How to add expand or collapse icon in group header of SfListView?

SfListView provides support to expand or collapse the group when tapped on group header item by setting AllowGroupExpandCollapse as True.


And also allows to show the expand and collapse state of the group with icon in the group header by customizing the GroupHeaderTemplate and using the IsExpand property, which determines whether the group is expanded or collapsed.




You can switch the expand or collapse group icon based on IsExpand property using the BoolToImageConverter converter.




The below code illustrates to define the GroupHeaderTemplate in code behind,



The below screenshots show the Group Header icon is loaded when expanded and collapsed.

Hi Santhosh,


Sorry for the inconvenience.


We have upgraded the Xamarin.Forms version to v. in our SfListView source to avoid the source level warnings. So we recommend you to use Xamarin.Forms version(>=v. in the sample to resolve the exception. We have also updated the Xamarin.Forms version in our KB sample.


Please let us know if you require further assistance.



G.Muthu Kumaran.
