Hi, I created a list from a csv file and I tried to use it with ListPicker. The program simply pints the choice, but when I choose the element number 36 or higher it doesn't work. Is there any limit for Lists or ListPicker? 

Please help me to solve that. 

Thanks

How many elements are you adding, what is their content / length ?

If a very long list, it may make sense to break things up and use a nested listpicker approach:


or for alphabetical:

I have about 40 elements (that could increase), mostly of compound names and numbers, like products.

How can I use these nested approach reading a csv file?

Thanks for your attention.

See the links i provided. You will need to carry out some list manipulation, and use your imagination :)

40 elements is not much.

You probably have something that breaks the data load.

Here's a much bigger list load and lookup ...

Thanks ABG and Tim, very useful informations! Anyway I solved, it was a conflict with other data in another list.
