GridView / ListView limited Items display RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

     I have a weird behavior of the GridView / ListView large lists in a simple page with a Grid or List View control of the winrt Windows Store app.

    On adding the 30 000 items with the only property say "Name" - all of the items are displayed. But setting the item template size to say - Width=400 Height=100 - only about half of the items are displayed - visible while navigating, at that navigation time while scrolling the items become visible, on scrolling stop - the items become invisible - the list view looks empty, on swiping the list - the consecutive items become visible again, and when the page stops - the items are not visible again!??? If you press and hold the finger on the list the items are visible, released - again invisible!!??

    Could anyone give some views on the matter,

    Thank you in advance

  • That's a heck of a lot of items. Instead of loading them all at once use virtualization to load only the ones actually needed.

  • Additional info:

    public class Item { string Name {get;set;}

    List<Item> Items = new List<Item>();

    private void navigationHelper_LoadState(object sender, LoadStateEventArgs e)
     Item item = null;
     for(int i = 0; i < 35000; i++)
      item = new Item() { Name = "Title" + i};
     this.DefaultViewModel["Items"] = Items;


    Xaml GridView item Template with Width and Height

      <Grid HorizontalAlignment="Left" Width="250" Height="250">
       <StackPanel VerticalAlignment="Bottom" Background="{ThemeResource ListViewItemOverlayBackgroundThemeBrush}">
        <TextBlock Text="{Binding Name}" Foreground="{ThemeResource ListViewItemOverlayForegroundThemeBrush}" Style="{StaticResource BaseTextBlockStyle}" Height="60" Margin="15,0,15,0" FontWeight="SemiBold"/>

    Just 16 500 items are visible and normally scrollable, after this the items are not visible on the list if not srolling??!!

  • Thank you Rob, for the reply.

    So it's too much, I thought of virtualization.. the strange thing is that when you press the list - those items are where, good visible, on stopping - they disappear...it would be not that misleading if the items would not be visible in both cases: normal (static view) and pressed or scrolled ?!

  • Virtualization, or reduced item number, always filtered item list.
