how to dynamically update listview based on values of class

I am developing a contact book application wherein I have a listview with a add button. On clicking the add button it redirects the user to a modal page asking for it's name, email id, institution. All of this details are saved in a ContactDetails class. On clicking done button on the modal page I want to display the contents in my listview.

Any suggestions on how to implement this successfully.

Code am currently working on are as follows:

public class ContactDetails
    public string Name { get; set; }
    public string Inst { get; set; }
    public string EmailId { get; set;}  
    public int Mob { get; set;}


public partial class ContactDetailsModalPage: ContentPage
    CandidateDetails cd = new CandidateDetails();
    async void OnDoneClicked(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
        cd.Name = (string)candNameEntry.Text; 
        cd.Inst = (string)candInst.Text;
        cd.EmailId = (string)candEmailId.Text;
        cd.Mob = Convert.ToInt32(candMobNumber.Text);

        List<ContactDetails> candList = new List<ContactDetails>();

        await Navigation.PopModalAsync();


    public CandidateDetailsModalPage()


I am not able to understand as to what should I provide as the itemsource for my listview so that it can dynamically display the value that are stored in the ContactDetails class by modal page.
