Swim lanes

Swim lanes are horizontal categorizations that allow you to categorize your current workflow by different projects, teams, users, or whatever you need.

By default, it will be categorized based on Assignee values in KanbanModel class. You can also define category by mapping the SwimlaneKey to appropriate property name in the defined data model.

The following code example shows how to group the underlying data collection based on SwimlaneKey.

<kanban:SfKanban SwimlaneKey="ColorKey" x:Name="Kanban" ItemsSource="{Binding Tasks}">

</kanban:SfKanban>
this.Kanban.SwimlaneKey = "ColorKey";

Swimlane support in UWP SfKanban

NOTE

If there is no value assigned for the SwimlaneKey mapped property in a task, then it will be grouped under Unassigned swim lane.

Customization

SfKanban provides support to customize header, which is displayed before the swim lane group using SwimlaneHeaderTemplate property. The following code example displays image along with name.

  • xaml
  • <kanban:SfKanban x:Name="Kanban" ItemsSource="{Binding Tasks}">
        <kanban:SfKanban.SwimlaneHeaderTemplate>
