Topic summaries

  • Action.ToggleVisibility Deprecation – introduced in schema 1.2, Toggles (trigger action) the visibility of associated card elements. Why deprecating? The content changes on screen are not detectable by screen readers. Impact on card authors? None while developing a proper expander control that meets accessibility requirements. Let us know how you are using this capability today - issue 7678. This is a formality, not a breaking change.

  • React Native Adaptive Cards Renderer – developed and maintained by BigThinkCode and recently used in a Microsoft Viva Connections mobile app. Join the Adaptive Cards call next month to see a demo delivered by Vasanthakumar Sarpasayanam, CEO & Founder at BigThinkCode Technologies about using this capability.
  • Q & A – topics include availability of WinUI 3 Renderer and v1.6 schema, adoption of latest GA schema version (v1.5) by Viva Connections (presently using V1.3 today) and by other groups in general - release schedule coordination.
