How to set shadow effect to the cards in Xamarin.Forms

Platform: Xamarin.Forms |
Control: SfCardLayout

The SfCardView is a Syncfusion UI component that helps organizing the content as cards. This section explains how to add shadow effect to cards in Xamarin.Forms. The shadow effect can be achieved by enabling the HasShadow property of CardView.


Also, you can customize the shadow effect color by customizing ShadowColor property in CardView.


Consider the use case of showing a list of social media applications in a Xamarin.Forms application as below.

      <ListView   x:Name="EventListView"
                  ItemsSource="{Binding Items}">
                        <cards:SfCardView   Margin="10" HasShadow="True" ShadowColor="LightBlue">
                            <Grid HorizontalOptions="FillAndExpand" VerticalOptions="FillAndExpand">
                                <StackLayout Orientation="Horizontal" >
                                    <Image Margin="10,0,0,0" Source="{Binding Image}" 
                                                  HeightRequest="40"   WidthRequest="40"/>
                                    <Label Margin="10,0,0,0" FontAttributes="Bold"
                                           FontSize="16" MaxLines="1" Text="{Binding Title}"
                                           LineBreakMode="NoWrap" TextColor="Black"
                                           HorizontalOptions="Start" VerticalOptions="Center" />




public class CardModel
    public string Title {get; set;}
    public string Image {get; set;}



public class CardViewModel
   public IEnumerable<CardModel> Items { get; set; }
        public CardViewModel()
            Items = new CardModel[]
                new CardModel(){ Title = "Facebook" , Image = "FacebookFill.png"},
                new CardModel(){ Title = "Gmail" , Image = "GmailFill.png"},
                new CardModel(){ Title = "Instagram" , Image = "InstagramFill.png"},
                new CardModel(){ Title = "WhatsApp" , Image = "WhatsAppFill.png"},



Shadow card support is only available in iOS and Android platforms.
