All my efforts so far generate errors outside my code.

Here is sample (EntityEntry is a struct with Name and Id properties, Entries is a list of them):

            foreach(string key in dictionary.Keys)
            {
                Entries.Add(new EntityEntry { Name = key, Id = dictionary[key] });
            }

            Grid grid = new Grid();
            Label label = new Label
            {
                FontSize = 15D,
                FontAttributes = FontAttributes.Bold,
            };
            label.SetBinding(Label.TextProperty, "Name");
            grid.Children.Add(label);
            ListViewTemplateCell lt = new ListViewTemplateCell() { View = grid};
            DataTemplate dt = new DataTemplate(() => lt.View);

            EntitiesLv = new RadListView
            {
                Background = Colors.PaleTurquoise,
                HorizontalOptions = LayoutOptions.Fill,
                IsItemsReorderEnabled = false,
                ItemTemplate = dt,
                ItemsSource = Entries,
                LayoutDefinition = new ListViewGridLayout
                {
                    HorizontalItemSpacing = 5D,
                    VerticalItemSpacing = 5D
                },
                LoadOnDemandBufferItemsCount = 5,
                LoadOnDemandMode = LoadOnDemandMode.Automatic,
                Margin = new Thickness(10, 10),
                SelectionMode = SelectionMode.Single,
                VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.Fill,
                VerticalScrollBarVisibility = ScrollBarVisibility.Default,
            };
            EntitiesLv.GestureRecognizers.Add(new TapGestureRecognizer { Command = ListTapped, NumberOfTapsRequired = 1 });
            EntitiesLv.SelectionChanged += EntitiesLvOnSelectionChanged;

Error occurs if ItemTemplate and ItemsSource are both set, but not if just one is.

All help appreciated.

Hello David,

Thank you for your interest in Telerik UI for .NET MAUI.

To solve the issue, the DataTemplate should always return a new View, in this case a Grid.

You can try the code below:

ItemTemplate = new DataTemplate(() =>
{
  return new ListViewTemplateCell
  {
    View = GetCellContent()
  };
}),

public View GetCellContent()
{
  Grid grid = new Grid();

  Label label = new Label
  {
    FontSize = 15D,
    FontAttributes = FontAttributes.Bold,
    Text = "Random Text"
  };

  grid.Children.Add(label);
  return grid;
}

 

You can find more information about the DataTemplate and ListViewTemplateCell from our documentation below:

https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/maui/controls/listview/cells/listview-templatecell

I hope this sheds some light on this case. Let me know if I can provide any further assistance.

Regards,
Antoan

Honestly, I fail to see much difference in the two above approaches for a DataTemplate, as the latter just moves some of the former's logic to a separate procedure (and messes with the item's text). But I do appreciate seeing any and all suggestions. Thank you.

I got around the DataTemplate problem by including these ItemStyle and SelectedItemStyle styles within my App.xaml Style for RadListPicker ("telData is my reference "xmlns:telData="clr-namespace:Telerik.XamarinForms.DataControls;assembly=Telerik.Maui.Controls.Compatibility":

                <Setter Property="ItemStyle">
                    <Setter.Value>
                        <Style TargetType="telData:SpinnerItemView">
                            <Setter Property="BackgroundColor" Value="White"/>
                            <Setter Property="FontAttributes" Value="Bold" />
                            <Setter Property="FontFamily" Value="OpenSansRegular" />
                            <Setter Property="FontSize">
                                <Setter.Value>
                                    <OnIdiom x:TypeArguments="x:Double" Phone="10" Desktop="24" Default="16" />
                                </Setter.Value>
                            </Setter>
                            <Setter Property="TextColor" Value="Green"/>
                        </Style>
                    </Setter.Value>
                </Setter>

                <Setter Property="SelectedItemStyle">
                    <Setter.Value>
                        <Style TargetType="telData:SpinnerItemView">
                            <Setter Property="BackgroundColor" Value="AliceBlue"/>
                            <Setter Property="FontAttributes" Value="Bold" />
                            <Setter Property="FontFamily" Value="OpenSansRegular" />
                            <Setter Property="FontSize">
                                <Setter.Value>
                                    <OnIdiom x:TypeArguments="x:Double" Phone="14" Desktop="30" Default="20" />
                                </Setter.Value>
                            </Setter>
                            <Setter Property="TextColor" Value="Red"/>
                        </Style>
                    </Setter.Value>
                </Setter>
