I have an issue with the ListView where having a comment in between the <li> and <a> tags causes the > not to show up.  For example:

<!-- This works -->
<li>
  <a>Foo</a>
</li>
 
<!-- This doesn't work -->
<li>
  <!-- This comment causes the arrow to not appear -->
  <a>Foo</a>
</li>

It seems like in the 2nd case, the comment should be ignored and the > character should still appear for the list item.

Hi Jason,

This behavior is expected. It is caused by the fact that the ListView checks for the first child element and applies the styling, adding a comment there makes the <a> not the only child of the <li> element, and the correct styling is not applied. 

If you put your comment inside the <a> tag then it should work as expected:

<a>Item <!-- This comment works --> </a>

Hi Kiril,

I presumed that was the case, but I'm suggesting that shouldn't be the behavior. As comments are typically not rendered and ignored by the browser, it's not intuitive that a comment would affect the view. It seems more like a bug, or an edge case that wasn't given much thought. Is this something I should add on the Feedback & Feature Requests page?

Thanks,
Jason

Hi Jason,

Thank you very much for your feedback it is highly appreciated. 

Currently we do not consider this as a bug, as it does not break the core functionality of the widget. But I would like to ask you to submit your observations and suggestions for change in the implementation in the uservoice section, so it will be taken into account and considered for a future build. 

Once again thank you very much for bringing this up!
