How to Change dropdown direction

Platform: Xamarin.Forms |
Control: SfAutoComplete

Syncfusion Autocomplete in Xamarin provides us the Dropdown placement either in Bottom or in Top position.


To add Suggestion box placement in Autocomplete follow the below given procedure:


Step 1: Create the autocomplete sample with all necessary assemblies.

Step 2: Create a class Countrylist, and create an instance for list called countryList and then add the countries in the list using the function Add ().

Step 3: Mention the Suggestion box placement position in the program.


The below code illustrates the way to achieve this.


Code snippet:

namespace Autocomplete
public partial class AutocompletePage : ContentPage
    public AutocompletePage()
        //Initialize the autocomplete control.
        SfAutoComplete autocomplete = new SfAutoComplete();
        autocomplete.Watermark ="Enter Text";
        autocomplete.SuggestionBoxPlacement = SuggestionBoxPlacement.Top;//Drop down direction.
        //List to be shown in the autocomplete control
        List<string> countryList = new List<string>();
        countryList.Add("United States");
        countryList.Add("United Kingdom");
        autocomplete.AutoCompleteSource = countryList;
        //Layout for the autocomplete control
        StackLayout autocompleteLayout = new StackLayout();
        autocompleteLayout.Padding = new Thickness(50, 100, 50, 0);
        Content = autocompleteLayout;
