Overview

Mendix listview with finegrained control over react elements and rendering

Documentation

React Native customisable flatlist

Description

This is a custom listview widget for use in Native projects. With this widget, you have fine grained control over the amount of items shown and how they are rendered while opening a page with a listview. This widget includes all the options that React Native offers for the Flatlist component, on which this widget is based. All these options are now changeable from the modeler, so you don't have to dive into the code yourself.

Instead of a flatlist, you can enable using a scrollview with this widget. This could be useful when having nested lists on your page. With a scrollview all items are rendered at once.

Typical usage scenario

This widget was build to improve performance when dealing with larger amounts of items on a native listview page. Also, with the getItemLayout, scrolling performance is greatly improved.
