Ignite UI API Reference

mobile.igListView

mobile.igListView_image

The igListView is a jQuery control that provides list functionality in a mobile environment. The control features templating, filtering, sorting, grouping, load on demand and hierarchical navigation capabilities.

The igListView control extends the igList control and adds hierarchical functionalities.

The igListView control adheres to the jQuery Mobile approach of using markup-based initialization and configuration along with the standard jQuery initialization. For more information on the igListView control’s HTML data-* attributes see igListView Data Attribute Reference.

The following code snippet demonstrates how to initialize the igListView control.
