How to change the background color for editing cell

Platform: Xamarin.iOS |
Control: SfDataGrid |
Product Version:

SfDataGrid allows you to customize the background color for editing cell by customizing the cell renderer associated to the edited grid cell.

Refer the below code example in which GridCellNumericRenderer is customized and the OnInitializeEditView method is overridden to customize the background color of the editing cell.


public class NumericColumnRenderer : GridCellNumericRenderer
       public NumericColumnRenderer()
       public override void OnInitializeEditView(DataColumnBase dataColumn, SFNumericTextBox view)
            base.OnInitializeEditView(dataColumn, view);
            view.BackgroundColor = UIColor.Cyan;



In MyViewController, the existing GridCellNumericRenderer has to be removed from SfDataGrid.CellRenderers collection and the customized NumericCellRenderer has to be added to the CellRenderer collection.

public class MyViewController:UIViewController
      SfDataGrid dataGrid;
      ViewModel viewModel;
      public MyViewController()
            dataGrid = new SfDataGrid();
            viewModel = new ViewModel();
      public override void ViewDidLoad()
            this.View.BackgroundColor = UIColor.White;
            dataGrid.ItemsSource = viewModel.OrdersInfo;
            dataGrid.AutoGenerateColumns = false;
            dataGrid.AllowEditing = true;
            dataGrid.EditTapAction = TapAction.OnTap;
            dataGrid.CellRenderers.Add("Numeric", new NumericColumnRenderer());
            var numericColumn = new GridNumericColumn();
            numericColumn.MappingName = "OrderID";
            numericColumn.AllowEditing = true;
      public override void ViewDidLayoutSubviews()
            dataGrid.Frame = new CGRect(0, 50, View.Frame.Width, View.Frame.Height - 20);
