Welcome to our Microsoft Q&A platform!

You can use Xamarin.Forms Multi-Bindings with a converter to achieve it.

I write a simiple code to achieve it with your xaml. I notice you used customEditor and customButton, So I make Editor to Button to test it.

I suppose that you have Person class.

public class Person
        public string Name { get; set; }
        public string Age { get; set; }

And you want this class as your command parameter. And you want to get the text from the testCustom1 and testCustom2, So I add Binding with <Binding Path="Text" Source="{x:Reference testCustom1}" />, If you want to get other property from customEditor, just use the property name to fill in the Binding Path="property name"

Your XAML should look like this:

            <local:PersonConverter x:Key="myPersonConverter" />
            <Editor  x:Name="testCustom1" />
            <Editor  x:Name="testCustom2" />

            <Button Text="send" Command="{Binding SharePostCommand}">
                    <MultiBinding Converter="{StaticResource myPersonConverter}">
                            <Binding Path="Text" Source="{x:Reference testCustom1}" />
                            <Binding Path="Text" Source="{x:Reference testCustom2}"/>

And myPersonConverter is a PersonConverter.cs object.

public class PersonConverter : IMultiValueConverter
        public object Convert(object[] values, Type targetType, object parameter, System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture)
            if (values[0]!= null &&values[1]!=null && values.Length == 2)
                string name = values[0].ToString();
                string age = values[1].ToString();

                return new Person { Name = name, Age = age };
            return null;

        public object[] ConvertBack(object value, Type[] targetTypes, object parameter, System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture)
            throw new NotImplementedException();

In the end,you can use Person object as parameter in your SharePostCommand from viewModel:

public ICommand SharePostCommand { protected set; get; }
        public MyViewModel()
            SharePostCommand = new Command<Person>(async (key) => {
                Person person = key as Person;

                if (person != null)
                    Console.WriteLine(person.Name + "===============" + person.Age);
