    Hello Shiv,

    Thank you for contacting Infragistics.

    First I recommend visiting the developer page at developer.android.com

    If you are interested in developing with our components, then I recommend reading the following blog: Xamarin: Going Native for Mobile Developers

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    n the Layout Editor, you can quickly build layouts by dragging UI elements into a visual design editor instead of writing the layout XML by hand. The design editor can preview your layout on different Android devices and versions, and you can dynamically resize the layout to be sure it works well on different screen sizes.

    The Layout Editor is especially powerful when building a new layout withConstraintLayout—a layout manager provided in a support library that's compatible with Android 2.3 (API level 9) and higher.

    Introduction to the Layout Editor

    The Layout Editor appears when you open an XML layout file.

    Corresponding to the numbers in figure 1, the regions of the editor are as follows:

    1. Palette: List of views and view groups that you can drag into your layout.
    2. Component Tree: View hierarchy for your layout.
    3. Toolbar: Buttons to configure your layout appearance in the editor and to change some layout attributes.
    4. Design editor: Layout in Design or Blueprint view, or both.
    5. Attributes: Controls for the selected view's attributes.
