Xamarin Studio 5.9.7
Xamarin Forms

List views on devices running Android M appear to have extra padding surrounding the list view content. Here's a video that displays the problem:


I've attached a Xamarin project that recreates the issue when running on an Android device on M.

We are having the same issue here. Tested on my Nexus 5 running Android 6.0

For this attachment: 
- Unzip, open in Xamarin, restore project

I have this bug since July:


And it still exists on the latest xamarin forms release.

Just to clarify a bit more on this issue:

If I choose to compile targeting a lower Android API (22 or below), this bug does not exist on M devices. Additionally, this issue does not seem to exist while using an older version of forms (, even if targeting api 23.

Also, I would recommend explicitly setting an override API version for "Target Android version" if attempting to reproduce/work through this issue. "Automatic - use target framework" caused some headaches.

Any update on this bug? It makes our app quite unusable and is really annoying...
Comment 7 Jason Smith [MSFT] 2015-10-26 14:33:03 UTC
No worries, we are looking into it
Comment 8 Jason Smith [MSFT] 2015-10-28 04:58:20 UTC
