Custom tableview

Hi everyone,

In previous 0.9 sdk, i was able to do custom tableview with cool background image.
To do so i used something like :

var data = [{title:'my title', backgroundImage:'images/MyPicture.png', 
var template = {layout:[ {type:'text', fontsize: Blabla....}
var tableview = Titanium.UI.createTableView({data:data,
 template:template' ......

But this seems not to work anymore with latest titanium SDK.

Anyone have informations/links about that ?
Thank You very much.

  • Hi Yann. I'm in the same boat; I'm converting my apps from 0.8, and although it's not that different, there's a bunch of stuff that doesn't work as expected :)

    Re. your question

    1. In your sample, you've got the backgroundImage set against a row of data.. don't do it there.. do it in the createTableView call.

    2. If that doesn't work couldn't you make the window/view have a background image, and then make the tableView transparent (using the opaque property)?

    Let us know what works or doesn't work! :)

    • Matt,
      Thanks for your reply.
      I've found on appcelerator a link to a tutorial for custom tableview.
      Seems to be the correct way to do it :

      Best regards,
