On the 1.5.0 build from today, creating a row with .backgroundColor set works properly, however changing .backgroundColor on the fly (e.g. after the row has been created and rendered) fails. Works on iOS and Android under 1.4.1.

    Would you mind checking against 1_4_X branch to see if it regressed after that?

    Works on the 1_4_X nightly from Oct 15th at least. I can try a newer one if you need.

    Perfect! Thanks.

    Currently I am having to do a setData([]), followed by a setData(rowData) to properly see the updated colors. Less than optimal, but it should prove that it is a redraw issue or some sort.

    Robby. Please provide the information from the version.txt file in the mobilesdk so we know which build you're testing with.

    Don, please see my comment for #2430, which includes that information along with a working testcase for this bug.

    Looks like this may affect the iOS 1.5.1 release as well. Having the same kind of issues there changing it dynamically on a tableview row. Scrolling the row out and back in view redraws it with the proper backgroundColor.

    Hi there, in case it helps.

    I've noticed the same issue in iOS with some labels properties, when added to a tableview row:

    Changing label.text works, but with label.width set to 'auto', the width doesn't change with the new text length - Until the row is pushed out of view.

    (I'm certain this was OK in 1.4.3, first saw it in 1.5.0 RC2)

    I recorded details and some sample code in Helpdesk:

    test i used to verify this fix:

        var row = Ti.UI.createTableViewRow({ backgroundColor: 'blue' });
        var data = [ row ];
        var table = Ti.UI.createTableView({
            data: data,
            height: '80%'
        var button = Ti.UI.createButton({
            title: 'change bg',
            top: '85%'
        button.addEventListener("click", function(e) {
            row.backgroundColor = "red";

    Verified but needed to set the table view height to a manual height value in order to run test.
