If you create a UIViewElement (which is really awesome), when set to transparent can still be selected which makes it look awful. Can a SelectionStyle property be added to this element in order to set the UITableViewCellSelectionStyle? Or alternatively (but less flexible) is that when the UIViewElement is set to transparent that it's SelectionStyle is automatically set to UITableViewCellSelectionStyle.None.

This suggestion can be closed I guess.

    public class CustomViewElement : UIViewElement
        public CustomViewElement(string caption, UIView view) : base(caption, view, true)

        public override UITableViewCell GetCell(UITableView tv)
            var cell = base.GetCell(tv);
            cell.SelectionStyle = UITableViewCellSelectionStyle.None;
            return cell;
