How to change the size of the sort icon in Xamarin DataGrid (SfDataGrid)?

Platform: Xamarin.Forms |
Control: SfDataGrid |
Published Date: March 16, 2020 |
Last Revised Date: March 17, 2020

SfDataGrid allows you to modify the size of the SortIcon header. This can be achieved by overriding OnInitializeDisplayView method in custom SfDataGrid.GridHeaderCellRenderer and changing the size of its parent element.


public partial class MainPage : ContentPage
  public MainPage()
    dataGrid.CellRenderers.Add("HeaderView", new HeaderCellRenderer());
public class HeaderCellRenderer: GridHeaderCellRenderer
  public override void OnInitializeDisplayView(DataColumnBase dataColumn, ContentView view)
    base.OnInitializeDisplayView(dataColumn, view);
    ((view as BorderView).Content as Grid).ColumnDefinitions[1].Width = new GridLength(20, GridUnitType.Absolute);
