UpDown Button in .NET MAUI NumericEntry

This section describes how to change the value in the NumericEntry control using keys, mouse scrolling, and the up-down button

Increase or decrease value

You can increment or decrement the value in the NumericEntry control using the UpArrow, DownArrow, PageUp, and PageDown keys. You can change the increment or decrement value when the Arrow keys are pressed using the SmallChange property and Page keys using the LargeChange property. By default, the value of the SmallChange property is 1, and the LargeChange property is 10.

                        VerticalOptions="Center" 
                        SmallChange="5"
                        Value="10"
                        LargeChange="10" />
SfNumericEntry sfNumericEntry= new SfNumericEntry();
sfNumericEntry.Value=10;
sfNumericEntry.SmallChange=5;

Auto reverse in SfNumericEntry

Auto-reverse in NumericEntry allows the control to automatically switch direction when reaching its Minimum or Maximum value. When incrementing, it starts at the Minimum and progresses to the Maximum, and conversely.

NOTE

The default value of this property is false.

<editors:SfNumericEntry UpDownPlacementMode="Inline"
                        AutoReverse="True"
                        Minimum="0"
                        Maximum="10"/>
SfNumericEntry sfNumericEntry = new SfNumericEntry();
sfNumericEntry.UpDownPlacementMode = NumericEntryUpDownPlacementMode.Inline;
sfNumericEntry.AutoReverse = true;
sfNumericEntry.Minimum=0;
sfNumericEntry.Maximum=10;
