Designing Login System UI In Xamarin Android App

Xamarin is a cross-platform tool used to develop applications for Android, Windows, and iOS . Today, designing is really easy for every developer who has a little knowledge of a little bit of programming and front-end. So, here is the simple User Interface design for Login System. Here, I will show how to create a login system in Android using Xamarin in Visual Studio RC 2017.


  • Visual Studio RC 2017.
  • Xamarin Studio packages should be installed.
  • Self confidence with creativity.

Steps to be followed

Please follow the following steps to create Login System User Interface Design.

Step 1

Launch Visual Studio RC 2017 and go to File >>New >> Project.

Step 2

Then, you need to select the Android template from the list, name the Application, set location, and click "OK".


Step 3

Here we go! Our new project has been created. Now, we need to navigate to Designer page. To open the designer page, you need to open Solution Explorer from View >> Solution Explorer.

Step 4

Then, to open Designer page, select the following.

Solution Explorer >> Resources >> Layout >> Main.axml.

Step 5

Add the following code in Main.axml source page and then, open and view the Designer page.

  1. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>  
  2. <LinearLayout xmlns:android=""  
  3.     android:orientation="vertical"  
  4.     android:layout_width="match_parent"  
  5.     android:layout_height="match_parent"  
  6.     android:background="@android:color/background_light">  
  7.         <TextView  
  8.             android:text="Create An Account"  
  9.             android:textAppearance="?android:attr/textAppearanceLarge"  
  10.             android:layout_width="match_parent"  
  11.             android:layout_height="0dp"  
  12.             android:id="@+id/textView1"  
  13.             android:layout_weight="1"  
  14.             android:background="@android:color/darker_gray"  
  15.             android:textStyle="bold"  
  16.             android:textSize="25sp"  
  17.             android:gravity="center" />  
  18.         <Button  
  19.             android:text="Sign IN"  
  20.             android:layout_width="match_parent"  
  21.             android:layout_height="0dp"  
  22.             android:id="@+id/button1"  
  23.             android:layout_weight="1"  
  24.             android:textSize="25sp"  
  25.             android:background="@android:color/holo_blue_light" />  
  26.         <TextView  
  27.             android:text="OR"  
  28.             android:textAppearance="?android:attr/textAppearanceLarge"  
  29.             android:layout_width="match_parent"  
  30.             android:layout_height="0dp"  
  31.             android:id="@+id/textView2"  
  32.             android:layout_weight="1"  
  33.             android:background="@android:color/darker_gray"  
  34.             android:textSize="25sp"  
  35.             android:textColor="@android:color/background_light"  
  36.             android:gravity="center" />  
  37.         <Button  
  38.             android:text="Sign Up"  
  39.             android:layout_width="match_parent"  
  40.             android:layout_height="0dp"  
  41.             android:id="@+id/button2"  
  42.             android:layout_weight="1"  
  43.             android:textSize="30sp"  
  44.             android:background="@android:color/holo_blue_dark" />  
  45.     </LinearLayout>  
Step 6

Now, run the app using Visual Studio Android Emulator and press the green "Start" button in Debug menu. Our app gets executed successfully.

Note - Select which version of Android you want to run the app on.


The following will be the output of our Login System app.
