Better Dynamic Favourite Icons

I’ve noticed that the dynamic nature of adding sounds to favourites could be better. To that end i’ve added a favourite and not-favourite version of the favourite icon (star).

I needed to go back and implement INotifyPropertyChanged on my ViewModel.

And also implement a ValueConverter I have called FavouriteValueConverter

 

 

I’m so glad both these features from XAML in UWP and WPF are available in Xamarin Forms.

The resulting list showing the state of favourited and unfavourited sounds, that immediately toggle when clicked.

  • More / better sounds
  • Stop sound button?
  • Capture App Events?
  • Search?
  • Website?
