How to handle button action of ListView item when dragging in Xamarin.Forms (SflistView)?

Platform: Xamarin.Forms |
Control: SfListView

You can handle the button click action that is loaded in the ItemTemplate by maintaining a property in the ViewModel and skip the process while drag and drop the ListViewItem using Xamarin.Forms SfListView.


Bind Button.Command to skip the button click action.

<ContentPage xmlns:syncfusion="clr-namespace:Syncfusion.ListView.XForms;assembly=Syncfusion.SfListView.XForms">
            <syncfusion:SfListView x:Name="listView"
                                   ItemsSource="{Binding ContactsInfo}">
                                <Grid x:Name="grid" RowSpacing="0">
                                    <Button Text="{Binding ContactName}" x:Name="button" Command="{Binding BindingContext.TapCommand ,Source={x:Reference Name=listView}}" CommandParameter="{Binding .}"/>


Behavior class to trigger the SfListView.ItemDragging event. Update the property isDragEndRaised to true, based on the DragAction.

class Behavior : Behavior<SfListView>
    public SfListView listview { get; private set; }
    protected override void OnAttachedTo(SfListView bindable)
        listview = bindable as SfListView;
        listview.ItemDragging += Listview_ItemDragging;
    private void Listview_ItemDragging(object sender, ItemDraggingEventArgs e)
        var viewModel = (sender as SfListView).BindingContext as ListViewGroupingViewModel;
        if (e.Action == Syncfusion.ListView.XForms.DragAction.Drop)
            viewModel.isDragEndRaised = true;
    protected override void OnDetachingFrom(SfListView bindable)
        listview.ItemDragging -= Listview_ItemDragging;
        listview = null;


Disable the isDragEndRaised property in the TapCommand execution method.

public class ListViewGroupingViewModel
    private Command tapcommand;
    public Command TapCommand
        get { return tapcommand; }
        set { tapcommand = value; }
    public bool isDragEndRaised = false;
    public ListViewGroupingViewModel()
        TapCommand = new Command(OnButtonClick);
    private void OnButtonClick(object obj)
        var itemData = obj as ListViewContactsInfo;
        if (isDragEndRaised == true)
            isDragEndRaised = false;
            App.Current.MainPage.DisplayAlert("", "Tapped item data : " + itemData.ContactName, "OK");
