Introduction

Welcome to the official documentation of Progress NativeScript UI

What is Progress NativeScript UI

Progress NativeScript UI is a set of components that enable implementing rich-ui applications for iOS and Android by using NativeScript. Progress NativeScript UI is built on top of natively implemented components targeting iOS and Android.

Progress NativeScript UI contains the following components:

  • Calendar: A calendar component that offers different view modes, animations, great performance and customization options.
  • Chart: A versatile charting component that supports all major Cartesian series types, as well as Pie and Donut series.
  • ListView: A powerful data list control implementing a bunch of features native to the mobile world as item animations, pull-to-refresh, item layouts, load-on-demand, swipe-to-execute, etc.
  • DataForm: A component that helps you edit the properties of a business object during runtime and build a mobile form fast and easy.
  • SideDrawer: A customizable container component that can be used to implement a hidden view containing navigation UI or common settings – a pattern extremely popular with the best iOS and Android applications.
  • Gauges: A customizable component that allows you to show the current status of a value within a range of upper and lower bounds, illustrate progress towards a goal or a summary of a fluctuating metric.
  • AutoCompleteTextView: An extended Text View that can automatically complete user input string by comparing the text being entered to all strings in the associated data source.

How is Progress NativeScript UI distributed

Progress NativeScript UI is distributed via npm. You may download the package and view the readme at https://www.npmjs.com/package/nativescript-pro-ui

For more information about how to install the package in a NativeScript application, take a look at the Getting Started article.

Note that we are in the process of updating the documentation content and the SDK sample apps to target the new free plugin. Any source snippet using the old nativescript-telerik-ui-pro will work as expected by also importing nativescript-pro-ui if the free plugin is installed. You can read more about this in the Migrating to the Free Plugin article.
