Issue with Pre-selection

Manickam, Suraj 220 Reputation points

I need to preselect the list if it has only one item , i tried the one suggested in the MAUI official docs but it never seemed to work for me . I tried by manually setting the following in the constructor of the code behind of the view, if(viewModel.list.count==1) collectionView.SelectedItem=viewModel.list[0]; But it does not preselect it , is there any other way?

    Please do not initialize multiple times in ItemSource, it will make Pre-selection not working.

    By the way, for windows, there is a known issue reported at GitHub- Custom selection styles for items in CollectionView are ignored when programmatically selecting an item · Issue #18933 · dotnet/maui ( .

    Thanks for your update.
