    yesterday I have downloaded the demo of xamarin forms controls to play around with ListView control. I'm developing an app targeting three platforms.

    I have compiled your solution SDKBrowser.sln, and deployed this on Windows Phone. There was no ListView example available for WP. So I have commented out 


    in Examples.xml file.

    The example is now available but.. it doesn't work. It looks as if items aren't rendered at all. There's only blank space where there should be items. What's wrong? WP is not supported?

    I'm attaching two screenshots: from WP and Android

    Hi Agata,

    The Xamarin.Forms implementation of the Telerik ListView does not support Windows Phone. In one of our next version we plan to introduce support for Windows Universal in the context of Forms. However, as Microsoft plans to retire Windows Phone soon, we do not have plans to introduce support for Windows Phone. We have just updated the ListView for Xamarin product page to better describe the situation: http://www.telerik.com/xamarin-ui/listview

    Do you want to have your say when we set our development plans? Do you want to know when a feature you care about is added or when a bug fixed? Explore the Telerik Feedback Portal and vote to affect the priority of the items

    Thank you for the explanation.

    That's bad news, though :(
