Description Stuart Schechter 2014-12-14 19:38:56 UTC
The constructor for Xamarin.Forms.ItemsView<TVisual> is internal, thereby preventing those who would want to extend it from doing so.  This appears to make it impossible for users who want to created their own views that track items with adapters from doing so.

Oops-- by "adapters" I meant DataTemplates.
