How to render DataForm using ReactiveUI in Xamarin Forms?

1 min read

ReactiveUI is built on a reactive programming foundation and is specifically implemented utilizing Reactive Extensions. This article explains how to render Xamarin.Forms dataform in ReactiveUI framework in Xamarin Forms.


DataForm definition in xaml.

    <dataForm:SfDataForm x:Name="dataForm" Grid.Row="0"/>


The ContactInfo class (ViewModel) should be inherited from ReactiveObject.

    public class ContactInfo : ReactiveObject
        private AddressInfo addressInfo;
        public AddressInfo AddressInfo
            get => addressInfo;
            set => this.RaiseAndSetIfChanged(ref addressInfo, value);
        public ContactInfo()
            AddressInfo = new AddressInfo();
    public class AddressInfo
        public string Name { get; set; }
        public string Address{ get; set; }
        public string Email { get; set; }
        public string City { get; set; }


Derive the MainPage from IViewFor<T>, implement this interface on your Views to support Routing and Binding, and then set up the bindings for DataObject in the main page for the defined view model.

    public partial class MainPage : ContentPage, IViewFor<ContactInfo>
        public MainPage()
            ViewModel = new ContactInfo();
            this.Bind(ViewModel, x => x.AddressInfo, x => x.dataForm.DataObject);
        public ContactInfo ViewModel { get; set; }
        object IViewFor.ViewModel
            get { return ViewModel; }
            set { ViewModel = (ContactInfo)value; }
