example of SfDataForm in a dialog context

We are creating a Xamarin Forms UWP app that will use dialogs for data entry. We are considering the SfDataForm, but it appears to want to live in a full sized page. How would this control be used in a dialog context where the dialog pops over the rest of the screen?

We have used therg.plugins.popup control freely available on GitHub to create dialogs in the past. How does an app created using SyncF controls do it?

Hi John, 
  
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 
  
Based on the shared information we suspect that your requirement is to “achieve popup dialog”, for that you can use Syncfusion’s SfPopupLayout control. Kindly refer our UG documentation to know more about SfPopupLayout. 
  
  
We have prepared a simple sample using DataForm inside SfPopupLayout. 
 
Code Snippet: 
  
<sfpopup:SfPopupLayout x:Name="popUpLayout" StaysOpen="True" > 
      <sfpopup:SfPopupLayout.PopupView> 
           <sfpopup:PopupView  > 
                 <sfpopup:PopupView.ContentTemplate> 
                      <DataTemplate> 
                          <sfdataForm:SfDataForm x:Name="dataform" 
                                                   DataObject="{Binding Dialog}"/> 
                      </DataTemplate> 
                 </sfpopup:PopupView.ContentTemplate> 
           </sfpopup:PopupView> 
      </sfpopup:SfPopupLayout.PopupView> 
</sfpopup:SfPopupLayout> 
  
Sample link: DataFormPopup 
  
We hope this helps. Please let us know if you would require any further assistance.
