Allowing items in SfListView to focus


I'm making an app for the Amazon Fire TV and would like to use your SfListView control. The Xamarin Forms component ListView doesn't allow focusing on items, however using a custom renderer for Android and using Control.ItemsCanFocus = true and Control.Focusable = true allows the items to be focusable.

For example, if you're using a remote control and go down, the items should highlight as each item is focused in the list. Pressing the select button will select the item in the list.

It doesn't seem there is an SfListViewRenderer, and even if there was the SfListView doesn't inherit ListView, but Grid (could be wrong with that).

But in short, how do I allow the items using SfListView to be focusable?!

Sorry for the delay caused. 
We would like to inform you that SfListView doesn’t have default property to set focus. We are currently checking for the possibility to achieve in renderer. We will update further details and confirm you the possibility to achieve in renderer on or before April 12, 2019. We will appreciate your patience until then.
