Description Caan Mee 2015-11-11 07:46:15 UTC
I have a ListView in Android where all cells have different Colors.

When I set the SeparatorVisibility to "None" there is still a seperator between the cells (1px), which has the color of the Background (red in the screenshot).


public class App : Application
        public App()
            var listview = new ListView
                                   SeparatorColor = Color.Transparent,
                                   SeparatorVisibility = SeparatorVisibility.None,
                                   ItemsSource = new List<Color> { Color.Black, Color.Blue, Color.Green, Color.White },
                                   ItemTemplate = new DataTemplate(() => this.GetViewCell())

            this.MainPage = new ContentPage
                                    Content =
                                        new StackLayout
                                                BackgroundColor = Color.Red,
                                                VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.FillAndExpand,
                                                Children = { listview }

        private ViewCell GetViewCell()
            var layout = new StackLayout();
            layout.SetBinding(VisualElement.BackgroundColorProperty, ".");
            var viewCell = new ViewCell { Height = 300, View = layout };

            return viewCell;

Still an issue in
Comment 3 John Hardman 2016-09-01 10:17:18 UTC
I see this on both Android and iOS (but not UWP).
Comment 4 adrianknight89 2016-09-24 04:44:43 UTC
I don't see this problem in (at least on Android). Can you re-test?
Comment 5 David Ortinau [MSFT] 2017-09-01 02:22:11 UTC
Confirmed this is working as expected in 2.4.0-pre2
