Description Taylor 2017-08-16 15:53:06 UTC
I am using Xamarin and trying to initialize a ListView's selection programatically using the SelectedItem property. While it appears the ListView seems to accept the specified value for SelectedItem, the selected item is not highlighted which is the expected behavior.  I have tested this in UWP and Android with the same results.

For demonstration purposes, you can use the project download below.  In the interactiveListViewCode constructor, I have added the following line immediately after the lstView.ItemsSource = items line.

lstView.SelectedItem = items[0];


This appears to be a bug however please advise if the listview selection highlight needs to be initialized in a different manner.  If this is a bug, is there a workaround?
