Wrong positioning on second opening

Dear Syncfusion,

when my popup is opened the second time, it's position is not the same like opening the first time. Here's the code:

using Syncfusion.ListView.XForms;
using Syncfusion.XForms.PopupLayout;
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

using Xamarin.Forms;

namespace AppXamlTest
public class MainPage : ContentPage

SfPopupLayout menuPopup;
Button titleButton;
DataTemplate DataTemplate;

public MainPage()

titleButton = new Button();
titleButton.Text = "Arbeitsbereich 1";
titleButton.Clicked += Button_Clicked;
NavigationPage.SetTitleView(this, titleButton);


StackLayout stackLayout = new StackLayout();
stackLayout.Children.Add(new Label { Text = "Welcome to Xamarin.Forms!" });

this.Content = stackLayout;


void Button_Clicked(object sender, EventArgs e)
menuPopup.Show(0D, 0D);
catch (Exception ex)


void CreateMenuPopup()
menuPopup = new SfPopupLayout();
menuPopup.Padding = 10;
menuPopup.PopupView.ShowFooter = false;
menuPopup.PopupView.ShowHeader = false;
DataTemplate = new DataTemplate(() =>
var menuItems = new List<string>() { "A", "B", "C" };
ListView listView = new ListView();
listView.ItemsSource = menuItems;
return listView;
menuPopup.PopupView.ContentTemplate = DataTemplate;
