The Xamarin Popup layout control, also known as the Xamarin.Forms Modal Dialog control, is an alert dialog or popup that can be displayed in the desired position. It also provides options to customize and load any desired view in the control. The Xamarin.Forms popup has built-in layouts to display alert or popup for conventional needs. Furthermore, it provides options to customize the popup position with various animation modes and much more.

Built-in Xamarin Dialogs

Built-in Xamarin Dialogs allow you to show a popup with accept and decline functionalities for all basic scenarios. The built-in layouts of the popup comprise three regions, the header, body, and footer. Each region is fully customizable using a template to display the required information and notification.

In addition, you can decide to show or hide the headers and footers in a popup. Most importantly, you can use the Xamarin.Forms popup and its layout completely using the MVVM approach.

Above all, you can use the Xamarin.Forms popup layout as a modal window. It prevents interaction with the application until the window is closed using the built-in close icon.
