How to show a popup menu when selecting a row in SF List view.


I am exploring the SF Listview control and want to implement a pop up menu when a row is selected. When trying to see what happens when a row is selected in the  Patient monitor application, it crashes with an unhandled exception.

Can this be fixed so that we can explore the sample of using the SF List view control.

I would like to implement this particular feature in my application.

Display a list view similar to the AutoFit Items sample. Image on the left and some data on the right.

When the user selects a particular row, a popup menu appears over the selected row with particular sub items and when a particular item is tapped, it navigates to another form with the parameters passed.

Please let me know how to achieve this, and is there a menu control in the Syncfusion Xamarin Forms Edition that works on both Android and iOS.

Support for contextual menu in SfListView 
Currently we do not have inbuilt support for the reported requirement at our end. But, we have already considered this as feature request and added it to our feature request list. The reported feature is a tentative feature and it will be available in any of our upcoming releases. We will let you know once the feature has been implemented. 
However, we have prepared a sample by a workaround which shows the contextual menu on holding an item (long pressed) and you can download it from the below link.
