Using Xamarin.Forms SfDataGrid in WPF-Project

Hello Support,

I have built a custom component which includes Your "SfDataGrid" in the .NetStandard 2.0 class library of a Xamarin.Forms project. With all the mentioned things in Your documentation it works perfectly under "iOS", "UWP" and "Android". Since there is the possibility to use Xamarin.Forms also together with WPF I am trying now to make it work there either. But when starting the application it crashes as soon as I try to get to the ContentPage where the component is placed in. I get the following error message: "System.ArgumentException: Breite und Höhe dürfen keine negative Zahl sein." [Width and height mustn't a negative number] You can find a screenshot of the message attached.

Are there any special settings I have to look out for? Is it already supported for WPF? Or may I have to use the specific "SfGrid.WPF" not beeing able to work with my non platform specific component I wrote?

Project information (.NetStandard 2.0):
- Syncfusion.Xamarin.SfListView (
- Syncfusion.Xamarin.SfAutoComplete (
- Syncfusion.Licensing (
- Syncfusion.Xamarin.SfDataGrid (
- Xamarin.Forms (

Project information (WPF):
- Syncfusion.Licensing (
- Syncfusion.Xamarin.Compression (
- Syncfusion.Xamarin.Core (
- Syncfusion.Xamarin.DataGridExport (
- Syncfusion.Xamarin.GridCommon (
- Syncfusion.Xamarin.Pdf (
- Syncfusion.Xamarin.SfCombobox (
- Syncfusion.Xamarin.SfDataGrid (
- Syncfusion.Xamarin.SfNumericTextBox (
- Syncfusion.Xamarin.SfPicker (
- Syncfusion.Xamarin.XlsIO (
- Xamarin.Forms (
- Xamarin.Forms.Platform.WPF (

Would be glad to hear from You soon. If there are any further information needed, feel free to contact me.

Kind regards,
