On Android and iOS it works correct. Only on UWP

Parameter for CreateDefault should be the currentItem not currentItem.ToString()
Comment 1 h.ulutas 2016-05-27 14:31:09 UTC
The importance level should be revised. Because this bug completely prevent override CreateDefault method and customize the behavior of list. And it was not exist on previous versions, produced by new version.

This will be looked at as it is a regression.
Comment 3 Samantha Houts [MSFT] 2016-07-19 01:36:41 UTC
Should be fixed in 2.3.2-pre1. Thanks!

I have checked this issue with Xamarin.Forms and I am still facing same issue.
This issue is working fine with X.F

Screencast: http://www.screencast.com/t/gG5JGUdGRd

Hence reopened this issue.

My reported bug is fixed but the BindingContext(DataContext) for the Label(TextBox) isn't applied correct. It is the ViewCell not my ViewModel.

This is a different behavior then on iOS and Android.
Comment 6 Samantha Houts [MSFT] 2016-08-08 17:48:23 UTC
@Pascal It looks like your sample will work as expected if you uncomment the line you've added to set the BindingContext to the item.

            templateCell.BindingContext = item;
Comment 7 Pascal Empl 2016-08-09 06:49:24 UTC
@Samantha, i know if i use "templateCell.BindingContext = item" that it works but there are still two reasons why this is a bug.

In the documentation for ListView.CreateDefault it is said that the BindingContext will be set automatically.

See in the Remarks: https://developer.xamarin.com/api/member/Xamarin.Forms.ListView.CreateDefault/p/System.Object/

This doesn't happen for UWP and that is the second reason as it is a different behavior then on iOS and Android.

Setting the BindingContext in CreateDefault can only be temporary fix.

@Pascal You're right! I think I see where the problem is. Thank you!
Comment 9 Rui Marinho 2016-08-11 09:40:37 UTC
Should be fixed in 2.3.2-pre2
Comment 10 Parmendra Kumar 2016-09-15 14:42:57 UTC
I have checked this issue with Xamarin.Forms and its working fine.

Hence closing this issue.
