The striped background is plain white when running an app on the iPad instead of the striped one. This is an issue that many developers which to see fixed and has been there for a long while.

    Tjeu In order for us to progress this, we need code that demonstrates the issue, and logs that show any resulting exceptions. Also, we need the build date and hash of the SDK being used. Please read the [Jira Ticket Checklist](http://wiki.appcelerator.org/display/guides/Contributing+to+Titanium#ContributingtoTitanium-Summary%3AJiraTicketChecklist) to find out what is required in order for a ticket to be accepted. Thank you

    Paul It has been in every iPhone SDK I have used, and I've heard from other people they had the same problem too. The problem occurs when I create a tableView: var tableView = Titanium.UI.createTableView({ style: Ti.UI.iPhone.TableViewStyle.GROUPED, data: data }); Now on the iPhone you get a nice striped background, but if you run the app as an iPad app on your iPad, the background is plain white, which should be striped too.

    Tjeu I am sorry if this sounds pedantic, but I cannot accept this ticket unless it contains a proper usecase, that follows the guide at [Creating Good Use-cases](http://wiki.appcelerator.org/display/guides/Contributing+to+Titanium#ContributingtoTitanium-CreatingGoodUsecases) and that you have specifically tested and confirmed it reproduces the observed behavior. Note that the code must run without any modification when pasted into a blank app.js file. A ticket must follow the [Jira Ticket Checklist](http://wiki.appcelerator.org/display/guides/Contributing+to+Titanium#ContributingtoTitanium-Summary%3AJiraTicketChecklist) in order for it to be progressed. Thus, once you have provided some working code, stated the SDK build date and hash (output to the console at app launch), stated the xcode version being used and stated any useful details about the hardware then I can bring it to the attention of the core dev team. I hope you understand. Thanks

    Not sure if opening a closed ticket is the way to go, but since it was just a use case that was missing... For quite an obvious bug... Ah well, rules are rules.
       var tableView = Ti.UI.createTableView({
         style: Ti.UI.iPhone.TableViewStyle.GROUPED
    Expected behavior: An empty tableview with the iOS striped background. Not sure if this is default iOS behavior, but this is what happens when you run on an iPhone (or iPhone simulator) Actual behavior on the iPad (or iPad simulator): And empty tableview with a white (or no?) backgroundcolor.

    Sorry, code should be a complete working sample so adding it to the current window
       var tableView = Ti.UI.createTableView({
         style: Ti.UI.iPhone.TableViewStyle.GROUPED

    Martijn, please open your own ticket if this is still causing you an issue. Thanks
