I'm following this page :: http://help.syncfusion.com/xamarin/sfcarousel/overview  

We cannot get this to work, there's no itemTemplate to reference. Can you please point me to a working Xamarin example?

Also, are you able to click on an image in order to see the full sized image and pinch zoom on it?

Hi Steve,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.

Query: Can you please point me to a working Xamarin example?

We are glad to let you know that in our latest Volume 2 2016 release we have provided support for having Custom View and itemTemplate support. In that we can have Images from any custom source and it can be assigned to SfCarouselItem's ContentView property API or we can assign a Datatemplate to the ItemTemplate property.

For more details, please check our user documentation for Carousel

Link: http://help.syncfusion.com/xamarin/sfcarousel/getting-started

Please upgrade to our latest Syncfusion version to have these features and below is the download link for upgrading the Syncfusion version.


We have created a sample for carousel with itemTemplate . Please download the same from the following link

Query: are you able to click on an image in order to see the full sized image and pinch zoom on it?

Your requirement can be achieved by using "Tapped event with SfCarouselItem". Please refer the following code example

Code Example,

SfCarouselItem item = new SfCarouselItem();

TapGestureRecognizer tappedGestureRecognizer = new TapGestureRecognizer();

tappedGestureRecognizer.Tapped += (object sender, System.EventArgs e) =>

// Zooming effect code for Images
