In an accordion on Xamarin try to hide an AccordionItem because in some cases there nothing to show. I added a binding to IsVisible on the AccordionItem and that hides the item but leaves an empty space. So, it's only invisible, but it is still there.
is there a way to hide AccordionItems, where the empty space is collapsed?

Thanx for the feedback.
I have no further questions about this issue.
One other thing that comes to mind is the documentation of UI for Xamarin Forms. That is a bit sparse to say the least…
I’m used to the documentation of UI for ASP.NET Ajax (using it for years) and compared to that the UI for Xamarin is very incomplete.
A few examples:
The documentation of the Accordion control mentions properties for the Indicator, like IndicatorColor, IndicatorFontSize etc (under AccordeonItem control)
But I have to find out using Intellisense of Visual Studio that there are also properties like SelectedIndicatorColor, SelectedIndicatorFontSize etc. Those aren’t mentioned at all (if I search for it I find a similar property on other controls, like the SlideView, but not the Accordion)
That you can apply border properties like Color and Thickness to the Header and item can only be deduced from the XAM code under ‘AccordeonItem control’, it isn’t mention in the text.
Two examples of lacking documentation I encountered, I’m sure I can find a lot more when using the other controls.
So I’m now first checking the code examples from the Telelrik UI for Xamarin app instead of reading the docs. And that is not how it is supposed to work, I think..
Thank you for sending your comments, much appreciated. I agree that UI for ASP.NET AJAX documentation is more thorough, and one reason behind is the maturity of the product.
We're constantly working on improving the documentation of our Xamarin suite, so any feedback is welcome. I completely agree that checking examples instead of looking into the docs is not the preferred approach.
Straight to the comments regarding Accordion documentation - I am not sure how you came across these properties (SelectedIndicatorColor, SelectedIndicatorFontSize) as they really do not exist for RadAccordionItem, could you check this again?
I have reviewed the topic for AccordionItem Control and there is a mention for border styling properties in the first section, however, there isn't an example. I'll make sure to update it.
If you come across missing content for other controls, please write to us again. Or you could send us directly feedback by clicking on the "Was this article helpful?" link at the bottom of each article.
Regarding the SelectedIndicatorColor: my bad, searching for an example of missing info I mixed up two controls. This property comes from the SlideView, and is described there fairly clearly. Which info I missed instead I can't remember now, but when I find it, or a similar issue I let you know.
Thank you for the follow-up.
We'll be looking forward to any feedback regarding our Xamarin controls' documentation.
