Just curious, when/why would you want to code UI layout in C# vs using a template ?



Hmm good question. The last time I did C# I did a little WPF and mostly Win or Web Forms so I'm not sure what the state of creating GUIs with C# / .Net is. If this technique affords me better cross platform support then it likely makes sense to use it but as far as using it versus a template I'm not really sure.


XAML is the state of the art, which is cross-platform thanks to Xamarin.Forms.


c# is generally for back end logic. UI's are generally done using templates on web/wpf/winforms platforms. Especially on the web it makes little sense to do layouts in c#
