For exporting an SfDataGrid to Pdf or Excel, I have been unable to successfully load the app from your Sample Link (How to export a SfDataGrid to excel or PDF using ToolbarItems of a Page?) into Visual Studio 2022. It seems to use an older Xamarin architecture. Your other samples that I have found seem to leave out some code like UIViewController or QLPreviewController for IOS. Can you please provide a sample that runs as-is? I would very much appreciate it. Thanks.
