Modifying Xamarin Lists with Custom Controls

I was recently creating a proof of concept, which as you know should be fast and easy.  Not so much at Falafel where we like to turn out quality softwaSiteCoreFullLinesre that looks great, even if we’re going to throw it away.  Good engineering is in your blood, or it isn’t.

In any case, I created a list of our available positions and iTunes did its normal “thing” by placing the line between each entry indented on the left and running all the way to the right side.

Really. Take out your phone and check.

Matt, our designer, thought this looked unbalanced and wanted the lines to extend all the way to the margins in both directions.

Custom Controls

No problem, just a bit of customization required.  The two custom controls I needed were a replacement for LinkedList and a replacement for ViewCell.
