Edit template for columns

is there something like an edit template for sfdatagrid columns?
This would be a general solution for editing "extraordinary" values in cells. I know in WPF there is a EditTemplate property for GridTemplateColumn at least. Will this be implemented for Xamarin Forms, too?

Kind regards

Hi Kind,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products. Currently there is no support to edit the GridTemplateColumns . We have logged a feature request for the same and have added it to our upcoming features queue. You can expect the feature to be available in any of our upcoming releases(tentative).

I was hoping to use SfAutoComplete to edit text column cells. It would definitely be nice to have.

Hi Colt, 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 
As mentioned in the previous we have logged feature report for” Edit template for columns” and you can load anything inside the template. It will be impleneted any of our upcoming releases. As of now you can display the SfAutoComplete in datagrid by using GridTemplateColumn and please find the below UG link for the same.
