Description Hrafn Loftsson 2016-10-03 16:07:11 UTC
In iOS, an ActivityIndicator, which is a ViewCell in a ListView, disappears when scrolling. When the ViewCell moves off the visible screen area and back in during scrolling, the indicator is no longer visible.

This has been reported before: https://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/62974/activityindicator-disappears-while-scrolling-in-the-listview

I have made a test project which shows this behaviour: https://github.com/KolibriDev/TestLayoutXaml

Note that this is only a problem in iOS - works in Droid and UWP.

I can confirm this issue.

At the moment, I can't figure out what's causing this. A workaround seems to be setting IsRunning to false and then true. Add this to GetCell of ListViewRenderer:

if ((cell as ViewCell).View is ActivityIndicator)
    ((cell as ViewCell).View as ActivityIndicator).IsRunning = false;
    ((cell as ViewCell).View as ActivityIndicator).IsRunning = true;

Of course, this is not even a hack. If the activity indicator is a child of another element or elements, then you'd need to recursively search for it.
