Syncfusion Autocomplete in Xamarin provides a support to add image and buttons in the popup.


To add image and button for drop down in Autocomplete follow the below given procedure:


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

Step 2: Add necessary images in the Drawable folder that has to be shown on to the drop-down list.

Step 3: Use the below code snippets as such to get the exact output.


The below code illustrates the way to achieve this.

Xaml Code:

  <DataTemplate x:Key="itemTemplate">
      <StackLayout Orientation="Horizontal" HorizontalOptions="CenterAndExpand" Padding="5,0,0,0" >
          <Image Source="{Binding Image}" HeightRequest="40" WidthRequest="40" Aspect="AspectFit"/>
          <Button Text="{Binding Label}" TextColor="Black" WidthRequest="200" />
<StackLayout Padding="50" >
  <autocomplete:SfAutoComplete x:Name="autocomplete" DisplayMemberPath="Label" MaximumDropDownHeight="260" DropDownItemHeight="50" ItemTemplate="{StaticResource itemTemplate}" DataSource="{Binding ItemsCollection}" HeightRequest="60" WidthRequest="400" />


Code Behind Code:

namespace Autocomplete
public partial class AutocompletePage : ContentPage
public AutocompletePage()
    autocomplete.BindingContext = new AutoCompleteViewModel();
public class AutoCompleteModel
    public AutoCompleteModel(string label, string imagestr)
        Label = label;
        Image = imagestr;
    private string _label;
    public string Label
        get { return _label; }
        set { _label = value; }
    private string _image;
    public string Image
        get { return _image; }
        set { _image = value; }
public class AutoCompleteViewModel
    public AutoCompleteViewModel()
        ItemsCollection.Add(new AutoCompleteModel("Uganda", "image1.png"));
        ItemsCollection.Add(new AutoCompleteModel("Ukraine", "image2.png"));
        ItemsCollection.Add(new AutoCompleteModel("United States", "image3.png"));
        ItemsCollection.Add(new AutoCompleteModel("United Kingdom", "image4.png"));
        ItemsCollection.Add(new AutoCompleteModel("Uzbekisthan", "image5.png"));
    private ObservableCollection<AutoCompleteModel> itemsCollection = new ObservableCollection<AutoCompleteModel>();
    public ObservableCollection<AutoCompleteModel> ItemsCollection
        get { return itemsCollection; }
        set { itemsCollection = value; }
