Hey,

on Windows Phone are "long" texts in ImageCells and TextCells cutten. See attachmend. Tested with device and emulator.

My Code:
 <DataTemplate>
  <TextCell Text="{Binding Titel}" TextColor="#FF9C1B"  Detail="{Binding Intro}" DetailColor="#FFFFFF" />
 </DataTemplate>


And:
 <DataTemplate>
  <ImageCell Text="{Binding Name}" TextColor="#FF9C1B"  Detail="{Binding Detail}" DetailColor="#FFFFFF" ImageSource="{Binding Logo}" />
 </DataTemplate>

Maybe it's possible to set the size / font in near future?
Comment 1 Michel Chowanski 2014-08-10 10:15:57 UTC
The same on Windows Phone if i use a ViewCell with a Label - regardless of which LineBreakMode i'm using. Seems to be a general listview bug on Windows Phone with Xamarin.Forms.
Comment 2 Michel Chowanski 2014-08-30 13:56:10 UTC
The ViewCell bug is fixed with version 1.2.3. But not with ImageCell and Textcell. The Text will be cutten ... any updates?

I have checked this issue and I am able to reproduce this behavior.

Steps I followed:

1. Create an Blank App(Xamarin.Forms Portable) project
2. Add a new XAML page. (Name: TextCellDemoPage)
3. Add the following code in .xaml.cs page

 public TextCellDemoPage()
        {
            Label header = new Label
            {
                Text = "TextCell",
                Font = Font.BoldSystemFontOfSize(50),
                HorizontalOptions = LayoutOptions.Center
            };

            TableView tableView = new TableView
            {
                Intent = TableIntent.Form,
                Root = new TableRoot
                {
                    new TableSection
                    {
                        new TextCell
                        {
                            Text = "Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.",
                            Detail = "Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.",
                        },
                        new ImageCell
                        {
                            Text ="Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.",
                            Detail="Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry."
                        }
                    }
                }
            };

            // Accomodate iPhone status bar.
            this.Padding = new Thickness(10, Device.OnPlatform(20, 0, 0), 10, 5);

            // Build the page.
            this.Content = new StackLayout
            {
                Children =
                {
                    header,
                    tableView
                }
            };
        }

4. Build and deploy the project on device/emulator.

Observations: On Windows Phone if we set long text on "Text" and "Detail" property of TextCell and ImageCell the values of these property are cropped.

Note: I am not getting this behavior with android and iOS.

Comment 4 Jason Smith [MSFT] 2015-06-02 14:42:52 UTC
Originally this trimming of text was inconsistent across platforms and only happened on iOS and WP. It now happens on all 3 platforms, by design. If you wish for non-trimming cells, use a ViewCell.
