Handling multiple segments

24 Jun 20191 minute to read

The segmented control handles segmented items with space distributed for items in two ways by VisibleSegmentsCount and SegmentWidth. When the available space in the segmented control is not equally distributed, the items beyond the edges of the control can be viewed by scrolling the panel.

Visible segment counts

The segmented control displays items for view based on the count value given for the VisibleSegmentsCount property.

  • c#
  • public override void ViewDidLoad()
        ObservableCollection<string> itemCollection = new ObservableCollection<string>();
        SfSegmentedControl segmentedControl = new SfSegmentedControl();
        segmentedControl.ItemsSource = itemCollection;
        segmentedControl.FontColor = UIColor.Black;
        segmentedControl.Font = UIFont.SystemFontOfSize(15);
        segmentedControl.Frame = new CGRect(100, 40, 230, 40);
        segmentedControl.Color = UIColor.White;
        segmentedControl.CornerRadius = 15;
        segmentedControl.SegmentHeight = 30;
        segmentedControl.SelectedIndex = 2;
        segmentedControl.VisibleSegmentsCount = 2;
        segmentedControl.BorderThickness = 1;
        segmentedControl.BorderColor = UIColor.Black;
        segmentedControl.SelectionTextColor = UIColor.FromRGB(4, 142, 172);

    Segment width

    You can use the SegmentWidth property to display the segmented items within the given width instead of VisibleSegmentsCount.

  • c#
  • segmentedControl.SegmentWidth = 80;
