Sample App

Initially when you enter the screen view of the list view it does not focus to the bottom of the list when the list contains more information that can be displayed on the screen view. When the list has a significant amount of content. It scrolls through the list until it gets to the bottom. Is there any way of just displaying the bottom without scrolling? That may alleviate the problem. If you leave the screen view with the listview, and then go back to that screen view, the list does focus at the bottom of the list.

It can be replicated easily. The Repro App is like a chat software where ListView gets populated with messages. When user exist the application and comes back, the ListView gets stuck somewhere in the middle and does not scroll till the bottom / last message. However if the user navigate to some other screen within the App and comes back .. it works just fine.

This is probably a duplicate of this bug. 


Its been broken for months and there is no workaround.  My chat app is stuck because of this.
