The Text of a Label in a StackLayout, in a ViewCell.View overflow out of the ListView.ItemTemplate.
Comment 1 Chris King 2015-07-29 12:41:12 UTC
Thanks for submitting this issue. You can cause the view cell to measure it's contents before deciding on its height by specifying HasUnEvenRows as so:

 		<ListView x:Name="itemListView" HasUnevenRows="true">

This is not the default for performance reasons; measuring the height of cells takes time and in some instance can slow the list view down to an unacceptable degree.

Warm regards,

Chris, I had a talk with Jeremy. He knows about HasUnevenRows. The problem is, when there is a StackLayout in the ViewCell, there's no clipping, like it should be.

Reopening then.

After doing some investigation, that's truly how StackLayout is supposed to work, an dit works slightly differently from a Grid.

By default, a StackLayout doesn't clip to bounds, but you can enable that behavior easily:

    <StackLayout VerticalOptions="Fill" IsClippedToBounds="true">

The fact that it's clipped in Android is inherent to the difference between platforms.

Hope it helps.
