Getting started with .NET MAUI Card (SfCard)

18 Jun 20248 minutes to read

This section details the process of integrating the Card control and focuses solely on the fundamental features required for initiating your exploration of Syncfusion Card.

Creating an application using the .NET MAUI Card

  1. Create a new .NET MAUI application in Visual Studio.

  2. Syncfusion .NET MAUI components are available on nuget.org. To add SfCards to your project, open the NuGet package manager in Visual Studio, search for Syncfusion.Maui.Cards, and then install.

  3. To initialize the control, import the control namespace Syncfusion.Maui.Cards in XAML or C# code.

  4. Initialize SfCards.

<ContentPage   
    . . .
    xmlns:cards="clr-namespace:Syncfusion.Maui.Cards;assembly=Syncfusion.Maui.Cards">

<cards:SfCardView>
    <Label Text="CardView" Background="PeachPuff" HorizontalTextAlignment="Center" VerticalTextAlignment="Center"/>
</cards:SfCardView>

</ContentPage>
using Syncfusion.Maui.Cards;
. . .

public partial class MainPage : ContentPage
{
    public MainPage()
    {
        InitializeComponent();
        SfCardView cardView = new SfCardView();

        cardView.Content = new Label()
        {
            Text = "CardView",
            HorizontalTextAlignment = TextAlignment.Center,
            VerticalTextAlignment = TextAlignment.Center,
            BackgroundColor = Colors.PeachPuff
        };
        this.Content = cardView;
    }
}

Register the handler

The Syncfusion.Maui.Core NuGet is a dependent package for all the Syncfusion controls of .NET MAUI. In the MauiProgram.cs file, register the handler for Syncfusion core.

using Syncfusion.Maui.Core.Hosting;
namespace GettingStarted
{
    public static class MauiProgram
    {
        public static MauiApp CreateMauiApp()
        {
            var builder = MauiApp.CreateBuilder();

            builder.ConfigureSyncfusionCore();
            builder
            .UseMauiApp<App>()
            .ConfigureFonts(fonts =>
            {
                fonts.AddFont("OpenSans-Regular.ttf", "OpenSansRegular");
                fonts.AddFont("Segoe-mdl2.ttf", "SegoeMDL2");
            });

            return builder.Build();
        }
    }
}

SwipeToDismiss

The SwipeToDismiss property enables or disables the swiping feature in SfCardView.

<cards:SfCardView SwipeToDismiss="true">
    <Label Text="SfCardView" Background="MediumPurple" HorizontalTextAlignment="Center" VerticalTextAlignment="Center"/>
</cards:SfCardView>
using Syncfusion.Maui.Cards;
. . .

public partial class MainPage : ContentPage
{
    public MainPage()
    {
        InitializeComponent();
        SfCardView cardView = new SfCardView();
        cardView.SwipeToDismiss = true;

        cardView.Content = new Label()
        {
            Text="SfCardView",
            HorizontalTextAlignment = TextAlignment.Center,
            VerticalTextAlignment = TextAlignment.Center,
            BackgroundColor = Colors.MediumPurple
        };
        this.Content = cardView;
    }
}

NOTE

This property will not work when adding the SfCardView as a child of SfCardLayout.

Dismiss the card programmatically

The IsDismissed property enables you to retrieve the view state of the card, and also provides the capability for the user to programmatically modify the card’s view state.

<card:SfCardView IsDismissed="true">
     <Label Text="SfCardView"/>
</card:SfCardView>
using Syncfusion.Maui.Cards;
. . .

public partial class MainPage : ContentPage
{
    public MainPage()
    {
        InitializeComponent();
        SfCardView cardView = new SfCardView();
        cardView.IsDismissed = true;
        cardView.Content = new Label(){ Text="SfCardView" };
        this.Content = cardView;
    }
}

SfCardLayout

Initialize a card layout with a card view using the provided code sample below.

<cards:SfCardLayout HeightRequest="500" BackgroundColor="#F0F0F0">

    <cards:SfCardView CornerRadius="10">
        <Label  Text="Peach" BackgroundColor="PeachPuff" VerticalTextAlignment="Center" HorizontalTextAlignment="Center"/>
    </cards:SfCardView>

    <cards:SfCardView CornerRadius="10">
        <Label  Text="MediumPurple" BackgroundColor="MediumPurple" VerticalTextAlignment="Center" HorizontalTextAlignment="Center"/>
    </cards:SfCardView>

    <cards:SfCardView CornerRadius="10" >
        <Label  Text="LightPink" BackgroundColor="LightPink" VerticalTextAlignment="Center" HorizontalTextAlignment="Center"/>
    </cards:SfCardView>

</cards:SfCardLayout>
using Syncfusion.Maui.Cards;
. . .

public partial class MainPage : ContentPage
{
	public MainPage()
	{
		InitializeComponent();
		SfCardLayout cardLayout = new SfCardLayout();

		//Add children for card layout 
		cardLayout.Children.Add(new SfCardView() { Content = new Label() { Text = "Peach", BackgroundColor = Colors.PeachPuff, HorizontalTextAlignment = TextAlignment.Center, VerticalTextAlignment = TextAlignment.Center }, CornerRadius = 15 });

		cardLayout.Children.Add(new SfCardView() { Content = new Label() { Text = "MediumPurple", BackgroundColor = Colors.MediumPurple, HorizontalTextAlignment = TextAlignment.Center, VerticalTextAlignment = TextAlignment.Center },CornerRadius = 15 });

		cardLayout.Children.Add(new SfCardView() { Content = new Label() { Text = "LightPink", BackgroundColor = Colors.LightPink, HorizontalTextAlignment = TextAlignment.Center, VerticalTextAlignment = TextAlignment.Center },CornerRadius = 15 });

		this.Content = cardLayout;
	}
}
