ListView of Xamarin is designtime capable. This means you can define an array
in the xaml and assign that as itemsSource for displaying items during design
... rest of code
ListView will display two items in the designer and bind to the real collection
“Entries” at runtime.
your SfListView does not behave like that and can not be used during design
time. This makes the usage and styling of pages using your lists more complex
than necessary because I always have to startup the application, change to the
correct page just to style and correct the content.
It would be
very nice if you can make your listview designtime capable.
Hint to the
ListView uses a “IEnumerable” instead of just an object as the type of
ItemsSource property which seems to lead the designer-tool not to pass the
designtime data in.
