    do you really want to change the class name (which means removing a default class and adding a new class) or would it be sufficient to just add a new class to all item (the latter case is way easier)?

    Are the items bound to the list? If so, you can simply add the new class to the template and all clones will have this class as well.

    • Hi Avinash,

      ok, so this requirement seems to be very special. In this case I would attach a onAfterRendering() hook to the template list item and use 'getBindingContext().getPath()' to identify the index of the list item. With this you can call 'this.$().addClass()' to attach a new class to each item.

      I wouldn't call this approach "best practice" since the requirement itself seems to be the actual issue. However, this solution will work independent of the SAPUI5 version and doesn't have a negative impact on the performance.
