DevExpress Popup Dialog for Xamarin.Forms

  • 2 minutes to read


Microsoft will end Xamarin-related support services on May 1, 2024 and shift development focus to the .NET MAUI platform.

Based on Microsoft’s decision, we highly recommend those using Xamarin.Forms to consider our .NET MAUI Component Suite for existing/new mobile projects. DevExpress .NET MAUI Popup Control supports many of the features/capabilities available in Xamarin.Forms Popup Control.

Please refer to the following help topic when you are ready to migrate your DevExpress Xamarin.Forms-based application to .NET MAUI: Migration from Xamarin.Forms to .NET MAUI.

The DevExpress Popup for Xamarin.Forms allows you to request additional information from a user and/or display app notifications.

You can use the DXPopup to display an alert or notification. An alert is displayed in the center of the screen and prevents interaction with the application. The image below demonstrates an alert displayed in the DevExpress Stock Market Demo App.
