Description Dániel Buga 2017-04-13 07:33:21 UTC
The following snippet results in a list view where the elements have a bottom-only margin. Problem is present in 2.3.5-beta1, on both Windows and Android. When the label is nested in a frame, the margin is added correctly on all sides.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<ContentPage xmlns="http://xamarin.com/schemas/2014/forms"

            <generic:List x:TypeArguments="system:String" x:Key="ListViewItems">

                    <Label Text="{Binding .}" Margin="5" />

Created attachment 21558 [details]
repro project

I was able to reproduce this issue using the project that I've attached.

The controls in the ViewCell do not appear to correctly use the margin set in the Xaml, even if they are inside a layout. However, if they are wrapped in a Frame, then the margins are correct.

This is happening on iOS, Android and UWP. I am confirming this report and the team will investigate further.

### Version Tests
2.3.5-pre1  BAD   BAD   BAD

### Workaround
Wrap the controls in a Frame

Thank you for confirming.

Although I haven't tried your attached repro project, my own code is working (well, based on your tests I should say 'seems to work', at least visually it's good) as intended on, at least on PC UWP (the only thing I can try right now) and breaks on when nothing else is changed but the XF packages.
