Mobile ListView do not have a build-in template that will be displayed when there are no items. I assume that you are binding the widget to a remote DataSource via Ajax. Is that correct? In such case please use a client side script - all you need to do is to hook up to the dataBound event of the ListView and check if dataSource.data().length
is equal to zero. If the condition is true append a dummy ListView item that notifies the user that there are no records.
The dummy record will be automatically removed when the dataSource changes (for example when the user searches for another word).
I hope this approach will fit in your scenario.
