Using the IndicatorView in Xamarin Forms

4 hours ago | Telerik

IndicatorView teams up with CarouselView to let users know which slide of a carousel they’re on. Today let’s learn how to use this tool! One way to make our applications more fun and at the same time display more information without needing additional space is when we present it on the same page in a carousel. The user experience in this case would be much better if we add positioning indicators to it.

Introduction to .NET MAUI Blazor | The Xamarin Show

20 hours ago | The Xamarin Show

Blazor enables building client-side web UI with .NET, but sometimes you need more than what the web platform offers. Sometimes you need full access to the native capabilities of the device. You can now host Blazor components in .NET MAUI apps to build cross-platform native apps using web UI. The components run natively in the .NET process and render web UI to an embedded web view control using a local interop channel.

So if you are interested in OAuth and Xamarin, you might also be interested in my blog posts on getting started, setting up an IdentityServer for your mobile app and refreshing your tokens.

Using OIDC client in Xamarin Forms to refresh your access token

24 days ago | Mark Allibone

So you decided to take use OpenIdentity Connect / OAuth for authenticating your users in your Xamarin app. The great thing is that your client application will never see or process the username and password, which reduces the possible attack vector. Instead, all your app ever receives is an access token that grants to access APIs that require authenticated users. But there is a minor caveat. The access token often is only valid for a short time.
