Horizontally center SfComboBox

Good afternoon,
i'm trying to horizontally center a SfComboBox without success, seems that HorizontalOptions="Center" is not working.
If i try using a standard Xamarin.Forms Picker works fine, this is my code:

<ScrollView>
<StackLayout Padding="16">
<sfComboBox:SfComboBox HorizontalOptions="Center"/>
</StackLayout>
</ScrollView>

Using a standard Picker works fine:

<ScrollView>
<StackLayout Padding="16">
<Picker HorizontalOptions="Center"/>
</StackLayout>
</ScrollView>

Always uses all the available space; i have the same problem also inside a TextInputLayout.

Thanks in advance

Hi Marco, 
 
Greetings from Syncfusion.

Hi Marco, 
 
In a StackLayout, the SfComboBox default width has taken full size. So, we would like to let you know that the WidthRequest needs to be set for the SfComboBox to render at the center. Please have the code snippet below,  
 
Code Snippet: 
 <ScrollView>  
<StackLayout Padding="16">   
<combobox:SfComboBox HorizontalOptions="Center" WidthRequest="100" /> </StackLayout> 
 </ScrollView> 
 
Please check with the above and let us know if you have any concerns.

Hi Marco,

In a Grid, Entry also takes the full space. So, we would like to let you know that the WidthRequest and HeightRequest needs to be set for the SfComboBox to render at the center. Please have the code snippet below,

Code Snippet:

<ScrollView>
        <Grid>  
            <combobox:SfComboBox HorizontalOptions="Center"
                                 WidthRequest="100"
                                 HeightRequest="50"
                                 VerticalOptions="Center"/>
        </Grid>
 </ScrollView>

Please check with the above and let us know if you have any concerns.
