Is there any way to influence the virtualization of a list? RRS feed

  • Question

  • The virtualization of list or grid is fantastic. We rely on this feature to make lists of large data viable.  I am wondering there is any way to control how many containers are created and maintained.  

    Here is an example.  When a list of an app shows 8 item on the screen, I notice that 8 containers are created instantly.  A few seconds later, additional 25 or so will be created. When the list is scrolled, a few more will be created and recycling of old container will start. About 40 containers are maintained for a list with 8 items shown on the screen. I want to reduce the number of maintained containers (e.g below 15).  Is there any way to do this without getting into data virtualization? I understand there may be some cost of UI responsiveness for doing this.

  • I am sorry for posting this to a wrong group.  Could the moderator move this to "Windows Store apps  >  Building Windows Store apps with C# or VB"?

    My apology.
