turning off the linker shows the headers
Comment 2 Chris King 2015-07-28 13:14:07 UTC
Thanks for submitting this bug. The headers will not appear in your repro if you enable the linker because there is no early bound reference to the "Key" property on the compiler generated class created in support of the GroupBy method used to partition the Items list. Note that all XAML references are latebound and that's the only spot where the Key is referenced. To work around you must either disable the linker for your solution (you can still keep it enabled for the SDK libraries) or you can add an early bound reference to the Key property like so:

            var gItems = items.OrderBy(x => x.Name).GroupBy(x => x.Name[0]);
            listView.ItemsSource = gItems;
            var foo = gItems.First().Key;

Warm regards,
