Is it possible to have a VariableSizedGridView with virtualization? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am creating a Windows Phone 8.1 (WinRT) application. The mainpage template is a two GridView (2 grids per row) and the height of grid varies (one item might occupy one row and other might occupy two rows). The design is similar to the pinterest app (pin.it) except the varying height in pinterest app. I was able to achieve it using VariableSizedGridView and I did lazy loading as well. But I could find that there is no virtualization because of which the memory goes on increasing on scrolling down. Can you suggest me the how to achieve variable sized grid with virtualization like the pinterest app?

    Thank you,

  • Hi,

    Sorry for the late response. There are no curren plans to improve the Windows 8.1 controls. All our controls are opensourced under https://github.com/wasteam/waslibs you can fork to the source code and improve it in the way you want. The VariableSizedGrid control is located here. You can contribute to the libraries or use the source code by your own.

    Best regards!
