                <syncfusion:ShapeFileLayer x:Name="shapeFileLayer"   
                                           Uri="DBFLabelDemo.Assets.Continent.shp"                                                               
                                           LabelPath="CONTINENT" FontSize="14">
                </syncfusion:ShapeFileLayer>
            </syncfusion:SfMap.Layers>
        </syncfusion:SfMap>

    The labels can also be customized by modifying the ItemsTemplate of ShapeFileLayer. The labels can be accessed by using DBFData as follows:

  • html
  • <syncfusion:SfMap>
            <syncfusion:SfMap.Layers>
                <syncfusion:ShapeFileLayer x:Name="shapeFileLayer" 
                                           Uri="DBFLabelDemo.Assets.Continent.shp"
                                           LabelPath="CONTINENT">
                    <syncfusion:ShapeFileLayer.ItemsTemplate>
                        <DataTemplate>
                            <Grid Background="Gray" Opacity="0.75">
                                <TextBlock Text="{Binding DBFData[CONTINENT]}"
                                           FontSize="14" Margin="10 5"/>
                            </Grid>
                        </DataTemplate>
                    </syncfusion:ShapeFileLayer.ItemsTemplate>
                </syncfusion:ShapeFileLayer>
