A common user experience for an application is to display a loading (splash) screen while it is initializing. Building our Telerik Next conference application, we wanted to display such a screen. While trivial for iOS, it turned there is no built-in mechanism in Android for achieving this functionality.
Sitefinity CMS is a powerful user-friendly .NET CMS product from Telerik. The great thing about Sitefinity is that it’s meticulously designed to not feel like a .NET CMS (You know the feel I mean…). Moreover you get to choose to develop using Pure Clean MVC, old school ASP.Net WebForms, or a patented hybrid of the two methods.
The last NativeScript webinar had a record-setting number of attendees. As such, we also had a record-setting 1000+ questions asked during the webinar!! Now, as you can guess we could not answer 1000+ questions in a couple of minutes at the end of the webinar.
So, we read all 1000+ questions post-webinar and select a handful of them to be answer in this blog post. After reading the questions, I believe many of them will be beneficial to the entire NativeScript community and not just the individual that posted the question during the live webinar.
Saving user settings a device’s local storage is a common requirement for mobile applications. Because of that, we made the creation of a settings page with NativeScript straightforward. In this blog post you’ll learn how to build a settings page using the latest bits of NativeScript—XML declaration, data-binding, and CSS styling.
We know how important it is for a new framework to have samples, so you will be able to find several good examples of open source applications built with NativeScript in our Github organization. Open http://github.com/nativescript and search for repositories named after the following pattern "sample-SAMPLE_NAME". All the samples are licensed under the BSD license.
This is the first article from a series of articles we are planning to release as we progress with the application implementation. The full source code of the application is here: http://github.com/nativescript/sample-Tasks.
