Create Cross-Platform Mobile Forms Quickly

The Telerik DataForm for Xamarin.Forms, and Telerik Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Android wrappers for the DataForm control help developers to quickly build various forms such as: registration, data entry, login, etc. The control displays data object’s properties in a list form which can be read-only or editable by the end-users.

The Telerik DataForm for Xamarin.Forms allows for easy building of a data fill-in form from a single shared codebase.


Default and Custom Editors

The control detects the types of the data object’s properties and automatically displays the appropriate editors. It provides a set of built-in editors for the available primitive types such as numeric, string, Boolean and enumerations. You can also provide your own custom editor and implement it easily thanks to the rich API of the control.


Validation with Feedback

The Telerik DataForm for Xamarin features built-in validation, which gives you full control over the data collected through the DataForm. The control also gives suggestions in case the user has entered invalid data.


Collapsible Groups

Collapse and Expand groups helps significantly users to navigate through large lists. With this feature enabled, users can focus on the groups they need instead of scrolling endlessly up and down.

Commit (Editing) Modes

There are three commit modes supported by the Telerik DataForm:

- Immediate: data is synchronized with the business entity upon each change

- Onlostfocus: data is synchronized when the corresponding editor loses focus in favor of another editor. This is useful when asynchronously validating emails or usernames

- Delayed: data is synchronized with the business entity by explicitly calling a method exposed by the control’s API

Read-Only Mode

The control has a read-only mode for cases in which the end-user should only see the values of the properties, rather than edit them.
