i recently discovered an issue regarding the ListView behavior while focusing the SearchBar. The workaround is a ListView with a custom section-headerView in it. When focusing the search and type a keyword, which is related by the "searchableText" attribute in the ListItem, the item is found properly, but the related section is not shown (although the "keepSectionsInSearch" attribute is set to true).
- show section headers
- accept custom ListView-styles (backgroundColor, separatorStyle, ..)
- sections headers do not appear
- custom ListView styles are not honored
This is an iOS-specific bug, android works well.
