Description Bogdan 2017-01-18 17:41:56 UTC
Using TableSections impossible to add AutomationIds
Code example:

                    <views:customView AutomationId="CustomId"
                                            Text="someText" Detail="{Binding ......}"
                                            Command="{Binding ........}"
                                            IsRequired="True" />
Comment 1 Bogdan 2017-01-18 18:01:24 UTC
Actual result: the automationids are ignored and not rendered at runtime

Expected result: elements are present with Ids
Comment 2 Paul DiPietro [MSFT] 2017-02-15 20:30:39 UTC
Could you upload your reproduction? I can't seem to reproduce this and it looks like AutomationId set on a ViewCell inside a TableView/Section seems to exist at runtime.
Comment 3 Bogdan 2017-02-27 14:11:37 UTC
Unfortunately I can't upload project. Could you show example of your code? I'll try to look for issues in mine code?
Comment 4 Bogdan 2017-04-14 10:40:17 UTC
Any updates?
Comment 5 Bogdan 2017-04-14 10:47:37 UTC
Could you point where I can find correct code?
