    It would be great to have an empty template for the ListView. I know I can use another element and turn visible on and off, but a template would be much cleaner.

    Hi Craig,

    The reason it's not available for Xamarin.Forms is because not all the individual native control have support for it yet.  However, you can implement it for some by using a custom renderer and using the native control's empty content properties.

    For example,

    - For UWP:  The UWP ListView EmptyContent property does exactly what you're looking for.

    For Android: There is support for EmptyContent, see here.

    - For iOS: There is no current support for EmptyContent. In your custom renderer, you could have your own UIView for the TKListView.BackgroundView property, then when the Items count is more than one you can clear it.

    If you're not sure how to create a custom renderer, you can read up on it here.
