Introducing Xamarin controls in WPF

What’s New in 2019 Volume 3: Xamarin.Forms WPF

I’m so pleased to announce that our latest release, the 2019 Volume 3, is rolled out and packed with new controls for our Xamarin.Forms WPF platform. In our previous release, we presented the Charts control in Xamarin.Forms WPF. Now, based on demand, the following controls have been provided in this release:

Configuring the new components in your projects

Create a new WPF project and add the Xamarin libraries, as explained in Microsoft’s user guide. To include the Syncfusion controls, set WPF as the start-up project in your existing Xamarin project. Next, install the required NuGet package and call the Init method for each component, as shown in the following table.

NuGetControlsInitialization Methods

The following code example illustrates initializing Chart control in the Xamarin application,

public partial class MainWindow : FormsApplicationPage
    public MainWindow()
         LoadApplication(new App());

Supported features and limitations


The Scheduler control provides common scheduling features for creating and managing appointments. It has interactive, user-friendly features for performing common operations such as selection and navigation. Get hands-on experience with our Scheduler control in Xamarin.Forms WPF with the samples available in this GitHub location.

Grid, please!

We have plans to support data grid also in our upcoming release.

Sfdatagrid, SfAutocomplete and SfPdfViewer. That would be great and critical to move my current Xamarin Project to WPF

SfDataGrid will be available on volume 4 release. Currently we don’t have immediate plan for the same. we will include based on further demand for these controls.

Nice start ! PdfViewer and DataGrid are highly needed please 😀

Hi Nicolas,
DataGrid for Xamarin.Forms WPF will be available in 2020 Volume 1 release. Currently, we do not have any immediate plan for including the PDF viewer. But we will include based on further demands. Thank you for your interest. 🙂 To know more about the features that will be available in 2020 Volume 1 Beta release, checkout the following blog,


Thanks a lot for those info.
Can’t wait to play with it 😉

Any plans for SfTreeview in the near future? PdfView would be great too!
