Layout Customizations in Xamarin Popup (SfPopupLayout)

The SfPopupLayout supports two types of SfPopupLayout.PopupView.AppearanceMode. By default, the AppearanceMode.OneButton is set. You can change the appearance by using the SfPopupLayout.PopupView.AppearanceMode property.

The two different appearance modes in the SfPopupLayout are as follows:

Modes Description

OneButton

Shows the SfPopupLayout with one button in the footer view. This is the default value.

TwoButton

In the following code example, set the SfPopupLayout.PopupView.AppearanceMode property as OneButton which displays only the Accept button in the footer view.
