You can edit the tapped ListViewItem by binding the item to DataForm in Xamarin.Forms SfListView.


ListView ItemTemplate defined with Edit button to edit the data.

<ContentPage xmlns:listView="clr-namespace:Syncfusion.ListView.XForms;assembly=Syncfusion.SfListView.XForms">
           <listView:SfListView x:Name="listView" 
                           ItemsSource="{Binding contactsinfo}" >
                                <StackLayout >
                                            <Image Source="{Binding ContactImage}" />
                                            <StackLayout Grid.Column="1">
                                                <Label Text="{Binding ContactName}"/>
                                                <Label Text="{Binding ContactNumber}"/>
                                            <Grid Grid.Column="2">
                                                <Button x:Name="ZoomIn" Text="Edit" Command="{Binding Path=BindingContext.TapCommand, Source={x:Reference Name=listView}}" 
                                            CommandParameter="{Binding .}" />


DataForm defined with TappedItem binding from ViewModel.

    <dataForm:SfDataForm x:Name="dataForm" 
                         LabelPosition="Top" CommitMode="PropertyChanged"
                         DataObject="{Binding TappedItem}"/>
    <Button Text="Done" Command="{Binding DoneCommand}" Grid.Row="1"/>


On edit, Update the edited item to TappedItem property and navigate to DataForm page

public class ContactsViewModel : INotifyPropertyChanged
    private Contacts _tappedItem;
    public Command<object> TapCommand { get; set; }
    public Command<object> DoneCommand { get; set; }
    public Contacts TappedItem
        get => _tappedItem;
        set {
            _tappedItem = value;
    public ContactsViewModel()
        TapCommand = new Command<object>(ButtonTapped);
        DoneCommand = new Command<object>(DoneTapped);
    private void DoneTapped(object obj)
    private void ButtonTapped(object obj)
        TappedItem = obj as Contacts;
        var dataForm = new EditPage();
        dataForm.BindingContext = this;
