Placeholder

The Placeholder allows you to add any native widget to your application. To do that, you need to put a Placeholder somewhere in the UI hierarchy and then create and configure the native widget that you want to appear there. Finally, pass your native widget to the event arguments of the creatingView event.

main-page.xml

<Page xmlns="http://schemas.nativescript.org/tns.xsd">
  <StackLayout>
    <Placeholder creatingView="creatingView"/>
  </StackLayout>
</Page>

main-page.android.js\main-page.android.ts

function creatingView(args) {
    var nativeView = new android.widget.TextView(args.context);
    nativeView.setSingleLine(true);
    nativeView.setEllipsize(android.text.TextUtils.TruncateAt.END);
    nativeView.setText("Native");
    args.view = nativeView;
}
exports.creatingView = creatingView;
import { CreateViewEventData } from "ui/placeholder";

export function creatingView(args: CreateViewEventData) {
    let nativeView = new android.widget.TextView(args.context);
    nativeView.setSingleLine(true);
    nativeView.setEllipsize(android.text.TextUtils.TruncateAt.END);
    nativeView.setText("Native");
    args.view = nativeView;
}

main-page.ios.js\main-page.ios.ts

function creatingView(args) {
    var nativeView = new UILabel();
    nativeView.text = "Native";
    args.view = nativeView;
}
exports.creatingView = creatingView;
import { CreateViewEventData } from "ui/placeholder";

export function creatingView(args: CreateViewEventData) {
    let nativeView = new UILabel();
    nativeView.text = "Native";
    args.view = nativeView;
}
