The Xamarin.Forms DataGrid control is a high performance grid component that helps display and manipulate large amounts of data in a tabular format. Its rich feature set includes functionalities like data-binding, sorting, grouping, editing, filtering, swiping, dragging, resizing, loading more items, pull-to-refresh, and exporting to Excel and PDF file formats.

Xamarin.Forms DataGrid with highlighting features

High performance

The Xamarin.Forms DataGrid control is built from the ground up to achieve the best possible performance on the Xamarin platform, even when loading large data sets. Keep your data organized with both basic and advanced operations on cells, rows, and columns. Perform data processing operations like sorting, grouping, summaries, and real-time updates efficiently.

High performance DataGrid

Data sources

Data binding works out of the box for the most popular data sources. The Xamarin.Forms DataGrid control automatically generates columns for properties in the data model.

Binding data sources

Data shaping and manipulation

DataGrid with sorting


Sort data against one or more columns either by touch or programmatically to organize your data using conventional sorting techniques. Apply custom sorting logic to reorder the data when conventional techniques do not meet your requirements.

DataGrid with Groups


Group the data by one or more columns programmatically with customizable templates. Groups can be expanded or collapsed. Apply custom grouping logic to group data based on your application requirements.

Summary information in the DataGrid


Calculate and display sum, min, max, average, count, and custom aggregates for the entire grid or individual groups to show summarized information of all the data or just a section.

DataGrid with filtered data


Easily filter records by setting a predicate to the view to search for data that meets your requirements.

Real-time updates of DataGrid

Live streaming updates

Handle high frequency updates even under the most demanding scenarios where data is sorted and grouped in real time.

Loading more items

  • Load a subset of data at runtime.
  • Customize the Load More Items option and set its position to either the top or bottom of the grid.
  • Load data in chunks automatically when reaching the end of the list.

DataGrid with load more capabilities


  • Refresh the data source at runtime when performing the pull-to-refresh action.
  • Customize the pull-to-refresh view with sliding and pushing transition modes for a native pull-to-refresh experience.
