Step 3: Implementation of Master Details Page using Xamarin Community Toolkit.

    In this step, we will see how to implement the Implementation of Master Details Page using Xamarin Community Toolkit in XAML. We have expalined the steps below.

  • Open your XAML design file and add the following namespace to utilise the views in the screen.
    xmlns:xct="http://xamarin.com/schemas/2020/toolkit"
  • SideMenuView
    1. Basically, SideMenuView can be added as a child to any layout (e.g. you can put SideMenuView inside StackLayout or even make every item view in CollectionView be SideMenuView as well) or into ContentPage as the root view.
    2. Here, three views inside the SideMenuView. These views represent the Main View, the Left Menu, the Right Menu. This can be determined by using "SideMenuView.Position" property.
    3. SideMenuView.MenuWidthPercentage attached property for determining side menu's size.
    <xct:SideMenuView x:Name="SideMenu">
    	<!--MainView-->
    	<AbsoluteLayout BackgroundColor="White">
    
    		<StackLayout AbsoluteLayout.LayoutFlags="All"
    			AbsoluteLayout.LayoutBounds="0, 0, 1, 1"
    				   VerticalOptions="Center"
    				   HorizontalOptions="Center">
    
    			<Frame BackgroundColor="#2196F3" Padding="24" CornerRadius="0">
    				<Label Text="Master Detail Page using XCT" 
    					   HorizontalTextAlignment="Center" TextColor="White" FontSize="36"/>
    			</Frame>
    
    			<Label Text="<-- Swipe Left or Right -->"
    				   TextColor="Black"
    				   VerticalOptions="Center"
    				   HorizontalOptions="Center"
    				   FontSize="20"/>
    
    		</StackLayout>
    
    		<StackLayout Orientation="Horizontal"
    					 Padding="15, 10"
    					 AbsoluteLayout.LayoutFlags="WidthProportional"
    					 AbsoluteLayout.LayoutBounds="0, 0, 1, -1">
    			<Button Text="|||"
    					TextColor="White"
    					BackgroundColor="#2196F3"
    					WidthRequest="40"
    					FontSize="20"
    					VerticalOptions="Center"
    					Clicked="OnLeftButtonClicked"/>
    			<Button Text="|||"
    					BackgroundColor="#2196F3"
    					TextColor="White"
    					WidthRequest="40"
    					VerticalOptions="Center"
    					FontSize="20"
    					HorizontalOptions="EndAndExpand"
    					Clicked="OnRightButtonClicked" />
    		</StackLayout>
    	</AbsoluteLayout>
    
    	<!--LeftMenu-->
    	<ScrollView xct:SideMenuView.Position="LeftMenu"
    				xct:SideMenuView.MenuWidthPercentage="0.5"
    				BackgroundColor="Orange">
    		<StackLayout HeightRequest="2000">
    			<Button Text="TO RIGHT" FontSize="25" Clicked="OnRightButtonClicked" />
    		</StackLayout>
    	</ScrollView>
    
    	<!--RightMenu-->
    	<ScrollView xct:SideMenuView.Position="RightMenu"
    				xct:SideMenuView.MenuWidthPercentage="0.35"
    				BackgroundColor="Gold">
    		<StackLayout HeightRequest="2000">
    			<Button Text="TO LEFT" FontSize="25" Clicked="OnLeftButtonClicked" />
    		</StackLayout>
    	</ScrollView>
    
    </xct:SideMenuView>
  • Opening the side menu from right or left can be controlled by the State property of the SideMenuView.
    SideMenu.State = SideMenuState.LeftMenuShown; (or SideMenuState.RightMenuShown;)
