Hi Grant, 

Greetings from Syncfusion support!! 

We have analyzed your sample. If you want to initialize the list view with empty data, then you need to bind empty data source to list view. 

We have modified the sample for binding the empty data source when click the ‘Initialize with no data’ button. 

Please check the above the sample and let us know if we misunderstood your query.

There's no fix for this issue in the updated code - you're just hiding the issue. I've reverted the sandbox code (https://codesandbox.io/s/wnm3yzj6m5). 

Below is a better description of how to see the issue:
  • Click the "Open in New Window" button for the running code

  • Display the console for the new window (F12)

  • Click the 'Initialize with data' button
    Note that 2 console logs are displayed ✔

  • Click the 'Initialize with no data' 
    Note that 1 console log is displayed, followed by a JS error (Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'parentNode' of undefined)❌

  • Un-check the 'Virtualized' checkbox

  • Click the 'Initialize with no data' button
    Note that 2 console logs are displayed ✔

Hi Grant,  
We regret for the inconvenience.  
We have analyzed your online sample and your given information. We have confirmed that this is a bug in ListView. We have logged a defect report for the same.

Hi Grant, 

Thanks for being patient. 

We have fixed the reported issue in enabling the virtualization with empty data source using onPropertyChange. The fix is included in the version v17.1.42 and you can now access it without getting any console error. We suggest you upgrade to the latest version to resolve the issue.    
Let us know if you need any further assistance on this.
