I am using a common ViewModel/Model/Services library that is shared between a WPF project and Xamarin Forms project.
When I retrieve a fresh list of a large number of items, I clear the items (derives from ObservableCollection) on the UI thread, then add a bunch of items to the collection NOT on the UI Thread, then call the following on the UI Thread:
For WPF and non_telerik ListView, this works great and I don't have to jam up the UI Thread with every single Add to the collection. For the RadListView, this doesn't work and I end up with an empty list (from a view perspective). Now, if I just call Add for every single item on the UI thread, the RadListView updates, but it jams up the UI thread and has a bad UX (you can see each item added being added visually).
In the code behind, I even listened for any NotifyCollectionChangedAction.Reset events, and then remove and set the ItemsSource binding, and that doesn't work either.
Any tips on getting this working without having to call Add on the UI thread for every item? This is literally the only thing in the way from me 'shouting on the rooftops' why everyone should use Telerik Xamarin Forms controls.
