ListView.ItemAppearing works for a ViewCell but not triggered for a cell having custom renderer.

The ItemAppearing event for ListView is triggered for a ListView with ViewCell itemTemplate whose item template has not been rendered in iOS or Android but is not triggered when the ViewCell is rendered in iOS or Android?

projectsListView.ItemAppearing += (object sender, ItemVisibilityEventArgs e) => {
Console.WriteLine("Item appearing called");
The console message is printed when a "non-rendered" is passed as item template. Observed in Xamarin.Forms 1.4.3. Is it something to be implemented in the renderer?

This implementation is required to find if the list reached the end-of-scroll.Is there any other way in XF to find the same?

    I got the same problem.
    My listview is also using a native custom viewcell renderer.
    But the ListView's "ItemAppearing" event seems only triggered on Android viewcell renderer but not on iOS.
    Hoping someone could provide a solution or some workaround for this :)

    My solution here is renderer the ListView also.

    Use the scroll view delegate method, like this :
    public void Scrolled(UIScrollView scrollView)
    var height = (Control as UITableView).Frame.Size.Height;
    var distanceFromButton = (Control as UITableView).ContentSize.Height - (Control as UITableView).ContentOffset.Y;

    if (distanceFromButton == height && (Element as LHBaseListView).CanLoadMoreData)        
        if ((Element as LHBaseListView).LoadMoreCommand != null &&
                    (Element as LHBaseListView).LoadMoreCommand.CanExecute(null))
            (Element as LHBaseListView).LoadMoreCommand.Execute(null);


    To notify list view scroll to the end, and then to notify LoadMoreCommand(self defined) execute.
    if you need to know which item it scrolled to (which item is appearing), i think you need to calculate the item height and list content size.
