This time I will tell you about the SearchBar, which is a control that allows us make a search of a specific information between a set of these. To understand better, I will be display these topics in the following sets:

SearchBar basic structure
To understand better, is important to know the basic structure needed to the SearchBar control. In the image showed below, I display an example of how we can begin using it and one of the most important events in my opinion. (Just giving life to the example ?).
This control has a lot of great events and properties, here I will be explain some of my favorites:
?SearchButtonPressed: This event is triggered when the search button is pressed. (As indicated in the image)
?SearchBarCommand: It’s the command that gets executed when the search button is pressed.
?TextChanged: Even though this event isn’t exclusive to this control, I added it in this explanation because is one of the most useful when creating search page. This event is triggered while we are writing a text.
Implementing SearchBar Page
And now, let’s create an example! Let’s see the XAML implementation:
The c# code: Creating a list
The method to search the information into the list:
Done!!! The SearchBar is implemented?
