Property Value


The DataTemplate for the ItemsView<TVisual>, or null


The ItemTemplate is used to define the visual appearance of objects from the ItemsSource. Through the item template you can set up data bindings to the user objects supplied to automatically fill in the visual and respond to any changes in the user object.

If the item template is null, Xamarin.Forms.ItemsView`1.CreateDefault(System.Object) is called and the result is used as the visual.

In this example, a template for a TextCell is created for a simple user object.

class Person
  public string FullName

  public string Address

void SetupView()
  var template = new DataTemplate (typeof (TextCell));

  // We can set data bindings to our supplied objects.
  template.SetBinding (TextCell.TextProperty, "FullName");
  template.SetBinding (TextCell.DetailProperty, "Address");

  // We can also set values that will apply to each item.
  template.SetValue (TextCell.TextColorProperty, Color.Red);

  itemsView.ItemTemplate = template;
  itemsView.ItemsSource = new[] {
    new Person { FullName = "James Smith", Address = "404 Nowhere Street" },
    new Person { FullName = "John Doe", Address = "404 Nowhere Ave" }
