I am using Xamarin 126.96.36.1996 and trying to initialize a ListView's selection programatically using the SelectedItem property. While it appears the ListView seems to accept the specified value for SelectedItem, the selected item is not highlighted which is the expected behavior. I have tested this in UWP and Android with the same results.
For demonstration purposes, you can use the project download below. In the interactiveListViewCode constructor, I have added the following line immediately after the lstView.ItemsSource = items line.
lstView.SelectedItem = items;
This appears to be a bug however please advise if the listview selection highlight needs to be initialized in a different manner. If this is a bug, is there a workaround?
