Remarks

Application developers implement a CollectionSynchronizationCallback method and pass it to the EnableCollectionSynchronization(IEnumerable, Object, CollectionSynchronizationCallback) method to enable correct multithreaded access to collection. After synchronization is enabled, the Xamarin.Forms framework passes accessMethod to the application developer's implementation of CollectionSynchronizationCallback each time that the framework needs to modify the collection in a multithreaded environment. The application developer's implementation should decide, based on the context object (which may be merely a locking object or the object on which the collection lives) and the value of the writeAccess parameter, whether or not to lock while calling accessMethod.
