Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.
We have analyzed your query “Is DataForm available individually to use to build custom UI?” we regret that DataForm features like validation and error indication are non-UI helper classes they were not used with other UI elements. As of now, DataForm supports custom editors using which you can use custom UI view as editors. Kindly refer our UG documentation to know more about custom editors.
Currently, we are implementing new UI for DataForm which will include SfTextInputLayout support in SfDataForm. We will include this feature in our upcoming Volume 2 beta release which is expected to roll out by mid of June 2019. Kindly refer our UG documentation to know more information about SfTextInputLayout view.
If suggested UI does not meet your requirement kindly suggest us with your required UI and we will consider it in any of our upcoming releases.
