High Performance

The Xamarin.iOS DataGrid control was built from the ground up to achieve the best possible performance on the Xamarin platform, even when loading large data sets. Keep the 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.

Data Sources

The Xamarin.iOS DataGrid has data-binding support that works out of the box for popular data sources like List, DataTable and ObservableCollection. Further, the control is completely MVVM compatible and has built-in commands for handling interactions in MVVM.

Binding data sources

Data Shaping and Manipulation

Data grid with sorting of a column


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

Data grid with grouping of a column


Group data by one or more columns programmatically with customizable templates. Groups can be expanded or collapsed. Apply custom grouping logic to group data.

Summary information in the data grid


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

  • Total or table summary
  • Group summary
  • Summary in group caption or group header
  • Custom summary

Data grid with filtered data


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

Live streaming updates of data grid

Live streaming updates

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

Loading More Items

  • Load a subset of data to the bound collection at runtime.
  • Customize the load-more-items option and set its position to the top or bottom of the Xamarin.iOS DataGrid.
  • Load data in chunks automatically when reaching the end of the list.

Xamarin Forms DataGrid with load more capabilities


  • Refresh the data source at runtime when performing a pull-to-refresh action.

  • Adjust the row height (auto fit) based on the content of any column or certain columns to enhance readability.
  • Customize the width of all the columns or individual columns in a Xamarin.iOS DataGrid using the built-in column sizing options.
  • Customize the row height conditionally.

Row and column pinning in data grid

Row and column pinning

Freeze rows and columns at the top and left positions in the view for better readability, similar to Excel. Horizontal and vertical scrolling can be performed except on fixed columns and rows.
