The Xamarin.Android Picker control is an item selector control that can be opened as a dialog. It allows users to pick an item from a list that can be modified with custom views. Its rich feature set includes functionalities like data binding, multiple-column layout, cascading selection, and headers and footers with custom views.

Data Sources

Data binding works out of the box for the most popular data sources. The Xamarin.Android Picker control can automatically generate its columns based on the data source structure.
