RadListView swipe actions acting strange



Im trying to follow this guide to implement swipe actions:

But what I end up with is this:

When swiping the row, the row is moving as expected but the “mark” and “delete” actions are always visible for some reason. And while trying to swipe on iOS it crashes with this error:

The code so far looks like this:

    [items]="lists$ | async"
    <template tkListItemTemplate let-item="item">
      <StackLayout orientation="vertical">
        <Label class="medium-spacing list-item" [text]="item.name"></Label>
        <StackLayout class="list-divider"></StackLayout>

    <GridLayout *tkListItemSwipeTemplate columns="auto, *, auto" class="gridLayoutLayout">
      <StackLayout id="mark-view" col="0" class="markViewStackLayout" (tap)="onLeftSwipeClick($event)">
        <Label text="mark" class="swipetemplateLabel" verticalAlignment="center" horizontalAlignment="center"></Label>
      <StackLayout id="delete-view" col="2" class="deleteViewStackLayout" (tap)="onRightSwipeClick($event)">
        <Label text="delete" class="swipetemplateLabel" verticalAlignment="center" horizontalAlignment="center"></Label>

And the TS:

onSwipeCellStarted(args: ListViewEventData) {
    const swipeLimits = args.data.swipeLimits;
    const swipeView = args['object'];
    const leftItem = swipeView.getViewById('mark-view');
    const rightItem = swipeView.getViewById('delete-view');
    swipeLimits.left = leftItem.getMeasuredWidth();
    swipeLimits.right = rightItem.getMeasuredWidth();
    swipeLimits.threshold = leftItem.getMeasuredWidth() / 2;

  onLeftSwipeClick(args: ListViewEventData) {
    console.log("Left swipe click");

  onRightSwipeClick(args: ListViewEventData) {
    console.log("Right swipe click");



I had the same issue and solved it by adding padding in the CSS to the classes “markViewStackLayout” and “deleteViewStackLayout”. See https://www.thepolyglotdeveloper.com/2017/03/use-side-drawer-feature-rich-list-view-nativescript-angular-app/ for a full example including CSS.



I know this is an old thread, but this suggestion doesn’t seem to work any more. I’m seeing exactly what this question is seeing. I’m even following the example here. The swipe will work, but the actions will always be showing. I’ve even copied the example exactly and it still doesn’t work. Any suggestions?


Here is what I’m doing:

<ActionBar class="action-bar">
    Use the NavigationButton as a side-drawer button in Android because ActionItems are shown on the right side of the ActionBar
    <NavigationButton ios:visibility="collapsed" icon="res://menu" (tap)="onDrawerButtonTap()"></NavigationButton>
    Use the ActionItem for IOS with position set to left. Using the NavigationButton as a side-drawer button in iOS is not possible, because its function is to always navigate back in the application.
    <ActionItem icon="res://navigation/menu" android:visibility="collapsed" (tap)="onDrawerButtonTap()" ios.position="left">
    <Label class="action-bar-title" text="Dailies"></Label>

RadSideDrawer is a UI component part of the Progress NativeScript UI set of components.
Learn more about the RadSideDrawer UI component and how it can be customized in this documentation article:
The RadSideDrawer component is designed to be used as a root element and
it shouldn't have any other siblings other than the <ActionBar> component.
<RadSideDrawer #drawer showOverNavigation="true" [drawerTransition]="sideDrawerTransition">
    Use the tkDrawerContent directive to display the content of the app drawer on this page.
    <StackLayout tkDrawerContent>
        <MyDrawer [selectedPage]="'Dailies'"></MyDrawer>

    Use the tkMainContent directive to display the content of the page when you have an app drawer.
    <GridLayout class="page page-content" tkMainContent>
        <RadListView [items]="dailies" swipeActions="true" selectionBehavior="None" (itemSwipeProgressEnded)="onSwipeCellFinished($event)"
            (itemSwipeProgressStarted)="onSwipeCellStarted($event)" (itemSwipeProgressChanged)="onCellSwiping($event)"
            class="list-group custom-list-view">
            <ng-template tkListItemTemplate let-item="item">
                <StackLayout orientation="vertical" class="list-group-item">
                    <Label class="nameLabel" [text]="item.name"></Label>
            <GridLayout *tkListItemSwipeTemplate columns="*, auto" class="gridLayoutLayout">
                <StackLayout id="delete-view" col="1" class="deleteViewStackLayout" (tap)="onRightSwipeClick($event)">
                    <Label text="delete" class="swipetemplateLabel" verticalAlignment="center" horizontalAlignment="center"></Label>

I only want actions on one side. I’ve tried it exactly from the example I reference, with the same result–actions are always visible.

This is what I see by the way:
