Sample Project

Our customer is facing an issue with GroupedHeader in ListView when using Xamarin.Forms

We are experiencing an issue with the Xamarin.Form listview control that seems to occur when we use Grouping Header. Specifically, when the header row is the very last row that is visible on the screen, the following exception is thrown:

Xamarin.Forms.Platform.iOS.ListViewRenderer+ListViewDataSource.SetCellBackgroundColor(UIKit.UITableViewCell cell, UIKit.UIColor color)
Xamarin.Forms.Platform.iOS.ListViewRenderer+ListViewDataSource.RowSelected(UIKit.UITableView tableView, Foundation.NSIndexPath indexPath)
UIKit.UIApplication.Main(System.String[] args, IntPtr principal, IntPtr delegate)UIApplication.cs:62
UIKit.UIApplication.Main(System.String[] args, System.String principalClassName, System.String delegateClassName)UIApplication.cs:45
NOVAmobile.iOS.Application.Main(System.String[] args)Main.cs:26

For example, if you click on the row header "Starting at 1:30 PM", the exception is thrown

Once you scroll the data up so that there is at least one row under the header visible on the screen and click on the exact same header row, the exception no longer occurs.

I'm assuming it is trying to set the selected color for the first row under the group but is unable to when it is not visible on the screen.

Please advise as to if there is a workaround to this issue and/or when you expect this issue to be resolved as soon as possible. We have an upcoming release in the next couple days, and as of now, the application simply crashes with no indication to the user as to what happened.

Thanks for the report, bug is pretty obvious to see. UITableView.CellAt can return null and this case is improperly handled.
Comment 3 Chris King 2015-06-05 19:27:32 UTC
Fix ready.
Comment 4 Jason Smith [MSFT] 2015-08-03 10:02:15 UTC
Should be fixed in 1.4.5-pre1
Comment 5 Udham Singh 2015-08-06 07:32:28 UTC
I have checked this issue with the help of sample project attached in bug description with Xamarin.Forms. and observed that this issue has been fixed with Xamarin.Forms.
