How to place line indicator instead of arrows while Drag and Drop in SfDataGrid?

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

SfDataGrid allows you to customize the drag and drop indicators by writing a custom style for SfDataGrid. Assign the new style to the SfDataGrid.GridStyle property.

To show a line indicator instead of the default arrow indicators, you need to remove the default indicator by overriding the style as the default indicators are arranged with a specific width. Now you can show your custom view as indicators using the SfDataGrid.RowColumnIndexToPoint method in the SfDataGrid.QueryRowDragging event.

When dragging is started, you need to add the custom view using AddSubview method and remove the it when the dragging is ended using RemoveFromSuperview method.

The below code illustrates how to place the custom view instead of Drag and Drop icon.


The below code example illustrates how to customize the drag and drop icon.

On executing the above code, the below output will be obtained.
