The Xamarin DataGrid is a high-performance grid control that helps you to efficiently 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 more. It supports exporting the entire DataGrid or selected items to Excel and PDF file formats. It has also been optimized to handle high-frequency real-time updates.

High performance

The Xamarin.Forms 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 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.

Data binding

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

Binding data sources to XamarinForms DataGrid

Responsive DataGrid

Responsive features allow the Xamarin.Forms DataGrid layout to be viewed on various devices. It is also possible to hide specific columns based on devices. Customize the width of all the columns or individual columns with the built-in column sizing options.

In-place editing support with built-in column types provides the best editing experience. There are text, numeric, picker, and date picker editors with support to commit or roll back changes.

Data shaping and manipulation

Xamarin Forms DataGrid with sorting


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.

Xamarin Forms DataGrid with groups


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

Xamarin Forms DataGrid with summary information


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. Display summaries with different summary types, such as:

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

Xamarin Forms DataGrid with filtered data


Easily filter and search records by setting a predicate to the view.

Xamarin Forms DataGrid with real-time updates

Live streaming updates

The Xamarin.Forms DataGrid control can handle high-frequency updates even under the most demanding scenarios in which data is sorted and grouped in real time. The summaries are calculated in an optimized way and the updated summary is displayed in real-time 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 either the top or bottom of the Xamarin.Forms DataGrid.
  • Load data in chunks automatically on reaching the end of a list.

Xamarin Forms DataGrid with load more capabilities

Pull to refresh

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

Drag and drop functionalities in Xamarin Forms DataGrid

Drag and drop

Reorder rows and columns for additional end-user flexibility with column and row drag and drop.

Column resizing in Xamarin Forms DataGrid


Resize a column either on the move or on touch-up to read a lot of data with flexibility. Restrict a column with a minimum width to avoid hiding the column and a maximum width to restrict resizing beyond the limit.


Styling and Theming in Xamarin Forms DataGrid


  • Customize styles for every view in the DataGrid to display visually appealing data.
  • Apply alternate row color for better readability.
  • Customize the font, font size and font attributes for the record and header cells for an elegant look and feel.

  • Apply animation to the selected row or cell for the best selection experience.
  • Keep track of the last row and cell interacted with using the current cell. Use the keyboard to navigate through rows and cells for desktop platforms.
  • Customize the selection background and foreground color, as well as the border color and border width for the current cell.

We do not sell the Xamarin DataGrid separately. It is only available for purchase as part of the Syncfusion Xamarin suite, which contains over 150 Xamarin components, including the DataGrid. A single developer license for the Syncfusion Essential Studio for Xamarin suite costs $995.00 USD, including one year of support and updates. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team today to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

You can find our Xamarin DataGrid demo here.

No, our 150 Xamarin components, including DataGrid, are not sold individually, only as a single package. However, we have competitively priced the product so it only costs a little bit more than what some other vendors charge for their DataGrid alone. We have also found that, in our experience, our customers usually start off using one of our products and then expand to several products quickly, so we felt it was best to offer all 150 Xamarin components for a flat fee of $995/developer. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team today to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

No, this is a commercial product and requires a paid license. However, a free community license is also available for companies and individuals whose organizations have less than $1 million USD in annual gross revenue and five or fewer developers.

A good place to start would be our comprehensive getting started documentation.
