ListView alphabet quick access index

In the new Beta4 simulator build, the Contacts application has an alphabetical 'access index' on the right-hand side (i'm not sure what else to call this at the moment.


How do we enable this in our own ListViews?

Looking forward to this solution as well - dont like when in build apps use APIs that are not exposed to all.

Re: ListView alphabet quick access index

It could just as easily be a custom control, so there's not likely an API for it, at least not yet.

It doesn't look like it should be too hard to implement something like that on your own.... the Starship Settings sample even shows some of how to do that, although with a slider instead of a ListView.
