DataGridView.DoubleTap Event

Occurs when a user double taps the grid.

Namespace: DevExpress.XamarinForms.DataGrid

Assembly: DevExpress.XamarinForms.Grid.dll


public event DataGridGestureEventHandler DoubleTap

Event Data

The DoubleTap event handler receives an argument of the DataGridGestureEventArgs type. The following properties provide information specific to this event.

Property Description
RowHandle Gets the grid's row handle.
(Inherited from RowEventArgs)


The DataGridView raises the following events in response to user gestures:




Tap and TapConfirmed

Double Tap

Tap and DoubleTap



The event parameter's Element property allows you to obtain the element that was tapped.

If a user interacts with a data row, the Item property returns the data source's item object to which that row corresponds. To obtain the tapped row handle, use the RowHandle property. If a user double taps a data row that is not selected, the DataGridView.SelectionChanged event is also raised.


This example shows how to create a custom view for the grid's edit form and set up the grid to invoke this form when a user double taps a cell.

The grid is bound to a collection of Employee objects and contains columns to display employee information (photo, name, position, phone, address, hire and birth dates, access level, and information about vacation). A custom edit form will display an employee's photo and name, and contain editors to modify employee's phone and address.

Follow the steps below to implement a custom edit form.

  1. Define a data template to be a content for the edit form page. In this example, it is a Xamarin.Forms.Grid with a set of labels and editors inside. Its BindingContext is an EditRowViewModel object. Use its Item property to access an object that represents a data source's record (Employee) and bind editors to its properties.

    <ContentPage xmlns=""
            <DataTemplate x:Key="CustomEditFormContent">
                            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
                            <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto" />
                            <ColumnDefinition Width="*" />
                        <Image Source="{Binding Path=Item.Photo}" Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="0"/>
                        <StackLayout Orientation="Vertical" Padding="50, 20, 0, 0" Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="1">
                            <Label Text="{Binding Path=Item.Name}"  VerticalOptions="Start"
                                   FontSize="20" FontAttributes="Bold" />
                            <StackLayout Orientation="Horizontal">
                                <Label Text="Phone:"  FontSize="14" WidthRequest="100"
                                       HorizontalOptions="Start" VerticalOptions="Center" />
                                <Editor Text="{Binding Path=Item.Phone, Mode=TwoWay}" 
                                        FontSize="Small" HorizontalOptions="FillAndExpand"/>
                            <StackLayout Orientation="Horizontal">
                                <Label Text="Address:"  FontSize="14" WidthRequest="100"
                                       HorizontalOptions="Start" VerticalOptions="Center" />
                                <Editor Text="{Binding Path=Item.Address, Mode=TwoWay}" 
                                        FontSize="Small" HorizontalOptions="FillAndExpand"/>
        <!-- ... -->
  2. In the grid's DoubleTap event handler, create an EditFormPage instance and pass the specified data template to its constructor as a third parameter.

    <dxg:DataGridView x:Name="grid" ItemsSource="{Binding Orders}" 
        <!-- ... -->
  3. In the App.xaml.cs file, assign a NavigationPage instance to the Application.MainPage property and add the MainPage content page to the navigation stack (the application's root page):

    namespace DataGridExample {
        public partial class App : Application {
            public App() {
                // MainPage = new MainPage();
                MainPage = new NavigationPage(new MainPage());
            // ...
