How to display Selection background on SelectedItem when BackgroundColor is set for view in ItemTemplate?

Platform: Xamarin.Forms |
Control: SfListView |
Published Date: July 5, 2017 |
Last Revised Date: November 15, 2018

In SfListView, the item background color will not be displayed for the selected item if the background color is defined for DataTemplate and this is the actual behavior in framework. However, it can be achieved through a work around by defining a property in data model and using a custom converter.

In the model class, define a IsSelected property which indicates whether the item is selected or not and it will have updated when the selection is performed using the SelectionChanged event. Based on this property, you can change the background color of View defined in the ItemTemplate property by custom converter class.





You can change the background color of the view based on the IsSelected property using the SelectionBoolToBackgroundColorConverter class.
