dataForm.BindingContext = new GettingStartedModel();

2. Define the ViewModel:

public class GettingStartedModel : NotifyPropertyChangedBase
    private string firstName;
    private string lastName;
    private DateTime? startDate;
    private TimeSpan? startTime;
    private double? people = 1;
    private bool visited;
    private TimeSpan? duration;
    private EnumValue accommodation = EnumValue.Apartment;
    public enum EnumValue

    [Display(Name = "Select accomodation")]
    public EnumValue Accommodation
            return this.accommodation;
            if (this.accommodation != value)
                this.accommodation = value;

    [Display(Name = "First Name")]
    public string FirstName
        get => this.firstName;
        set => this.UpdateValue(ref this.firstName, value);

    [Display(Name = "Last Name")]
    public string LastName
        get => this.lastName;
        set => this.UpdateValue(ref this.lastName, value);

    [Display(Name = "Star date")]
    public DateTime? StartDate
        get => this.startDate;
        set => this.UpdateValue(ref this.startDate, value);

    [Display(Name = "Time")]
    public TimeSpan? EndDate
        get => this.startTime;
        set => this.UpdateValue(ref this.startTime, value);

    [Display(Name = "Number of People")]
    public double? People
        get => this.people;
        set => this.UpdateValue(ref this.people, value);

    [Display(Name = "Visited before")]
    public bool Visited
        get => this.visited;
        set => this.UpdateValue(ref this.visited, value);

    [Display(Name = "Duration")]
    public TimeSpan? Duration
        get => this.duration;
        set => this.UpdateValue(ref this.duration, value);
