Description Edward Brey 2017-08-21 14:08:28 UTC
The docs for TableSectionBase<Cell> say this:

"You can assign a header and a footer either as strings (Header and Footer) properties, or as Views to be shown (HeaderView and FooterView). Internally this uses the same storage, so you can only show one or the other."
https://developer.xamarin.com/api/type/xamarin.forms.tablesectionbase%3Ct%3E/

Being able to provide a custom view for the header or footer is very useful. However, it's not obvious how to do so. The docs mention HeaderView and FooterView, but I can't find those. The docs should be more clear on how to create custom headers and footers.
