tasks will fail with messages like The "Xamarin.Forms.Build.Tasks.GetTasksAbi" task could not be loaded from the assembly C:\YourFolderPath\xamarin.forms\3.0.0.446417\build\netstandard2.0\Xamarin.Forms.Build.Tasks.dll. Could not load file or assembly 'netstandard, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=cc7b13ffcd2ddd51' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

Breaking Changes

  • [Android] For API >=17, we now set the TextAlignment instead of the Gravity of the EditText when we change the HorizontalTextAlignment property. (#1222)
  • UWP requires Fall Creator's Update (#1306)
  • Removed Windows Phone 8 and 8.1 (#1267)
  • When IsSpellCheckEnabled is set to false (default is true) and no CustomKeyboard is in use the native spell checker feature will be disabled. This means that CustomKeyboard always has precedence. If a Keyboard has been set which disables spell checking, e.g. Keyboard.Chat, the IsSpellCheckEnabled property is ignored. The property cannot be used to enable spell checking for a Keyboard which explicitly disables it. (#1836)
  • According to #1691 the default for spell check enabled is set to false. This change set the same default for AutoSuggestBox control template meaning that the native UWP TextBox used by AutoSuggestBox will get a default value of false. This is inline with Win8 defaults of TextBox, but on Win10 the default value for IsSpellCheckEnabled on TextBox is true, see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/uwp/api/windows.ui.xaml.controls.textbox#WindowsUIXamlControlsTextBox_IsSpellCheckEnabled. If apps rely on the default behavior on Win10 then this fix will disable the spell check by default changing that behavior. In order to get back spell checking on a SearchBox instance, user needs to call one of: SearchBar.On<Windows>().SetSpellCheckEnabled(true); SearchBar.On<Windows>().EnableSpellCheck(); (#1824)
  • xbuild doesn't see SAP projects the same way msbuild does. Projects using xbuild are therefore no longer supported. (#940) (#1202)
  • UWP ActionSheet can be dismissed without selecting an option; however, this brings the behavior inline with previous Windows versions. (#881)
  • [UWP] The Z-Index on all controls is no longer automatically set to the layout order. The default Z-index is left alone. Code relying on all children controls to have the Z-Index set to a value from 1 to N may run into issues (#1196)
  • UWP Alert box now uses AlertDialog subclass of ContentDialog. Github #2355 - "[UWP] AlertView doesn't scroll when text is to large" (#2506) (added in 3.0.0.482510 (3.0.0 Service Release 1))
