.NET MAUI ListView Group Header Template

The ListView has a default group header that is displayed when grouping is applied.

The BindingContext of the GroupHeader is a complex object and it includes the following properties:

  • IsExpanded—Defines a value indicating whether the group is currently expanded (has its child items visible).
  • Items—Gets the child items of the group.
  • Key—Gets the specific for the group key.
  • Level—Gets the zero-based level (or the depth) of the group.

In addition, you can create a custom GroupHeaderTemplate to achieve the desired look when grouping the ListView.

  1. Define the GroupHeaderTemplate:

    <DataTemplate x:Key="ListViewGroupHeaderTemplate">
              <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto" />
              <ColumnDefinition />
          <Label Text="&#x25B8;" Margin="8, 12, 0, 6" TextColor="DarkGray" FontSize="Medium">
                  <DataTrigger TargetType="Label" Binding="{Binding IsExpanded}" Value="True">
                      <Setter Property="Text" Value="&#x25BE;" />
          <Label Margin="0, 12, 0, 6" Text="{Binding Key}" Grid.Column="1" TextColor="DarkGray" FontSize="Medium" HorizontalOptions="Start" />
  2. Set the template to the RadListView:

    <telerik:RadListView x:Name="listView" 
                       ItemsSource="{Binding Cities}"
                       GroupHeaderTemplate="{StaticResource ListViewGroupHeaderTemplate}">
          <telerikListView:PropertyGroupDescriptor PropertyName="Country"/>
