What Is Constraint Layout?

Constraint helps to reduce the hierarchy of Views and increase the layout performance and flexibility of Views. It helps to design based on positing, size, dimension, and alignment of different Views. Constraint Layout has different attributes to set Views in the layout. You can set the View of any position of the layout easily, rather than that in Relative Layout. It supports Android and iOS platforms. Constraint layout comes under ViewGroup.

Some Important Constraint Layout Properties and Attributes

These attributes take only id or parent. Align view from any side of the target view.,

  • layout_constraintLeft_toLeftOf - align left of the desired view is left of the target view.
  • layout_constraintLeft_toRightOf - align left of the desired view is right of the target view.
  • layout_constraintRight_toLeftOf - align-right of the desired view is left of the target view.
  • layout_constraintRight_toRightOf - align-right of the desired view is right of the target view.
  • layout_constraintTop_toTopOf - align the top of the desired view is top of the target view.
  • layout_constraintTop_toBottomOf - align the top of the desired view is the bottom of the target view.
  • layout_constraintBottom_toTopOf - align the bottom of the desired view is top of the target view.
  • layout_constraintBottom_toBottomOf - align the bottom of the desired view is the bottom of the target view.
  • layout_constraintBaseline_toBaselineOf - align the baseline of the desired view is the baseline of the target view.
  • layout_constraintStart_toEndOf - align the start of the desired view is the end of the target view.
  • layout_constraintStart_toStartOf - align the start of the desired view is the start of the target view.
  • layout_constraintEnd_toStartOf - align the end of the desired view is the start of the target view.
  • layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf - align the end of the desired view is the end of the target view.

Margin Attributes - These attributes take only positive values.

  • layout_marginStart - Margin from start side of the desired view.
  • layout_marginEnd - Margin from the end side of the desired view.
  • layout_marginLeft - Margin from the left side of the desired view.
  • layout_marginTop - Margin from the top side of the desired view.
  • layout_marginRight - Margin from the right side of the desired view.
  • layout_marginBottom - Margin from the bottom side of the desired view.

Let's see how to use Constraint Layout to design or align views in Xamarin.Android.

There is no default package for constraint layout in Xamarin.Android. So, we need to install a plugin for this.

Installing a plugin for constraint layout

Follow these steps to archive the above view using Constraint Layout.


Let’s start.

Step 1 — Create a New Project

You can create a Xamarin Android app by going to File >> New >> Android under select App. In the General section, select Android App. Then, click Next.

In the new window, enter and select your application name, theme, and compatibility. Then, click Create project.

Step 2 — Add Constraint Layout Plugin

After project creation add the following NuGet package to your project

For that, right-click packages and select Add packages. A new dialog will appear. At the right-top corner, search for “Xamarin.Android.Support.Constraint.Layout” and click the Add Packages button.

Step 3 — Design Instruction

Now, design the Signup page. For that, go to Solution Explorer >> Resource >> layout >> double click to open content_main.xml. First, we need to set the root of the layout as a Constraint layout and declare the app namespace.

<android.support.constraint.ConstraintLayout      
        xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"      
        xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"      
        xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"      
        android:id="@+id/container"      
        android:background="@drawable/gradientcolor_rose"      
        android:layout_width="match_parent"      
        android:layout_height="match_parent"      
        android:paddingBottom="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"      
        android:paddingLeft="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"      
        android:paddingRight="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"      
        android:paddingTop="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"      
        android:hapticFeedbackEnabled="false">      
</android.support.constraint.ConstraintLayout >  


Now, start your design. Set the image button in the left top corner of the page. The Constraint attribute below is used to set the image button based on parent view.

app:layout_constraintLeft_toLeftOf = “parent”    
app:layout_constraintTop_toTopOf = “parent”

Logo Image

This view is set by the right of the image button and center of the parent. The top, end, and start attribute of the image is set based on the parent view and another attribute is set based on another view id.

app:layout_constraintTop_toTopOf="parent"  
app:layout_constraintStart_toEndOf="@+id/imageView2"  
app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent"  
app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent"  


Text View

This view is set below the image and to the left side of the parent. The below constraint attributes are used to set the text in the correct position. The first left attribute is set based on the parent but other attributes are set by different id.

app:layout_constraintLeft_toLeftOf="parent"  
app:layout_constraintTop_toBottomOf="@+id/imageView"  
app:layout_constraintBottom_toTopOf="@+id/txtFirstName"  


You can also set other child views using different attributes.

Step 4 — Login Page Design

Now, let us design the Login Page. For that, go to Solution Explorer >> Resource >> layout. Then, double-click to open  login_activity.xml. The code is given below:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

        app:fabSize="normal"/>    
</android.support.constraint.ConstraintLayout>   


Step 5 — Signup Page Design

Now, we create a background color for the Signup page, named  grandientcolor_rose.xml. Add a new XML page by right-clicking the drawable folder and selecting Add new File >> Left bar select Android >> next. Then, select XML file and enter the grandientcolor_rose.xml. Copy and paste the below code.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

        android:layout_width="match_parent"    
        android:layout_height="match_parent"    
        android:paddingBottom="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"

Step 6 - MainActivity.cs Code

Next, open MainActivity.cs (Login Activity) and add the following code to validate the user input. When you click login, it will validate and check the user is available or not. If credentials are correct, it goes to the main page. If you want to sign up click a floating button.

Step 7 — SignupActivity.cs Code

Add another activity for the sign-up page. For that, Go to Solution Explorer >> Resources >> activities and add a new activity named signup_activity.cs. The full source code is given below. Entered data will be validated and stored in Intent.

using System.Collections.Generic;    
using System.Linq;    
using System.Text;

using Android.Runtime;    
using Android.Views;    
using Android.Widget;    

namespace SignLoginScreen.Resources.activitys    
{    
    [Activity(Label = "signupActivity")]    
    public class signupActivity : Activity

        protected override void OnCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState)    
        {    
            base.OnCreate(savedInstanceState);    

            // Create your application here    
            SetContentView(Resource.Layout.layout2);

            var emailText = FindViewById<TextView>(Resource.Id.txtEmail1);    
            var pwdText = FindViewById<TextView>(Resource.Id.etPassword);    
            var submitButton = FindViewById<Button>(Resource.Id.button);    
            var displayalartText = new StringBuilder();

                     //StartActivity
