  • IndicatorLocation(ExpandCollapseIndicatorLocation)—Positions the indicator to the left or to the right inside the Header;

            <Setter Property="BackgroundColor" Value="#CEBEE7" />
            <Setter Property="BorderColor" Value="#CEBEE7" />
            <Setter Property="BorderThickness" Value="2" />
        <VerticalStackLayout Margin="8, 12"
            <HorizontalStackLayout Spacing="8">
                <telerik:RadCheckBox />
                <Label Text="Make my profile private"
                       VerticalTextAlignment="Center" />
            <Grid ColumnDefinitions="Auto, *">
