This documentation topic describes legacy technology. We no longer develop new functionality for the GridControl and suggest that you use the new DataGridView control instead.

The DevExpress Grid for Xamarin is a powerful editing and data shaping component for working with tabular data on modern mobile devices that utilize the iOS or Android operating systems. It supports the Xamarin.Forms technology and allows you to create native mobile applications in C#. The GridControl enables a flexible UI with a wide-variety of features, allowing your end-users to easily and intuitively manage large amounts of data. It also exposes a comprehensive set of properties, methods and events that can help you develop feature-rich applications.
