Section Title issue in MarkupList

Tue Jun 19, 2018 2:13 am

Section Title is not visible if I am using vertFocusAnimationStyle = floatingFocus or vertFocusAnimationStyle = fixedFocus. 
As per documentation it should work with the fixedFocus value. 


Also, Section title is not visible even after using the value fixedFocusWrap, you need to press the up key to see the section title. (Also the disadvantage of using fixedFocusWrap is that it creates infinite loop on up/down key press, we can't release focus on up/down key press)
Not able to use this component because of these bugs. 

Can someone please help?

There is no MarkupList example also which is working fine with multiple sections. If someone has please do share.

Using fixedFocusWrap with focusRow="1" somewhat fixes the section title issue.

The clue is the word "wrap" .. It is going to infinitely wrap.

Say your area to display can only show 4 items at any time.
If you have only 4 or less items to display don't use fixedfocuswrap instead use floatingfocus and manually control the wrapping yourself in an onkeyevent.
If you have more than 4 items to display in that area use the fixedfocuswrap and get the benefit of the wrapping built-into the interface.

This is how I always do that to make it less crazy.

To not open a new thread - there is a bug with MarkupList when using "floatingFocus" vertFocusAnimationStyle - sections aren't rendered. It works properly only with "fixedFocusWrap". It looks like this bug occurs for at least one year.


By the way, there is wrong info in the docs. The default value of the vertFocusAnimationStyle property is "fixedFocusWrap" while the docs says it's "floatingFocus".

Guys from Roku, do you plan to do something with this?

Edit: Problem occurs also for MarkupGrid

@owen777 might be the same bug causing this: https://forums.roku.com/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=152839&p=644466

Using "blanks" to pad around to get things to render properly is technically a hack but it fixes the bug or is it a feature?

@speechles it's a different problem. In the end I worked around it by adding additional section info into the first item of every section and resigning from sections, but of course it's a huge hack. As huge as the bug is.
