View cannot be brought to front in Xamarin.Forms.
In Xamarin.Android I could bring a view to front using the method View.BringToFront(). However in forms was not able to do that. My application is basically like a table view and I would wish to keep the first row always on top of the other views. Hence I need a solution to bring the View to front. Is there a solution for this?
