The TreeView control for Xamarin is a hierarchical listview representing hierarchical data in a tree like structure with expand and collapse node options. The control provides an optimized reuse strategy, smooth scrolling experience, and virtualization. In addition, illustrating office hierarchy, organizational structure, or nested relationships in an application can be done easily. It enhances performance with features like data binding, unbound node population, template selector, selection with different selection modes, complete UI customization, and commands for MVVM.

Data binding

The TreeView control supports both ItemsSource binding and unbound mode nodes population. Easily customize the TreeView control as a navigation control by populating the unbound mode nodes. This layout can be easily defined in the XAML. In addition, you can use all the necessary properties and commands of Xamarin.Forms TreeView in the MVVM approach.

Load on demand

TreeView has a load-on-demand option that allows you to load huge amounts of data by dynamically loading the indicator, which improves the control’s performance.
