Missing vertical scroll bar for ion-content

Hello all,

I am finding that a vertical scroll bar does not appear in an ion-content that houses a very long virtual list. I doubt the list has anything to do with it. The content is clearly much longer than the visible scroll area. I’m referring the the scroll bar that appears when a scroll starts indicates the relative position with the content view. I’m finding this to be true on iOS and Android. iOS is using the native WKWebView and I assume native scrolling as well. My virtual list is 1000 items long. It sure would be handy to the user to know the position :slight_smile: I found variations on my question, asking how to hide the scroll bar – the opposite of my issue.

Having a similar issue on ionic 4. Using a combination of infinite scroll and virtual scroll. When more content is loaded the scrollbar disappears and doesn’t return.
