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.
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.
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.
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.
There are three commit modes supported by the Telerik DataForm:
With the two-way data binding when the source properties are updated outside of the control, they are still kept in sync with the DataForm editors, enabling you to solve a wide-range of scenarios.
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.
