Scrolling in DataGrid, poor performance with UWP

Hello, I have an SfDataGrid with approximately 55 columns and 4 frozen columns, and when scrolling horizontally, nothing works fine, I attach the result.

You can replicate the result in UWP with the Horizontal Scrolling example from your demo, only download the repository from https://github.com/syncfusion/xamarin-demos and modify the next files:
  • xamarin-demos-master\Forms\DataGrid\DataGrid\Samples\Model\OrderInfoRepository.cs changing this method

        internal OrderInfo GenerateOrder(int id)


            var shipcountry = this.shipCountry[this.random.Next(5)];

            var shipcitycoll = this.shipCity[shipcountry];

            var order = new OrderInfo()


                OrderID = (id + 10000).ToString(),

                EmployeeID = this.random.Next(1700, 1800).ToString(),

                CustomerID = this.customerID[this.random.Next(15)],

                IsClosed = (id % this.random.Next(1, 10) > 5) ? true : false,

                FirstName = this.firstNames[this.random.Next(15)],

                LastName = this.lastNames[this.random.Next(15)],

                Gender = this.genders[this.random.Next(5)],

                ShipCity = shipcitycoll[this.random.Next(shipcitycoll.Length - 1)],

                ShipCountry = this.shipCountry[this.random.Next(5)],

                Freight = Math.Round(this.random.Next(1000) + this.random.NextDouble(), 2),

                ShippingDate = this.orderedDates[this.random.Next(15)],

                ShippingDate1 = this.orderedDates[this.random.Next(15)],


                ShippingDate44 = this.orderedDates[this.random.Next(15)]


            return order;


  • xamarin-demos-master\Forms\DataGrid\DataGrid\Samples\Model\OrderInfo.cs adding this 44 properties at the end

        private DateTime shippingDate1;

        public DateTime ShippingDate1


            get => this.shippingDate1;



                this.shippingDate1 = value;






        private DateTime shippingDate44;

        public DateTime ShippingDate44


            get => this.shippingDate44;



                this.shippingDate44 = value;




  • xamarin-demos-master\Forms\DataGrid\DataGrid\Samples\DiagonalScrolling\DiagonalScrolling.xaml adding to SfDataGrid this line


Waiting for your answers.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Salvador,  
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 
We have checked the video and analyzed the sample based on the provided code snippet. The issue “Flickering occurs when reusing the view in virtualization control in Xamarin.Form.UWP” is a known issue and the issue occurs from the framework side. We had already logged a bug report in the framework. 

We are having follow-up for the same, we will let you know once we got any solution. We appreciate your patience until then.

Any update about that problem?

We are using a SfDataGrid with a few columns. The first one is configured with MinimumWidth and ColumnSizer.LastColumnFill. The other columns have fixed Width and ColumnSizer.None. The dataGrid has FrozenColumnsCount = 1.

With this configuration, we are experiencing the same issues exposed in this thread. 

Is available some fix for that? or the problem is still on the Xamarin.Forms side?

Thank you!

Hi Benito,

We have checked with 4.6 Xamarin Forms version but unfortunately the issue still persist from FrameWork side and also we didn’t receive proper update from Xamarin Team. We will let you know once we got proper solution from Xamarin team.
