Dynamic property-data source for DataForm

The dynamic property-data source feature for Xamarin's RadDataForm is designed for any case where a list of selective items is displayed – e.g. comboboxes, dropdowns and picker controls. For example, if the list of items requires the end user to pick a country and a city, the moment he selects a country (e.g. Germany), the list is dynamically updated with the cities corresponding to that country (e.g. Berlin, Frankfurt, Cologne, etc.).  

The dynamic updates of the property data-source are done via an observable collection or through the provider returning a list of new items.
