How to restrict chip selection in Xamarin

Platform: Xamarin.Forms |
Control: SfChipGroup |

This article explains how to restrict the chip selection in Xamarin ChipGroup.


Consider if your requirement is to restrict a specific chip from the selection process, it can be achieved by controlling the selection functionality using the SelectionChanging event Cancel argument.



It restricts the chip selection when you set Cancel value to true.


Here, users are allowed to select all languages except Java. 




    ItemsSource="{Binding Languages}"




        private void SfChipGroup_SelectionChanging(object sender, Syncfusion.Buttons.XForms.SfChip.SelectionChangingEventArgs e)
          if(e.AddedItem != null && (e.AddedItem as Language).Name.Equals("Java"))
                e.Cancel = true;


public class ViewModel : INotifyPropertyChanged
        private ObservableCollection<Language> languages;
        public ObservableCollection<Language> Languages
                return languages;
                languages = value;
        public ViewModel()
            Languages = new ObservableCollection<Language>();
            Languages.Add(new Language () { Name = "C#" });
            Languages.Add(new Language () { Name = "HTML" });
            Languages.Add(new Language () { Name = "Java" });
            Languages.Add(new Language () { Name = "JS" });
