Hi, I am able to show any event created on my sfCalendar in Xamarin.Forms on the android one, so I was wondering if there is a way to get events from a database using a web service for example, and to show them on my calendar on real time, so when I add to my database a new event wiht the specific date, name, description, etc. it will show on that date and with that name and description, etc. in the calendar on my app.
Hope I'm being specific enough, if not please do tell me and also if it is not possible with calendar, is it possible with the SfSchedule?

Recently I created one using Google Firebase, ultilizo from User Authentication to record real-time database.
var eventoColetadorOk = true;
listView.ItemAppearing += async (s, e) =>
FirebaseClient clienteDB = new FirebaseClient("https://YOURACCOUNTFIREBASE.firebaseio.com/");
as you can see I collect the information you only need the first time Listview displays.
put the whole event in listview not find another better place, so my application was fast and practice.
I not left completely in real time it can consume a lot User band, since Brazil in my country, that the developer has to take into consideration!
I have helped!
