How to create a horizontal listview in Xamarin.Forms?

Platform: Xamarin.Forms |
Control: SfListView |
Published Date: October 30, 2018 |
Last Revised Date: November 12, 2019

The Xamarin.Forms ListView displays an item in vertical or horizontal view by setting the Orientation property of ListView. The default orientation is vertical. The horizontal listview supports all the essential features such as grouping, swiping, template selector, pull-to-refresh, load more and much more.


<ContentPage xmlns:sync="clr-namespace:Syncfusion.ListView.XForms;assembly=Syncfusion.SfListView.XForms"
                <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/>
                <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/>
            <Grid x:Name="headerGrid" HeightRequest="45">
                <Label Text="Photo Gallery"/>
            <syncfusion:SfListView x:Name="listView" Orientation="Horizontal"
                                   SelectionMode="None" Grid.Row="1"
                                   ItemsSource="{Binding Gallerynfo}">
                                    <RowDefinition Height="*" />
                                    <RowDefinition Height="48" />
                                <Image Source="{Binding Image}" Aspect="Fill"/>
                                <Label Grid.Row="1" Text="{Binding ImageTitle}"/>

Can you change the styling for the selected item vs the rest of the items on the horizontal list view? Can events be triggered on selecting items from the list view to display related content? more like Master detail page.

Hi Srini,

We would like to inform you that you can apply styles for the SelectedItem using the SelectedItemTemplate as like below code snippet.


You can perform Selection related operations in the SelectionChanging and SelectionChanged event.

listView.SelectionChanging += ListView_SelectionChanging;

private void ListView_SelectionChanging(object sender, ItemSelectionChangingEventArgs e) { ... }

listView.SelectionChanged += ListView_SelectionChanged;

private void ListView_SelectionChanged(object sender, Syncfusion.ListView.XForms.ItemSelectionChangedEventArgs e) { …

We have prepared a sample for your reference. Please find the sample from the below link.

Please let us know if you have any concern.

Regards, Sangeetha Raju.
