Hi, I want to change the text that appears in DataGridBooleanColumn . I don't want to display True or False but something else like Yes, No, Oui, Non etc.
Also is there any way to change an int field like having binding an Id from another table but wanting to display the name?

You can accomplish this by using a DataGridTemplateColumn instead of a BooleanColumn. In the DataTemplate, use a Label to display the text. Bind that Label's Text property to the model's boolean property and use a converter to return the exact text you want to display.
public class MyBoolToStringConverter : IValueConverter
public void Convert(object value, ....)
return (bool)value ? "Oui" : "Non";
Note that the code above was abbreviated so that I could focus on the logic pertaining to changing the display text. If you're not familiar with IValueConverter, here's a tutorial from Xamarin that explains how they work with the rest of the required code.
